Any musician who grew up in the 50's and 60's, when the boundaries of music were being pushed further than they ever will again, will empathise with Doc and his struggles with family, friends and school to fulfil his ambition to be a blues musician. I urge all of those musicians to read this book; it will bring a tear to your eyes of both sadness and joy. I can't recommend it enough. Anybody who thinks The Beatles `Revolver' album was the best one they made certainly knows his stuff!
The maturity displayed by the author at such a young age is remarkable, as is the appreciation and enjoyment the author shows for everything he experiences. In the book, he also narrates the difficulties he experienced while growing up, but without putting himself in the role of a victim. He tells us of his relationship with his friends and his parents, his experiences at school, and how he got to form a Blues band with his friends, for whom he shows a profound admiration as musicians. I found An odd boy to be highly entertaining. It is a memoir filled with joy, humor and sadness. I literally couldn't put it down.
