Richard Thompson came of age at an extraordinary moment in British culture. It was 1967 and popular music was reflecting a wide range of influences. In the midst of this musical awakening, eighteen-year-old guitarist Thompson co-founded legendary folk rock group Fairport Convention and helped them to invent a new genre of music. Going back to his childhood and reflecting on this heady period of personal creative intensity, Thompson details life on the road, his relationship with bandmate Sandy Denny, playing alongside Jimi Hendrix and Nick Drake, a devastating car crash, his partnership with his ex-wife Linda, and his personal spiritual journey from esoteric bookshops to extraordinary meetings with saints in Morocco.
