Abstract:

In this intimate work, Andy Summers writes fluidly about his first guitar, his experiences with earlier bands, his relationships and encounters with Eric Clapton, Jimi Hendrix, John Belushi, and The Police, and more. Less-known is Andy's early musical career in the U.K., where he achieved moderate fame. But after Andy ended up in California, ultimately finding himself out of work and teaching lessons, he returned to England, where serendipitous circumstances found him on a train with Stewart Copeland. The rest was history. This is the moving, gently (and often acidly) funny memoir of a premier guitarist who ultimately found himself at the top of the world.--From publisher description.
