“Loved this book. It’s an incredibly well researched and an entertaining read on the life (so far) of one of our greatest musicians. Full of great stories and some brilliant photos too. Took me right back. A very enjoyable read. A worthy tribute to an incredible musician. The man’s a legend!! Great contributions throughout and definitely worth getting! Anyone with the slightest interest in music should get this book.”

“What a fitting tribute to such a fabulous musician! Once I started the book, I couldn’t put it down! It’s packed full of fabulous photographs and lots of entertaining contributions from Rob’s fellow musicians. A must read for every music fan! Paul and Rob should be very proud of this book. It brought back so many happy memories of the heady days when Rob was in The Plattermen. The sound they created together was fantastic and Rob is still creating fantastic music today. Well done for giving him the recognition he fully deserves!” 
Molly Elliman
“Brilliant read and what an amazing career Rob has had and thoroughly deserved to be recognised in this way. Rob has such a brilliant voice and reading this book brings back many memories how he has achieved such success. I would highly recommend this brilliant book to everyone who enjoys Rob’s music and also to everyone who enjoyed the Showband era up to the present day”

“Really loving this book. Learning loads about the legend that is Rob. A powerhouse of a voice with such a gentle soul. Very rare to meet a man who is as humble as he is talented. Cannot WAIT for the country to open back up again so we can all go shake our tail feathers again together. PS totally recommend the book!”

Dale Thomas
“This great book brings me back to the music I love, the country I love and the artist that I have admired ever since I met him. Rob Strong’s talent, voice, bass playing, great personality, kindness, goodness have all been captured by a great author in Paul Holland. Paul has missed nothing about Rob Strong and every bit of it is true. Read the book- you won’t be disappointed! Listen to his CDs and you will be blown away. The greatest Blues/Soul singer ever to come out of Ireland .”

"I really loved reading Rob’s amazing story and listening to his great CD. We met Rob and the band for the first time in 2013 in Kilkenny during our holidays (we are from Holland!): what an amazing voice and great musicians! Paul, you did a great job writing this book and we hope we can listen to Rob LIVE asap!!"
