The Republic of Rock 'n' Roll - The Roaring 80s from Curtis to Cobain is a fascinating musical journey through 1980s pop culture, as seen through the eyes of pop culture expert Kim Clarke Champniss. The ebook is packed with trivia and photographs, and captures the history, energy, music and colour of a pivotal decade. It also tells the real life story of one man trying to make a living in the mercurial music industry during a revolutionary period. The story starts off in Vancouver when KCC (as he is known) was an influential New Wave night club deejay, and follows him through the decade as he progresses to become a band manager of one of Canada's pioneer electronic bands (Images In Vogue), and then a MuchMusic veejay traveling the world reporting on rock 'n' roll.
