In einem gnadenlos direkten und witzigen Schreibstil erzählt HF Coltello hier ein Stück deutsche Undergroundgeschichte. Echte Musik. Süddeutschland, das alte Westberlin, der Fall der Mauer. Die Szene in Kreuzberg, in der sich die verrückten Protagonisten tummeln. Mit ihnen zusammen oder alleine betreten Coltello und seine Gitarre unablässig neue, stets eigenwillige und nicht nur musikalische Welten, in ganz Europa, den united states, Asien, Südamerika oder im Nahen Osten.
Ein Roadmovie eben.
Ein Roman über den wahren Rock'n'Roll.
