    Colin was a kind of a member of these groups. A great person I did work with when I was working with ET Concerts in Denmark, who did Puple and Rainbow in Scandinavia and most parts of Europe. I look forward to read his book, and wish I will meet him again one day.
    Colin I hope you are well!!!

    “Deluxe Slipcase with bonus book”!!!

    LOL. Now they’re doing it with books….

    Think I’ll wait for the remastered edition with previously unreleased chapters and rewrites….

    I am actually looking forward to this book but I’ll be buying the basic paperback or waiting for an iPad version.

    Definately read this one!

    My friend Graham Wright, brought out a book called’How Black was our Sabbath?’ about the time he spent working for the band (It was to be called ‘How Slack was our Haddock?’ – ‘Slack Haddock’ being the Crew’s name for Ozzy & Co).

    My time associated with the guys was included in one of the three chapters that the Publishers threw out – what do they know???

    I’ll buy the personally autographed deluxe edition with great pleasure and anticipation. Then make myself comfy on the chaise with a bottle of chilled Chablis, and take a trip with you Colin. Can’t wait 🙂
