    Memoirs of a musician's formative years...

    I recently completed a first reading of the new autobiographical etching by fellow musician Clive Hay, largely set in the context of the pre-Mandela South African Defense Force. With many similar experiences from that era of my own, I found it easy to relate to the settings and flavours of the work and, accordingly, felt the motivation to comment briefly on its substance. Some might be inclined to describe the book as "niche", however, I believe the response of the human individual to various external influences and challenges which, inevitably, fall into recognizable categories, irrespective of the sources of the stimulae, is a universal theme. It is my view that this book will, if approached from that perspective, provide affirmation, for better or worse, to many readers, in respect of experiences they have had and choices they have made at a key developmental stage in life, namely, the latter teens/early twenties... Clive writes in an easy, conversational style which quickly draws the motivated reader into the world of the "second class citizen" - I encourage those with a wider literary palette than the tomes in the supermarket aisle typically offer, to give "Magirus" a whirl!

    Magirus

    I am so proud to have been a part of this book. It was so retrospective to read the experiences that we had, and yet so encouraging at the time, we all just wanted to do what we feel and do best. I think we accomplished a great amount of satisfaction amidst the circumstances, and joy in actually being being able to live our greatest passion, music. Music brought us together even in the harshest environment. Adolescence, egoism, arrogance, knowledge, life and maturing into adults; all this, brought into one. I would never had wanted it any other way. Thank you Clive for a most realistic sketch of our times in the Band, Magirus. I will always treasure these memories and pass them on...
