In 1982 I blossomed from a naive fourteen-year-old attempting to slot in with the cool young ones to whatever even more: a naive eyeliner-wearing, fifteen-year-old attempting to slot in with the cool kids.

So writes Jian Ghomeshi during this, his first booklet, 1982. it's a memoir advised throughout ten intertwined tales of the songs and musical moments that modified his lifestyles. captivated with David Bowie ("I desired to be Bowie," he recalls), the adolescent Ghomeshi embarks on a Nick Hornbyesque trip to make track the centre of his existence. reputation intended being cool, and being cool intended being Bowie. And being Bowie intended pointy black boots, eyeliner, and hair gel. upload to that the basic all-black cloth wardrobe and you have got very careworn Iranian mom and dad, busy themselves with gaining popularity in Canada opposed to the backdrop of the revolution in Iran.

And it's certainly the 1st rock memoir via a Persian-Canadian new waver.
