Memoirs From The Road To Everywhere

The Road To Rock n Roll (Volume 1)

Memoirs From The Road To Everywhere Vol I The Road To Rock n Roll reads like a good road movie. It takes the reader through many changes of scene and situation. Author Sebastian Jaymes relates the story of his personal journey from childhood to fulfilling his lifelong yearning to “see the world on someone else’s dime.” Born the eldest of seven siblings in a large loving family, he begins the journey through childhood with an immigrant Grandmother’s arrival in America by way of an arranged marriage. It is a childhood filled with pleasant family memories growing up “where the suburbs end and the countryside begins.” In early adolescence the situation changes traumatically. Leaving Catholic School, he is forced to face harsher realities in the public school system. There he encounters the first in a lifetime of bullies, as well as the racial divide of the early 1960’s Civil Rights era. A not so special teacher in Jr High School, a darker individual, casts a negative light on his family life. But In Jr High years he also encounters two very special African American teachers, positive role models. It is by their inspiration that he blossoms. He also finds and cultivates passion and imagination through close friendships with like-minded individuals. “High School Hell” is an inner city high school in an urban setting. It is a “prison movie” in a school fraught with serious dangers and mistrust by teachers, students, and hired handlers alike. When High School ends abruptly he enters the workforce as a factory laborer. “It feels like a life sentence.” There he confronts the fact that he may die a bitter man in mundane sameness, never fulfilling his lifelong ambition to see the world. After a mental and spiritual rebirth, and through a twist of fate, his best friend becomes a famous Rock Star and generously points him toward the freedom he has always craved, leading to his first job as a Rock n Roll “equipment manager” for two top name bands at the dawn of the Rock n Roll Touring Industry. (“We weren’t even called roadies then”) Then flying high through the 1960’s counterculture, he pays his dues with an up and coming band on a full-tilt ride through the bush leagues until he lands in Los Angeles amid the top levels of the overall entertainment industry. Vol I is just the beginning of one person’s lifetime journey on a path through the suburbs and the inner city through Rock n Roll, then onward on a Road To Everywhere.

Sebastian Jaymes grew up on "The North Coast of America" on the Great Lakes, near Lake Erie.

At a very early age Jaymes decided he wanted to see the world, and did so first by exploring his home region. In the 1960's, at the age of nineteen, and through a twist of fate, he was able to realize that goal as a Roadie, then Tour Manager for two hit Rock n Roll bands that toured the U.S. "We weren't even called Roadies then. In those days we were called equipment managers."
He has organized shows on exotic islands, in Castles, Archaeological ruins, and other exotic and sometimes dangerous locales in Europe, Asia, Russia, the Middle East, the Caribbean, Alaska, and elsewhere around the world.

He has a passion for Archaeology and has visited ruins, on his own dime, around the world.
Jaymes currently lives in Southern California and writes books and screenplays.
