“Rock ‘n’ Roll Fantasy” is a center stage front row seat to the late seventies rock explosion seen through the eyes of rock journalist/radio host, Susan Masino.

Through her three year relationship with AC/DC roadie, Barry Taylor, she received dozens of phone calls and over thirty letters and postcards following their struggles from the inside-forging a bond with the band that still exists today. “Rock ’n’ Roll Fantasy” also features over sixty rock photos including AC/DC, Van Halen, Kiss, Todd Rundgren, David Bowie,Ted Nugent, and some never before published.
“For anyone interested in first hand stories about bands like AC/DC, Kiss, Ted Nugent, Van Halen, Cheap Trick (and many others) this is a must-have book! Tons of rare photos and interesting stories from rock journalist Susan Masino. I highly recommend this to anyone interested in reading about all the “behind the scenes” stories about some of the greatest bands ever. Excellent! Couldn’t stop reading it once I started!” -Fan Review on Amazon
