Graham Forbes loved to play guitar, whether it was with local rock groups pillaging village halls or on the big stages of the world with the Incredible String Band. But, like so many others, he enjoyed the gigs, groupies, and booze too much. At 27, he found himself back in Glasgow, completely unemployable, with an empty bottle of tequila in his hand and a huge bank overdraft looming over his head. Realizing his mind was like an out-of-control fireworks display, Forbes noticed there were hills nearby and decided to go for a quiet walk. It was the beginning of a journey that would transform Forbes completely, taking him from singing songs for for line-dancers to building one of the most successful removal companies in Britain. Rock and Roll Mountains weaves its way through wild sex, drugs, and rock tours to glowing sunsets on some of the most beautiful summits in the world. It describes how Forbes used lessons learned clinging terrified to frozen ice faces to run his company and win his battle against the drink.
