Description

In his first book, "The 10 Rules of Rock and Roll", Australian singer-songwriter Robert Forster takes readers on an idiosyncratic journey through the past and present of popular music - from Bob Dylan to Cat Power, from AC/DC to Nana Mouskouri, from The Saints to Franz Ferdinand. With thirty years experience as a recording artist/performer and an undimmed love of popular music, Forster's observations about his fellow artists balance the enthusiasm of a fan with an insider's authority. He is that rare thing, a musician who can write about music, and he brings to this collection of critical essays the erudition, wit and craft of his songwriting.
