    Highly Recommended

    I have read this book a few times now and it's a funny story from start to finish, with lots of mystery and adventure for the old chaps in this book.

    A fun Read

    Fossils was a fun read and very informative about Southeast Asian history and landmarks. You can tell Robert A. Webster loves living in that area of the world. Each character is well defined and realistic. Getting to know the old men as well as the secondary characters was entertaining. Steve Baker is known for causing disruptions at Fossdyke Old Folks’ Home. He is a thorn in Mrs. Chew’s, known as the warden or Chewy by the residents, side because his daughter owns the home. So his eccentricities must be tolerated to a point. Things liven up around the home when new resident, Charles Clark, moves in with his piano. Steve quickly introduces Charles to Wayne and Elvin. Wayne plays the drums, is mostly deaf, and also writes music. Elvin plays an old double bass with the assistance of his small falsies. He lost a couple of fingers in the Navy several years ago and has fashioned himself with fake finger extensions so he can continue to play his double bass. Steve plays an old Fender Stratocaster and loves playing old Rock and Roll. It’s his idea to start a band. The problem is Charles only knows classical music. When Wayne reveals he writes music, he and Charles sit down to adapt Wayne’s pieces into music for their band. So they start playing their original music at a small bar down the road for fun. Kipper, a local DJ, records their music onto a disc and then submits it to a local contest. When things get out of control, Steve, being familiar with and longing to revisit the Philippines, decides the Fossils need to tour and hide out from British promoters there. Steve is happy to be back in his old stomping ground and hooks up with old friends in the area. The other men have a great time chasing women and partying all night long after playing a set at a local bar. Until one British journalist happens upon their trail in Cambodia. This imaginative story is a randy romp of debauchery and a unique read where you never know what is about to happen next.
