The Zoom book launch of Rock God Complex: The Mickey Hunter Story by Tracey Iceton includes an author talk, reading and Q&A, with music performance by The Alex Fawcett Band.

The story
Crown & Kingdom embody, like no other band can, the soaring flights and deadly crash-landings of rock superstardom. Led by genius guitarist Mickey Hunter, they ruled the 1970s rock scene with phenomenal platinum-selling albums and scorching live performances that electrified fans. But as the group, particularly Hunter, surrendered to fame’s toxic excesses, C&K’s ultimate destruction was inevitable.

Now, 15 years after his song played out, Rock God Complex tells Hunter’s story in his words, revealing the turbulent truth of the man who was a god among guitarists.

Author Tracey Iceton’s unique relationship with the elusive Mickey Hunter granted her exclusive access to the guitarist’s story. This book is the result….
