Books Info:

Billy Thorpe's Time on Earth free pdf No one rocked like Billy Thorpe. His live shows with the Aztecs and wild performances at outdoor concerts like Sunbury and the Myer Music Bowl have gone down in history as some of the most intense ever: loud, heartfelt and blistering. His untimely death in 2007 sent Australia and the wider music scene into mourning. Now, in the first full biography of this extraordinary singer, songwriter, musician and author, we learn of Billy's start in showbiz. A later move to Melbourne saw Billy Thorpe and the Aztecs develop into a legendary hard rock group, and the single that was to become Billy's anthem - 'Most People I Know Think That I'm Crazy'. Despite spending 20 years in the US, Billy Thorpe never lost his popularity in Australia, and went on to write two bestselling semi-autobiographical novels, Sex and Thugs and Rock 'n' Roll, and Most People I Know Think That I'm Crazy, as well as appearing in comebacks and tributes.
