About this book:

This book is rock ’n roll in the inner world of legendary musician and songwriter Anton Goosen. Award-winning journalist Hanlie Retief tells Goosen's extraordinary life story – of his growing up in the Free State, success and fame, the Musiek-en-Liriek-era, life on the road, censorship, highlights and disappointments. . . to where the father of Afrikaans Rock today looks back on his remarkable life.

Readers say

"Anton Goosen het altyd verkies om sy liedjies die praatwerk te laat doen. Sy privaatlewe het geheim gebly. Nie meer nie. Liedjieboer is ’n wonderlike blik op ’n lewe se plesier, prestasies, en ’n hardkoppige wil om dinge op sy unieke manier te bly doen . . . Die feite, die skinner agter die skinner, die hele musikale kragtoer, die man wat rebel én rigtinggewer was. Onvergeetlik."

– Kerneels Breytenbach
