Godfather Of Rock Coming To The Ewart Library – Dumfries

The Dumfries and Galloway Council run Ewart Library will host an evening with ‘The Godfather of Rock’ Tom Russell on Thursday 2 March at 7pm.

The ex-paratrooper, record shop owner and rock radio host Tom Russell will be sharing his memories from 35 years of rock music.
Tom Russell, who Ozzy Osborne describes as “the man who rocks Glasgow”, will be talking about his recently published autobiography, which is packed with tales of mischief in his younger years and some revelations about the big stars and their antics.
He’s interviewed and partied with some of the greatest rock bands, including Ozzy Osborne, Bon Jovi, Robert Plant, ACDC, Journey, Def Leppard, Aerosmith, Alterbridge and many more. Tom has also championed some of Scotland’s best rock bands.
Councillor Tom McAughtrie, Chairman of the Council’s Communities Committee said;
“This is great opportunity to attend a unique book event and spend an evening in the company of man with many great stories of rock music through the years.”
