The Book

Tim Lee’s new book I Saw a Dozen Faces … and I Rocked Them All: The Diary of a Never Was chronicles the journey of a rock ‘n roll lifer who was part of the national independent music scene of the 1980s.

It’s a story of perseverance, belief, disappointment, rock and roll rebirth, and, most of all, fun.

Cool Dog Sound announces the release of a new non-fiction book titled I Saw a Dozen Faces … and I Rocked Them All: Diary of a Never Was written by Tim Lee, a “new wave journeyman” who toured with the likes of Let’s Active, Swimming Pool Qs, and Marti Jones, as well as a founding member of the Windbreakers, Bark, Beat Temptation, and other projects.

In 300 pages, with over 50 photographs, plus extensive discography and index, Tim tells the story of a “never was” who did it anyway: climbed in the van, drove the miles, loaded the gear, slept on the floors, counted the pennies. 

All for that brief hour or so on stage that made it worth the effort.

This book will be available in stores and online on November 5, 2021.
