The album is a companion to Gregg Kofi Brown's autobiography of the same name which covers his early career in Los Angeles and London. From his first pro tour with Joe Cocker and Eric Burdon to close encounters of a third kind in a California desert and his adventures touring the world with African rock pioneers Osibisa. His journey includes starring in hit west end productions in London, recording and touring with infamous rock bands like Hanoi Rocks and The Members.

Says Gregg, “Follow my fly on the wall look at the music scene in London and Los Angeles during the 70's, 80's and 90's. Sex, politics, murder, miracles and lots of awesome music are all part of the mix during this amazing journey! True tales of the music scene in 70's LA and 80's/90's London, with cameos from the likes of Sean Connery, Kim Wilde, Isaac Hayes, Joe Cocker, Eric Burdon, Elton John, Peter Green, Billy Cobham, Osibisa, Salif Keita, Pete Townshend, Youssou N'Dour, Fela Kuti, Lauryn Hill, Sting, Damon Albarn & Des'ree. A murder in LA, a close encounter in the desert, a miracle in Africa, an epiphany in London and a number one hit in the USA. A cultural journey. A great holiday read.”

At the beginning of this account of his fascinating life he writes: “My life in the music and entertainment industry has always had its entry point on several cascading levels. That is to say the various opportunities that have availed themselves to me have forced me to wear many hats on a daily basis. Whether it's supporting Jimmy Cliff at a festival in Vienna or teaching a music theory class in London, I am blessed to be working in a business I enjoy.”

Follow him on the journey of a lifetime...
