In this frank and funny book, Zoe Street Howe breaks the glitzy surface of a media obsession and seeks the reality from the horses' mouths.

Whether you rejoice or seethe at the mention of Peaches, Jade or Jack or if you are born of rock heritage yourself and are considering changing your name and moving to Mongolia, this book may make you see things a little differently.

Zoe Street Howe speaks to Ian Dury's son Baxter, Dylan Howe (Steve Howe), Julian Lennon, Calico Cooper (Alice Cooper), Jazz Domino Holly (Joe Strummer), Natascha Elinore (Jack Bruce), Aaron Horn (Trevor Horn) and many other children of iconic figures in the music industry in this revealing slice of rock 'n' roll literature.
