Billy Thorpe - Sex And Drugs and Rock N Roll



Sex And Thugs And Rock`N`Roll: A Year in Kings Cross 1963-1964

written by Billy Thorpe

Billy Thorpe lives on as an Australian rock legend, but in 1963 he was a 17-year-old singer fresh out of Brisbane, who arrived in Sydney`s Kings Cross ready to crack the big time. Through his eyes we see the Cross at a unique moment in history, and Australia on the threshold of an astonishing new wave of youth culture.

For Billy, it`s a tantalising and dangerous new world and he soon finds his life turned upside-down by an erotic menage trois and a murder. And as if that`s not enough, he joins a group called the Aztecs and within 12 months they have a national No 1 hit.
