Edited by Ian Whates

An anthology of stories inspired by artists who have left us too soon. The finished anthology includes tributes to megastars and lesser-known figures, to the predictable and the less so, and I’m proud to present each and every one. In these trying times, what could be better than kicking back, putting on your favourite piece of music, and enjoying a good story or two, which may just stir a memory of days gone by?
