THE 10 RULES
OF ROCK ’N' ROLL

Collected Music Writing

By Robert Forster

In his first book, The 10 Rules of Rock ’n’ Roll, Australian singer-songwriter Robert Forster takes readers on an idiosyncratic journey through the past and present of popular music – from Bob Dylan to Cat Power, from AC/DC to Nana Mouskouri, from The Saints to Franz Ferdinand.

With 30 years experience as a recording artist/performer and an undimmed love of popular music, Forster’s observations about his fellow artists balance the enthusiasm of a fan with an insider’s authority. He is that rare thing, a musician who can write about music, and he brings to this collection of critical essays the erudition, wit and craft of his songwriting.

Author

Critically-acclaimed Australian singer-songwriter Robert Forster has released 14 albums, five as a solo artist and nine with The Go-Betweens. In 2005, with virtually no previous writing experience, he became the  music critic for Australian magazine The Monthly. The following year he won the Pascall Prize for Critical Writing.

The 10 Rules of Rock ’n’ Roll is his first book. Forster lives is Brisbane, Australia.
