Daron's Guitar Chronicles: Omnibus 2
What's a young, gay guitarist to do when his father's a homophobic jerk who might be embezzling from the band and his lead singer can't decide which he wants more, control of the band or love? Sex, drugs, and rock and roll... if only it were that simple.
Collecting chapters 206 through 388 of the award-winning web serial, this second omnibus of Daron's Guitar Chronicles follows Daron and the band Moondog Three all over North America as they take part in a major arena tour. It's summer 1989 and Daron and Ziggy have settled into a precarious working balance; Ziggy has agreed not to push things, to give Daron some space. Plenty of creative energy is still flowing back and forth between them, though, and really, how much space is there to spare with everyone in the same tour bus for two months? Plus trouble awaits on the road: clashes with opening bands, encounters with odd strangers, the dangers of excess, a reunion with an old family member... A lot can happen in two months.
This omnibus paperback includes several bonus features, including three pages of never-before-seen "clippings" of band press and two graphical timelines matching the events before and during DGC with historical events and significant moments in pop culture, gay rights, and American history.
Praise from readers:
"Daron's story is a visceral, modern, immediate sort of experience."
"I get let in to Daron's world so much each book that I feel like I know him face-to-face. I feel like I can begin to read his thoughts like a friend that I've known years."
"The author has a way of making you feel that you are in the room, or perhaps, playing the guitar on stage yourself, that I have not experienced reading any other book. I can feel Ziggy applying my eyeliner as I experience Daron's prepping for a concert."
"The love story is there-the tension and rise and fall of drama between Ziggy and Daron is gorgeously, deftly maintained throughout. But there's more than that, and while I can't wait to see what happens next in this insane, wonderful romance... I also started looking into picking up my bass and starting to play some music again."
