Roger Daltrey is the voice of a generation. That generation was the first to rebel, to step out of the shadows of the Second World War...to invent the concept of the teenager. This is his story, from his birth at the height of the Blitz through tempestuous school days to his expulsion, age 15, for a crime he did not commit (though he was guilty of many other misdemeanours he'd got away with). Thanks to Mr Kibblewhite, his draconian headmaster, it could all have ended there. The life of a factory worker beckoned. But then came rock and roll....

One of my heroes in rock and roll. Perhaps not as much on life out of the band but plenty about the band.

The return of Twin Peaks is one of the most anticipated events in the history of television. The subject of endless speculation, shrouded in mystery, fans will come flocking to see Mark Frost and David Lynch's inimitable vision once again grace the screen. Featuring all the characters we know and love from the first series, as well as a list of high-powered actors in new roles, the show will be endlessly debated, discussed, and dissected.

Bilbo Baggins is a hobbit who enjoys a comfortable, unambitious life, rarely travelling further than the pantry of his hobbit-hole in Bag End. But his contentment is disturbed when the wizard, Gandalf, and a company of 13 dwarves arrive on his doorstep one day to whisk him away on an unexpected journey ‘there and back again’. They have a plot to raid the treasure hoard of Smaug the Magnificent, a large and very dangerous dragon.

i remember getting a pc game of the hobbit in the 1980s. it came with a copy of the book for tips, so of course i started to read it. the game started in gollum's caves if i remember right, and, of course, the book started somewhere different. having seen lord of the rings films and the hobbit film now out, i decided to try tolkien's writing again, but have it read to me instead! i got ththe first part as part of my trial to audible.co.uk and bought thesecond part as soon as the first one was finished. well read, with funny voices a la jackanory as it should be. my only fiction via audible, but so far the best book downloaded. i would recommend to anybody without the time to read, but instead listen on the commute to work.
