Join us for Roaring Stories’ first live-streamed author event featuring Stuart Coupe – Paul Kelly’s new biographer and former manager, as well as a renowned music journalist. Written with the rock n roll legend’s blessing, and packed with never-before-told anecdotes and behind-the-scenes detail, PAUL KELLY is an honest and revealing must-read for fans and music-lovers alike.

The event will be hosted by popular ABC Radio host, Sunil Badami.

When: Wednesday 19 August, from 7pm
Where: Roaring Stories Facebook page

He is Australia’s best-loved singer, songwriter, author and poetic observer and though he has written his own stories, no one has captured the broader life and times of Paul Kelly – until now. Renowned music journalist, author and for many years Kelly’s manager, Stuart Coupe takes us from Kelly’s family life as the sixth of nine children in Adelaide to his life today. With Paul’s blessing and access to friends, family, band mates and musical collaborators, Coupe shows Paul’s evolution from a young man who only really picked up a guitar in his late teens, to an Australian music icon.
