The Roots of Rock, from Cardiff to Mississippi and Back

Peter Finch

The Roots of Rock, from Cardiff to Mississippi and Back by Peter FinchIn The Roots of Rock, from Cardiff to Mississippi and Back Peter Finch reflects on how popular music has shaped both his life and the culture in which he lives, from first hearing American music on the radio in his Cardiff home in the 1950s to the compendious and downloadable riches of digital files. Finch has always gone to gigs and now he travels to the bars of Ireland, the clubs of New York, the plains of Tennessee, the flatlands of Mississippi and the mountains of North Carolina to get a feel for the culture from which his favourite music originates.

I Saw Him Standing There

Mike Powell

I Saw Him Standing There by Mike Powell

Imagine if John Lennon was still alive.
What music would he be creating?
Would he still be doodling and drawing images he sees all around him?
Sadly at the young age of forty, his life was cruelly snatched away from him and his music and creativity died with him
