Interviews with a musical luminaries and legends.

My biographical father died on Sunday, November 28, 1993, after falling downstairs drunk and never regaining consciousness. My real father was discovered on the bathroom floor of Graceland, August 16, 1977, and was pronounced dead at 3:30 PM having never regained consciousness.

1964 is monochrome. The blacks blacker and the whites whiter than they are now... Andrew Darlington has been conducting interviews with rock's main players for the past twenty years. Fuelled by testosterone, the napalm that was Elvis and hopes to bed hippie chicks he set out in the late-sixties on a phantasmagorical personal quest. The quest is far from being over, but continues to throw him into the company of rock's most legendary performers.

Andrew Darlington has been a regular contributor to Hot Press, Rock’n’Reel, Jamming, Zig Zag, Terminal, International Times and Headpress. He lives in Yorkshire, Great Britain.
