Nearly 30 years as a journalist, author, broadcaster and one-time MOJO editor have taken Pat Gilbert on an often surreal journey, spiriting him from Paul McCartney’s secret hideaway in Long Island to Island label boss Chris Blackwell’s retreat at Golden Eye in Jamaica; from a spot on Sex Pistol Steve Jones’ LA radio show and a visit to Dubai with Paul Weller, to an animal rights protest with Chrissie Hynde in Central Park and a visit to Pentonville Prison in the company of Billy Bragg.
Hardback £39.99 ($49.99)
