Deke Leonard Maximum Darkness Man book
The third volume of Deke Leonard's witty autobiographical series of books begins in 1977 as Welsh Prog legends Man have imploded and Deke is fighting to resurrect his solo career.
 
Follow Deke's titanic struggle as he stalks the mean streets of LA, searching for the seedy underbelly of the American Dream. Thrill to his ruthless gang warfare with London's criminal underworld and rejoice as he makes Smokey Robinson laugh and Phil Lynott cringe before painting the town red with Tina Turner.
 
The inevitable reunion with Man sees the band criss-crossing Europe as they battle to reclaim their status as one of the world's leading acid rock bands. While on tour, Deke gives guitar lessons to Alvin Lee, crosses swords with Wishbone Ash and lectures Eric Burdon on stagecraft.
