AND THEN THEY RUINED EVERYTHING
BOOK TWO IN THE DEATH OF ROCK 'N' ROLL SERIES
A NOVEL BY DUNCAN MILNE
This is a story about time travel.
This is a story about rock ’n’ roll.
This is a story about life and art, and is now the second book in a series. Literature like life, music, art, or time travel, it doesn’t really matter where you start, just so long as you do. Welcome.
If you are starting here, this is a story in which two friends have discovered a means of traveling through time utilizing the video game Guitar Hero, coupled with a mixing table affectionately, maybe sardonically, called Louie Louie, a reference to the Kingsmen classic and Satan, the latter to whom DJs have often been compared.
Starting as a lark to attend gigs throughout time and space, the device allows Kenn Ramseyer and his best friend to enjoy a richer rock ’n’ roll experience. However, before long they discover that certain situations need a nudge to return to the correct path. Sometimes more than a nudge is required, such as when they have to kidnap a British prime minister to restore the natural order of things.
Although typically painfully awkward around women, both of the boys find themselves infatuated by different women at the end of the first novel. The real trouble begins there, which is where the story resumes.

What readers said about Duncan Milne’s first book:
The Death of Rock‘n’ Roll, The Impossibility of Time Travel...and Other Lies:
“If you dig Chuck Klosterman’s superb work in rock literature, if you felt a kinship with Cusack’s character in High Fidelity, or if you just want to grab a slice of pizza and travel through time to some great gigs, you’ll be highly entertained. Looking forward to the next one!”
“If you love a dry wit and share the author’s love of (good) music then this is the book of the year...
“What a great and delightful read... great job in developing the characters and piecing together the history of rock n roll...”
“It reminds me of Black Swan Green by David Mitchell. I recommend this to anyone who enjoys adventure, angst, or a fast paced narrative.”
“One man’s anthology of rock ‘n’ roll with fun characters that take you on their journey through society now and in the past. Keep pen and paper handy so that you can take notes about which songs you’ll want to download later!”
