Bobby Whitlock’s long-awaited autobiography is out now from U.S. publisher McFarland. The highly anticipated book has a foreword by Eric Clapton and was written with the assistance of music historian and author, Marc Roberty. In the book, Bobby tells the story of his traumatic childhood and how his love of music allowed him to escape his abusive father. He also takes readers on a musical journey through his teen-age days at Stax Records, his time with Delaney & Bonnie & Friends and Derek & The Dominos, his session work and solo career. From an insider’s perspective, he’ll share extraordinary details about the recording of legendary albums Layla and Other Assorted Love Songs, All Things Must Pass, and Exile On Main Street. As Bobby is a natural-born storyteller, the book has plenty of anecdotes about Eric Clapton, the rest of the Dominos, George Harrison, The Rolling Stones, The Allman Brothers, Leon Russell, Keith Moon, Elton John and many more.
