Drowning By Numbers

It's 1994. Blur and Oasis are in the charts. New Labour are on the near horizon. Ladbroke Grove is the place, a thriving hub of art, music and cultural diversity.

Emerging from the wreckage of another lost weekend, Indie Guitarist of the Year, Joe E Byron, hurries home on the Tube to face the consequences of his actions. Ten years on the road has taken its toll. He should be spending more time with Justine and the kids. Instead, he's restless, angry, and in conflict with his manager and the rest of the band. Dark habits threaten his marriage and career. The curse of addiction that will rob him of everything. And at the heart of it all, a yearning to be free, to take off and never come back.

But that can't happen. There's too much at stake.

Besides,

He's a god.<

He's a legend.

And the only thing worse than dying is the prospect of fading away. More info →
