Daddy Who? is the story of a phenomenon, a band that in eighteen short months changed the course of Australian rock history.
Author and musician Craig Horne was with Daddy Cool every inch of the way. With an insider's view, he tracks the journey from when they burst onto the scene in October 1970, with their infectious doo-wop mayhem, and follows their rapid rise to the top-when they were on the front cover of every newspaper and rock magazine in the country, and when radio churned out hits like 'Eagle Rock', 'Come Back Again' and 'Hi Honey Ho!' virtually nonstop.
The book reveals the madness of Daddy Cool's three US tours, from their showcase performance at LA's Whisky A Go Go, to New York's famed Madison Square Garden, and supporting the likes of Alvin Bishop, Fleetwood Mac, Deep Purple, Little Feat and Captain Beefheart.
Daddy Who? is the first book to tell the complete story of the enduring legacy of one of the most unique and much loved bands Australia has ever produced.
'Daddy Cool are the most impressive band I've ever heard... And 'Eagle Rock' is one of my favourite tracks of all time.'
Sir Elton John
