Joe Byron comes to in a strange house with a woman he’s never met before. How he got there and why are the least of his problems. With the band in New York and a world tour due to begin, he’s knows he’s in a whole lot of trouble. Horrified, he races home to find out what happened.
But maybe it’s too late. He’s crossed the line one time too many. Wife Justine gives him an ultimatum. Give up the booze and the staying out all night and get some help. Stop the relentless slide into ill health and oblivion. After all, he’s got two small children to provide for and a mountain of debts to clear.
Joe has other ideas.
He’s a god.
He’s a legend.
He’s immortal for chrissake…
