There are plenty of books about 1970s excess - of chauffeur-driven limos, soulless stadiums and endless supplies of cocaine. For Tyla, though, it was mainly unreliable tour vans, smoky pubs and amphetamine sulphate, plus occasional glimpses of the Promised Land to keep him going. This is a fascinating autobiography of the highs and lows of a musician's life in the 1970s. Starting with his entry into the music business in 1970 as a jobbing songwriter for Lionel Bart, the book covers ace pub rockers Ducks Deluxe, The Tyla Gang and a solo career.
