A celebratory curry and romantic evening were the only items that Rachael had planned for Harry's birthday. The railroad trip across India with a blues band, a road-worn guitar, kidnapping, a procession of elephants and unexpected additions to the entourage were definitely not on the menu.

Along with his three children, his fiancé Rachael, the blues band and the inimitable Mr Chatterjee, Harry is confronted with the mystique and contradictions of the Sub-Continent as rising temperatures and dubious temperaments cause increasing disharmony amongst the Band. Negotiating erratic taxis, bizarre bazaars, errant musicians, and wild Tuk-Tuks, what Harry thought he'd lost, he found with more besides.

Finally, playing the blues at a prestigious wedding reception, along with an Indian dance troupe, Harry reflects on a cacophony of experiences that just prove that no matter where you are, the blues is more than a collection of tunes, it's a lifestyle...with added spice.

About the Author

Pete Townshend is a composer, guitarist, and musical director of the British rock group the Who. He grew up in Shepherd's Bush, a middle-class suburb of London, and attended art school as a youth. At age 13 Townshend began gigging with guitarist (and later bassist) John Entwistle, who in early 1962 encouraged Townshend to join him in the Detours, a group led by singer Roger Daltrey. Two years later the group changed its name to the Who.
