Publisher's Summary

Touring with AC/DC. Befriending The Beatles. Writing one of the world’s most iconic rock songs.

This is the story of a young boy from a small town who dreamt of one day playing the guitar for a living – and ended up a rock n’ roll legend.

It follows Bernie Marsden’s astonishing career in the industry – from tours in Cold War Germany and Franco’s Spain, to meeting and befriending George Harrison and touring Europe with AC/DC. It’s a story of hard graft, of life on the road, of meeting and playing with your heroes, of writing iconic rock songs – most notably the multi-million selling hit ‘Here I Go Again’ – and of being in one of the biggest rock bands of all time. At age 30, Bernie left Whitesnake due to serious conflict with his management, something he explores in this memoir for the very first time.

Packed with stories and encounters with the likes of Ringo Starr, Elton John, Cozy Powell, Ozzy Osborne, B.B. King and Jon Lord, this is not just a remarkable look into the highs and lows of being a true music legend, but an intimate account of the revolutionary impact rock and roll music has offered to the world.

wonderful tales

bernie's a great storyteller.
his recounting of meeting some legends,& the inner-workings of the music business, is fascinating.
the (exclusive to the audible version of the book) bonus chapter at the end of the bb king interview, was a welcome addition.

If you are a music fan

Really good insight to what life as a dedicated guitar man is like. Bernie clearly has the Whitesnake legacy and its such a shame that didn’t last as it sort of cast a shadow ever since.
Great listen tho👍

Thoroughly enjoyable listen

One of the best musician's biographies I've experienced. Entertaining, honest and refreshingly humble Bernie comes across as a very personable character that it becomes a pleasure to spend a few hours listening to. For anyone who is a guitarist or simply grew up listening to music in the late sixties and seventies I would say this essential reading.

Immensely Satisfying Listen

I love autobiographies and if they relate to the world of music, then so much the better.
There are some wonderful recounts, and thus one from the great Bernie Marsden is up there with the best.
In many ways, I know less about Bernie's life than most others read/listened to, and yet this bio is SO well narrated, incredibly deep and involves the listener so very well. I was born 3yrs after Bernie, mid 50s, and as such identify with so many of his recollections...many of the gigs he attended, I was there too, since whilst not a professional guitarist, just a player, all I did with my youth was attend gigs weekly. It was such a great listen, not just due to those parallels, but Bernies warm & friendly delivery made it all such a pleasure.
If you're anything like me, and enjoy music and it's rich backgrounds, behind the scenes and so on, don't hesitate and get this very, very highly recommended book....and Bernie, thank you so much for the tune and effort....its an amazing life you've led, and a wonderful body of work.
Rock-On, Man ❤
