The Story Of A 60s Drummer
 FRONT COVER of The Book

"This is the story of a wee boy from a family in Glasgow, Scotland, who grew up to experience the dream of appearing with the legendary Jimmy Page (Led Zeppelin) on Cartoone’s debut album on the famous Atlantic Record label, and also touring the USA in support of Led Zeppelin and other great bands.

Never in his wildest dreams would he have believed that he would share the stage with the best drummer in the world, John Bonham, plus Robert Plant, Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones when Zeppelin were just starting out and trying to break America.  That is what most musicians hope to achieve, but most never do.

And then tragedy struck..."

An absolutely cracking read, provides some real insight into the music business in the 60’s. Life is all about high and lows and Charlie has experienced those dizzying heights and the struggles that come with the lows. An Amazing man.

Charlie has experienced the real highs and lows of life including the swinging 60’s music scene – a brave survivor when his circumstances changed so dramatically. A generous, caring man and a gifted musician who is a true inspiration to others – a ‘read’ not to be missed.

Charlie’s book is a beautiful journey through Time and Music, it made me laugh, cry, think & smile.it’s not short of twists and turns and anyone reading it will find something meaningful to reflect on as well as lots of funny anecdotes. It would make a fabulous gift to a wannabe musician/artist or anyone who appreciates Life and Music. I recommend it 100%

Enjoyed this book, a nice easy read almost like having a conversation with the writer, it gives a good insight on what it was like to be involved in music in the late 60’s and how difficult the music business can be, and still is.
Charlie has to be admired for his fight against the dreaded cancer and I’m sure his book will give hope and help to anyone going through a similar thing.

Big thank you to Mike Perry and all the Bell Perc crew for all their support with my book.

The proceeds go to the two cancer charities I support, so not only do you get a good story to read, you also help support my cancer charities as well, so what’s not to like.

Hopefully everyone will buy my book and make it a best seller.

May the groove always be with you.

Best wishes

Charlie
