Linoleum is a 472-page epic roller coaster of a rock ‘n roll novel that will take you on an emotional roller coaster ride of massive highs and terrible lows as you follow the trajectory of five ordinary people that, inspired by their musical heroes, are thrust into the spotlight and become the best band in Britain.
During the era that Tony Blair christened Cool Britannia, the mid 90s, some amazing new bands emerged from Britain: Oasis, The Charlatans, and The Stone Roses to name but a few. This book is the story of a small group of close friends who stumble into that world of excess and fame, and their meteoric rise to mega-stardom.
There’s the money, the music, the drugs, the drink binges, constant adoration and attention from fans, but what about the other side of it? The paparazzi, the gossip magazines and papers, the pressure to perform, constantly touring, never getting a moment’s peace – how will all that affect their relationships?
Is it possible to not let fame go to your head?
Will their friendship survive the journey?
