BY GAYE SHEATHER
Newcastle in the 1970s and 1980s was a powerhouse of rock with dozens of bands performing every night of the week in the city’s pubs and clubs. Rock This City is a personal account of the times, the bands and the venues by someone who was there to see icons such as DV8, Cold Chisel and The Heroes. From women rockers to the Star Hotel riot, author Gaye Sheather captures a time and a spirit that fuelled a city.
