One of the finest but least known guitarists of the British Invasion was Caleb Quaye. He and Dale A. Berryhill offer a fascinating behind-the-bands look at the American and British rock scene of the sixties, seventies and early eighties. Beyond the glamor, the fame, the sex, the interminable tours and the haze of drugs, Quaye wondered several times: “Is this all there is?" Quaye writes: ”“When I was hobnobbing with some of the biggest stars popular music has ever produced – Paul McCartney, Mick Jagger, Pete Townshend, Lou Reed, Hall & Oates and most notably, Elton John – I thought I had what matters in life. If I had stopped to think about it, I would have dismissed the idea of religious faith as something unreal. Today, I see that it was the fame and the success that were unreal and transient and that it is my religious faith that is meaningful and lasting,”
