Featured Review on this writing by Criss Sole

The Rockstar is a trilogy of mini-books that chronicle the experiences of a lad who stumbles into a life centered on music. It is the story of his journey from a teenager in the sixties through to his final concert he dreamed of performing. As with all of us, it was a life ranging in great joys, love and agonizing tragedy all laced with intrigue.

In Beginnings, the sixties saw many teens dream of becoming a Rockstar. Rock ‘n Roll was emerging as the popular genre of music. The brief popularity burst of guitar bands gave cause and simplicity of hopes and passions of fledgling musicians. The inevitable journey to emotional maturity provided by life experiences enabled a bright young man to find his life’s way.
