About the Author:

Paul Vernon was born in Hampstead, London, raised in music and currently lives in Spain with the rest of the old London Wide Boys. He has spent his life so far attempting to convince people that obscure music is worth listening to. He now cooks a decent meal most nights and is currently writing "Just Run Some Bloody Heat Through It, Mate", a kitchen manual for domestically-challenged blokes, and "The Inadvertent Cough on Record, 1899-1980: An Annotated Discography". When last seen by his wife he was still breathing.

Book Description Music Mentor Books, United Kingdom, 2008. Paperback. Condition: New. UK ed.. Language: English . Brand New Book. Born to shell-shocked parents in shell-shocked London shortly after the end of World War II, Paul Sailor Vernon came into his own during the 1960s when spotty teenage herberts with bad haircuts began discovering The Blues. For the Sailor it became a lifelong obsession that led him first to record collecting and stalking unsuspecting visiting bluesmen, and then into a whirlwind of activity as a rare record hunter, record dealer, magazine proprietor/editor, video bootlegger and record company director before a variety of personal and business setbacks eventually ushered him into seeking a more stable form of existence. The many twists and turns in the author s roller-coaster adventure of a life are all vividly charted in this hilarious illustrated autobiography. GASP as you read how he road-tripped his way through the Deep South armed only with a Rand McNally map, a Swiss army knife and an emergency jar of Marmite! MARVEL as you absorb in-depth descriptions of legendary performances by long-departed giants of the Blues! CHOKE on your coffee as one rotten gag after another blindsides you! REND YOUR GARMENTS as you realise just how many original Blues 78 s went through his sweaty hands! SHOUT BLIMEY! within earshot of surprised elderly relatives as you follow the rags-to-riches tale of his extraordinary life! It s all here in this one-of-a-kind life history that will leave you reaching for an enamel bucket and a fresh bottle of disinfectant!. Seller Inventory # AAG9780954706845
