Regarded by many as the Godfather of Newcastle rock music, Mark Tinson was a band member with Heroes, Rabbit, Swanee, Tex Pistols and Ted Mulry Gang. He has worked as record producer and sound engineer with some of the biggest names in Australian music and has been mentor to many Novocastrian musicians including Silverchair and The Screaming Jets.
In his autobiography Too Much Rock ‘n’ Roll. A Life in Music, Mark covers growing up in Maitland and provides a frank account of his musical accomplishments and failures. The book not only unfolds his musical past but the part he has played in the history of Newcastle’s and ultimately, Australia’s music industry.
