BOOK LAUNCH EVENT : Friday 24th March 6pm with Spencer Vignes
Train Kept a Rollin’: How the Train Song Changed the Face of Popular Music.
There’s something about a lonesome train whistle, or the rattle of steel wheels on the tracks, that stirs emotions deep within the human soul. Trains symbolize freedom, hope, travel, escape, sad partings and joyful reunions, along with a yearning to see what’s around the next bend.
Longtime music and train fan, Spencer Vignes, marries his two passions in a book that gets to the heart of the genre. Painstakingly researched, he has interviewed an array of singers, songwriters and musicians who share the secrets of how and why they came to write, or record, their train songs.
Over 40 people were interviewed for this book, so climb on board in the company of Ian Anderson (Jethro Tull), Nick Cave, Ray Davies (The Kinks), Chris Difford (Squeeze), Sheena Easton, Bryan Ferry, Tom Johnston (Doobie Brothers), Chas McDevitt, Francis Rossi (Status Quo), Peggy Seeger, Brian Setzer (Stray Cats), Rod Stewart and many more famous names, all of whom are happy to proclaim their love of trains and train songs.
