Blowin' Free - Thirty Years of Wishbone Ash
Gary Carter and Mark Chatterton
When Wishbone Ash celebrated its thirtieth anniversary in 2000, Fire Fly Publications in association with Helter Skelter books commemorated this occasion with the publication of the definitive history of Wishbone Ash.
Compiled by leading Wishbone Ash archivists Gary Carter and Mark Chatterton with full co-operation from most of the bands’ key members, "Blowin’ Free - Thirty Years of Wishbone Ash" traces the history of one of rock music’s best loved and most enduring bands, from their humble beginnings in the west of England, through their seventies commercial peak, and taking the story right up to the new millenium and the band’s thirtieth anniversary celebrations. Utilising unprecedented access to band members and associates, "Blowin’ Free" gives a unique inner view of the band’s career and puts to rest the rumours and inaccuracies found in previous publications.
"Blowin’ Free" tells the Wishbone Ash story with the aid of contemporary and archive quotes from all the various members of the band - past and present - as well as many of their close associates. Included are exclusive new interviews conducted especially for this book.
Packed with memorabilia and rare photos - many from the personal archives of the band members - and featuring an extensive discography and concert date listing, "Blowin’ Free - Thirty Years of Wishbone Ash" is the definitive word on Wishbone Ash and the most in depth study of the bands’ music and career to date, making it an essential purchase and compelling reading for any self respecting follower of the band.
