An autobiography of Bobby Whitlock's life from early childhood to present day life.
Bobby Whitlock's contribution to the music world for Rock and Roll, R&B, Ballads, and Love Songs for nearly 50 years.
Very informative, and easy reading.
I just finished reading this wonderful book, "A Rock And Roll Autobiography" by Bobby Whitlock. Bobby tells the story of his life from early childhood in tough times and places up to and including where he is, and what he's doing today, a span of over 60 years. Although there are many ups and downs in his life, the details and fashion in which he tells his amazing life story, can only be truly gleaned by reading it yourself. Bobby leaves nothing to the imagination. It's all there in his own words, and he tells it like you're sitting there with him. In today's world with the information highway, we can learn a certain amount about anyone, especially famous people, told by whoever, but no one other than this talented man could tell this, and make it so interesting and enjoyable. Without divulging too much from Bobby's book, so I don't spoil it for anyone, I truly believe, if the circumstances surrounding "Derek And The Dominos" had just been just slightly different, they would have gone on to create so much more wonderful music for us all, and more information about the talented members of this great band. I think Eric Clapton is a somewhat private man, and sadly Duane Allman and Carl Radle have passed on. Jim Gordon might not be able to give us what Bobby Whitlock has given us about their band in his autobiography. Bobby and Eric are responsible for forming the band that gave us a glimpse of their greatness, and we are so fortunate to have Bobby Whitlock to share his song writing, musical talent and life story about all the great artists he has written for and played with, and all the great musicians in his newest band, including his wife, CoCo Carmel. Thank you Bobby for all the great music and sharing your life with us.
