The story of a once promising young musician, this autobiography demonstrates how Roger Lucey's life journey was radically changed by the South African apartheid.
Having performed songs that reflected upon the cruelty and violence of late 1970s South Africa, Lucey drew unwanted attention from the State and police.
A covert operation made sure that his music career was severely curtailed, forcing Lucey to search for other means of supporting himself.
Following the musician as he explored various careers, including becoming a barman, a roadie, a sound technician, and a news cameraman, this account, told with humanity and humor, is shares the hardships of a nation's history.
