Eamon Nancarrow began his life in Holywood, County Down, Northern Ireland in 1965. Eamon grew up on a council estate and does a fine job of setting the scene in which he grew up: the social state of a country disrupted by the Troubles; a stable loving home; and an increasing fascination with music. Eamon started as an errand boy, progressed to band member of numerous bands, and was surely destined for rock and roll fame. Except, sometimes things didn't go quite the way they were planned.
`There was worse to come.'
There are stories of good and bad roadtrips; of successful and unsuccessful gigs; of fights; of love affairs - all accompanied by some interesting fashion statements and copious quantities of alcohol. Eamon's enduring friendship with Ken Heaven, and the important role of Xan Phillips: what a journey!
So, what makes Eamon's journey different from any other aspiring rock star? I think that it's not so much the journey as Eamon's recounting of it. His ability to see the humour and to not take himself too seriously has undoubtedly turned what might have been an ordinary tale (well, ordinary by aspiring rock and roll standards) into an extraordinary one. Along the way, Eamon makes some great friends with home he shares some hilarious moments. This book is filled with laugh out loud anecdotes, especially funny to those who didn't have to experience some of the happenings described. It's fine craic indeed.
Eamon Nancaroow pursued his dream but didn't let it become a nightmare.Read more ›
It's so freakin' funny. From the early tales to the more mature stages in life, everything has a laugh. Not only his it hilarious, but it's so real. It's a story we all can relate to. I lay in bed at night and giggle out loud. My husband is continually saying, "What!? WHAT!?" I can't say. He just has to wait until I've finished.
While being really funny, it's also full of life's ups and downs.
If you think this book isn't for you because it's about "Rock & Roll," forget that. It's a great tale about an interesting life.
Just stop reading this and buy the darn thing already!
