The book’s genesis was during a trip back to the UK by Brian, who discovered that Tony had kept diaries of all the gigs they’d had; tiny little books with the basics: ‘Crigglestone Working Men’s Club £12 – amplifier blew up’
Brian and Tony collaborated some 20,000 kms apart and wrote the book starting with the diaries, which was self-published in hard back in 1992.
