Are We Still Rolling? by : Phill Brown
From the author's first glimpse of a magical recording studio in the mid-1960s up through a busy career that continues to the present day; this rollicking story can only be told by those that were there. As the young tape operator on sessions for the Rolling Stones; Jimi Hendrix; and Joe Cocker at the famed Olympic Sound Studios in London; Phill learned the ropes from experienced engineers and producers such as Glyn Johns and Eddie Kramer. Phill soon worked his way up engineering sessions for Mott the Hoople; David Bowie; Led Zeppelin; Bob Marley and many other lendary rockers. He eventually became a freelance engineer/producer and worked with Roxy Music; Go West; Talk Talk; and Robert Plant.
But more than a recollection of participating in some of the most treasured music of the past 40 years; this is a man's journey through life as Phill struggles to balance his home and family with a job where drug abuse; chaos; rampant egos; greed; lies and the increasingly invasive record business take their toll. It's also a cautionary tale; where long workdays and what once seemed like harmless indulgences become health risks; yet eventually offer a time to reflect back on.
