This book is an access-all-areas account of Stuart Cable's life in music. It details his two journeys to rock superstardom, past and present. It explores his road to success as the drummer of the Stereophonics, from early rehearsals at a tiny community centre in an obscure Welsh mining village, to selling millions of records and playing stadiums worldwide as part of the famous Welsh rock trio. The author Jeff Collins travels with Stuart back to where it all started in Cwmaman as he reflects on the struggles of three Welsh lads trying to form a rock band, win over the London-based record companies and finally record and release four massive selling albums.The middle section of this book looks at how Stuart Cable and Kelly Jones fell out in a bitter row over the direction of the band. This prompted Cable to quit and Kelly to go to the press and claim the drummer had become unreliable and was fired. Stuart is still furious over the way the band wrongly painted his departure and wants to set the record straight. Having left the Stereophonics, Stuart Cable is relaunching his musical career with a new band, Killing For Company. Jeff Collins watched the drummer put together this new band, with 'exclusive' backstage access at the band's first headline gig. Stuart Cable's made it to the top once before. Can he make it a second time? Follow this fascinating journey in "Stuart Cable: From Cwmaman to the Stereophonics and Beyond".

MEDIA REVIEWS
"A great rock 'n' roll tale of living the dream . . . the rags to riches story of booze, success and an acrimonious split. The access-all-areas pieces backstage with Stuart and his new band read like a vivid fly-on-the-wall documentary."

--Steve Balasmo, The Storys
"Stuart's larger-than-life character eminently portrayed by Jeff Collins in this high-octane, gripping and candid account. Everything is delivered to the reader in a dramatic rock 'n' roll style."
