Reading My Arse! Synopsis

Ricky Tomlinson, master storyteller, was right there in Liverpool at the start of the Mersey Beat music revolution led by The Beatles. In SEARCHING FOR THE ROCK ISLAND LINE, Ricky captures one of the most exciting eras in the history of rock 'n' roll, when it was being challenged in the popularity stakes by the washboard beat of skiffle.

 

It is the compelling story of how the lyrics of a song lead a young Scouse musician on an adventure that takes him across the United States and through a series of life-changing experiences.

 

This is a thrilling tale that is certain to strike a chord with anybody interested in the formative times of The Beatles. Those were the days, my friends . . .
