THIS ROCK CAN TALK: THE MUSICAL ADVENTURES OF ROCK CRITIC TURNED PRIVATE EAR BASIL GHOSTON is a rock ‘n’ roll comedy adventure set in today’s fast-paced music business.

Basil Ghoston writes the popular “Rock Grok” column for SoundProof magazine, bible of the biz. Basil turns rock detective — “private ear” — for a ruthless, visionary rock manager who will stop at nothing to make sure The Coolies, the new punk-rock sensation from China, make it to the top of the SoundProof charts.

Following the far-flung musical adventure to the end of the emotional diving board, Basil does a back flip into the wild side of the rock music business and discovers a more personal music filled with magic and power he never knew was there.

THIS ROCK CAN TALK presents a clear picture of the restless, sometimes shocking world of rock music, accurately reflecting the hectic music business as it really is — hazardous, dangerous, but always exciting.
