About The Book
The Republic of Rock ‘n’ Roll – The Roaring 80s from Curtis to Cobain is a fascinating musical journey through the 1980s, as seen through the eyes of pop culture expert Kim Clarke Champniss. The ebook, which links to iTunes, is packed with trivia and photographs, and captures the history, energy, music and excitement of a revolutionary decade. It also tells the real life story of one man trying to make a living in the mercurial music industry during a turbulent era. The story starts off in Vancouver when Kim was an influential New Wave night club deejay, and follows him through the decade as he progresses to become manager of one of Canada’s pioneer electronic bands (Images In Vogue), and then a MuchMusic veejay based in Toronto traveling the world reporting on rock ‘n’ roll.
