I lived the life, I was a rock musician in the 70's and 80's, and the world desccribed by Roger Trott is the real deal, right down to the Heart sisters (although he left out the poodle). "Getting in Tune" is as authentic an experience as you'll ever have to being on the road, and standing on stage in front of a raucus, inebriated, and wildly unpredictable crowd. Punk was just about to explode, and this has to be the best trip back to those days you'll find anywhere.

Have you been in a Rock and Roll band? Do you know someone who has been in a Rock & Roll band? Wanna visit or revisit the 1970s? Read Getting In Tune.

I knew nothing of rock n' roll life in the 70's before picking up this novel so not only was the book entertaining, it was educational. The book gave a raw, honest perspective of life in a band - the good, the bad, and the ugly. I would never have expected to be able to relate to characters that are so completely different from myself but I found myself understanding, sympathizing, and caring for the guys in the band. It was a sad moment when I turned the last page leaving Daniel, Rob, Mick, Yogi, and Sam behind. I would snag the sequel in a second. Great read. (Favorite quote: 'It's turned black! And it's all your fault!' page 166)

I enjoyed Getting In Tune from the moment I started reading. The characters, the 70's, the music...so many things I connected with. It was written in such a way that I could clearly visualize all the people, events, etc. It was one of those books that I couldn't wait to see what would happen next!

It is one of those books that you don't want to end because you are living it. Roger brought the characters to life. I found myself laughing outloud especially during the animal cookie attack. What happened when the band arrived home?

As a writer, I like this book because there¿s nothing fussy about the prose. It¿s clean, straightforward, and the characters are engaging right off the bat. Yes, they¿re recognizable types, but they feel true. Equally entertaining is how much Trott captures the details and mood of an era. Was cracking up all the way through. The water bed right at the beginning, the phone booths, the songs playing in the background. Hell, the word bodacious, the smell of the amp tubes and the wires and litter on the stage floors. This book captures the energy and drive and confusion of a particular culture. Even better, it recreates the high of loud, rocking music when everyone¿s locked in to the same groove.

I loved this book. It was great fun to read. It's a rock 'n roll romp that made me feel like I was on the road with the band during the '70s. I loved Daniel's search for the universal chord. We are all in search of that indescribable chord in music and in life. Trott nailed it through the lead character's voice. Only a musician could write a rock 'n roll book like this with a group of young guys on the road. He nails it. Only trouble is I want to go on the road, too!
