Bobby Hackney: Rock 'n' Roll Victims, The Story of a Band Called Death (Burlington)

Event date: 
Wednesday, November 4, 2015 - 7:00pm

Join Bobby Hackney for a talk, Q&A, and book signing for his new book, Rock 'n' Roll Victims, The Story of a Band Called Death.  If you've seen the documentary A Band Called Death, you'll love going deeper into the inspiring three-decade-long journey of the band that was playing Punk music five years before the term became associated with Rock 'n' Roll.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:  Bobby Hackney is the youngest of the three Hackney brothers who formed the Rock-N-Roll band Death in Detroit during the early seventies. Bassist, lyricist, songwriter, and lead singer for the band Death, Bobby began writing poetry, song lyrics, and short stories from an early age while growing up in Detroit. Graduating from Detroit’s Southeastern High School in 1975, and continuing his education at the University of Vermont in business and music during the eighties, Bobby has carefully and skillfully woven the details of his memory into the story that has become “Rock-N-Roll Victims The Story Of A Band Called Death.” Bobby continues to write, perform, and produce recordings. Look for more of Bobby Hackney’s writing, songs, and poetry coming in the near future. Visit Bobby online at and
