Description


A Fire That Wouldn’t Go Out follows the author on a musical journey that ebbs and flows through a torrent of emotions, much like music itself does. It is a poignant yet whimsical love letter to music accompanied by a virtual treasure trove of experiences and memorabilia. A child receives a pair of drum sticks as a gift, which ignites in him a ravenous curiosity and deep-seated yearning to find music that speaks his language, music that speaks to his very soul. And that spark that started him on his quest for musical discovery turns into a wildfire when he dusts off a cache of vinyl 45s and puts the needle to the wax for his very first listen of countless classic melodies. Hearing these songs for the very first time sets him adrift upon a musical ocean that cascades into a lifetime of rock n’roll. Follow the author as he grows through childhood and the awkward music of the 1980s to a musical awakening and personal revolution in the 1990s that propels him on a never-ending road trip of record stores, night clubs, and stadiums, all to be a part of any one of the tiny pieces of music history that may happen in any given place, at any given time. Be there with him when he finds what he sought all along – Inspiration. There is no point A, point B, or any particular destination. As you join this road trip, you are accompanied not only by the author but also by the music that continually defines his journey. You’ll find the road to be a fast-paced motorway replete with a comical yet pragmatic look at the music industry and music psychology. This adventure put down on paper will forevermore be your go-to guide for how to circumnavigate the musical world in which we live. Along the way, you, too, will discover how music has molded who you are, just as it did the author, and perhaps you will find something you have been seeking as well. But most importantly, you will discover that anyone’s musical experiences, be it yours or the author’s or that kid with the green Mohawk, combat boots, and enough facial piercings to never be able to walk quietly through a metal detector, all of our musical experiences overlap and intermingle to form one collective story, one collaborative ensemble performing the song of life, one collective fire— a fire that will never go out.
