Graham Bond: The Mighty Shadow

£24.99

Product description

On the 8th of May 1974 a man propelled himself into the path of a train at Finsbury Park Underground station: the mangled body was later identified from its fingerprints - which revealed a criminal record - as that of Graham Bond.

When Graham Bond died in these bizarre circumstances he was only 37 but his roller-coaster life's influence on the development of rock music was still being felt. It was the same man who had been a major force in the British R&B movement; who had worked with a list of stars such as Alexis Korner, Ginger Baker and Jack Bruce; who had "invented" jazz-rock; and who was an outstanding alto saxophonist and organist.

This biography, although it is completely factual, reads like the plot of a popular fiction thriller. It is a modern fable of one of rock's less romanticised victims. It does not moralize but perhaps offers an insight into the turmoil of a talented mind that was creative but, shredded by the temptations of rock 'n' roll excess, proved ultimately self-destructive.

Foreword by Pete Brown.

This is a used hardback book in good overall condition. Please refer to photographs for further details. There are remains of a pencil inscription on the first blank page.
