Overview

The rock music legend who heavily influenced Alice Cooper, Marilyn Manson, George Clinton, Kiss, and many more tells his lengthy and remarkable life story for the first time in detail

Beyond his immovable association with flaming headgear and the seminal hit "Fire," there is much more to the life and career of Arthur Brown. From being declared dead just after he was born, through school years (trashing a master's room at the age of 10) and turning down the chance to go to Oxford, to his involvement in the world of music, this autobiography tells a strange and empowering tale. He tells the story of how he lost a political party in France a seat in parliament though his antics onstage, details his run-ins with the Mafia and the army, and discusses his work bringing African music to the West, helping to inspire the growth of world music. Always innovative, and an inveterate experimenter, Arthur and his music have inspired countless acts. Alice Cooper is a huge fan and publicly acknowledges the debt he owes, and Bruce Dickinson of Iron Maiden is another well-known admirer. The list of high-profile musicians who are in his debt is lengthy. This book will be of interest to Arthur's fans, as well as fans of rock history as a whole.
