Recommended Reading, with a personal connection!!
You may be wondering why an autobiographical book by a member of Fairport Convention appears on my website?
Well, in addition to it being a fascinating read, this 2018 book is co-written by my brother Nigel Schofield, who has collated his many hours of long relaxed conversations with Dave Pegg, and together created this very interesting 272 page hardback, the index of which, comprising of people featured in Dave Pegg's anecdotes, reads like a who's who of the music industry.
To quote the back cover of the book "Dave Pegg is one of rock music's great raconteurs. He's been asked hundreds of times to put at least some of his many memoirs and memories into a book. Off the Pegg is that book. With Fairport historian Nigel Schofield as his trusty Sancho Panza, his picaresque recollections take us around the globe, on the road and on stage with Fairport Convention, Jethro Tull and the other bands of which he has been a member, backstage with many of the greatest names in rock music and behind the scenes at the annual Cropredy festival which he and his wife established .... and much more.
It's a book they're already calling "one of the essential rock'n'roll autobiographies"
