The second of a trilogy of mini-books that chronicle the experiences of a young guy who works his way through a life centered on music. It continues 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, his life ranged with great joys, intense love and agonizing tragedy all laced with intrigue.

In Stardom, the Rockstar experiences all the challenges Canadian garage bands struggled with in their quest for the pinnacle of the rock music world. It was an elusive dream fraught with many perils. Embarking on an unchartered path which only perseverance, good decisions and strokes of luck resulted in the fulfilment of the dream was but only part of the challenge. Time on the road and the demands of performances took an exacting toll on relationships. The Rockstar experienced them all along with the final tragic event.
