AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Where do all the old pop stars go? Sometimes they become parents...When an old film clip of her mother and father dressed in satin disco gear is aired on national television, Marie Harker nearly dies of embarrassment. But with the band's re-formation, Marie begins to realise that her parents' stories about their past are full of inconsistencies. Skeletons start tumbling out of the cupboard and Marie learns things about her past she would rather not have confronted. (Back cover blurb).

Notes

  • Dedication: This book is dedicated to Maria (BCR) Letters, another member of the Countdown generation.
  • Epigraph: When I walk down the street, See the people who stop and stare And say haven't I seen the face somewhere A long time ago...Take a look at me I'm Yesterday's Hero. Harry Vanda & George Young, 'Yesterday's Hero', 1975.

    It's hard not being a star any more. The facade drops away, and the television drops away, and people forget...I liked being a celebrity, I liked signing autographs. I played the game. When that falls away...You don't know who you are any more. Keith Lamb, former lead singer of Hush, 'Glad All Over', 1993.
