Zoom launch of Rock God Complex: The Mickey Hunter Story by Tracey Iceton
Fri 25 Sep 2020 to Fri 25 Sep 2020
Author talk, reading and Q&A with music performance by The Alex Fawcett Band

Crown & Kingdom embody, like no other band can, the soaring flights and deadly crash-landings of rock superstardom. Led by genius guitarist Mickey Hunter, they ruled the ’70s rock scene with phenomenal platinum-selling albums and scorching live performances that electrified fans.

But as the group, particularly Hunter, surrendered to fame’s toxic excesses, C&K’s ultimate destruction was inevitable.

Now, fifteen years after his song played out, Rock God Complex tells Hunter’s story in his words, revealing the turbulent truth of the man who was a god among guitarists.

Tracey Iceton is an author and creative writing tutor from Teesside with a PhD in creative writing from Northumbria University. She is the author of three previous books and many articles and short stories. A rock singer herself, her unique relationship with the elusive Mickey Hunter granted her exclusive access to the guitarist’s story. This book is the result.

Darlington-based Tracks Collective develop activities and services for local musicians and the community and, with funding from Darlington for Culture, are pleased to present The Alex Fawcett Band performing covers of Crown & Kingdom original tracks during this exciting launch.

Date: 25 September 2020, 7pm
