The names of everyone who pre-orders printed will feature in the list of sponsors at the back of both versions of the book. You can also pre-order the book with ticket(s) to the London Launch Party and there is also the option to buy the book with a 'Goody Bag' with a Cotton Tote Bag and Bonus Extras - Value £10.00+ for just £5.00 on top of the book cost. This Crowdfunder is to cover the cost of the Book, The Launch Party and to raise money for the instillation of a Memorial Bench near Steve Peregrin Took's Grave in Kensal Green Cemetery in London.

Steve Took's life was interwoven with the Underground counter-culture of the area around Ladbroke Grove. He knew a wealth of musicians and influenced more people than you might imagine. This book is of interest to fans of Tyrannosaurus Rex and underground Musicians including, but not exclusive to, a number of Hawkwind members including Nik Turner and Lemmy, plus Twink, The Pink Fairies, Syd Barrett and many more.

As well as featuring the Story of Steve Took's Life there are a number of previously unseen and unpublished photos including live photographs of Tyrannosaurus Rex (with Marc Bolan), plus professional photographs taken by the late Keith Morris during the period 1972 to 1974 and previously unseen photographs taken by friends and family. Gig flyers and reviews, some not previously seen, are also included. Whatever your interest in the man described as too fragile for the music industry, strange and unique and a talented singer-songwriter, this is a Must Have Book.

Author Fee Warner says of her book:- "Before the book is printed, I'll be sending out proof copies to some of the people who knew Tooky well so they can tell me if I've got things wrong, and hopefully tell me the correct and hopefully expanded information."

A second biography will be published in the future by David Mantell. No further information is available at this time.
