Daron's Guitar Chronicles

Sex, drugs, rock and roll, and coming out in the 1980s

Daron thought life would get easier after he got away from his parents’ house in New Jersey, thanks to a scholarship to music school in New England. But life is tough when there isn’t enough money to actually live on, you’re underage, and you don’t know where to turn. And is it the best thing that ever happened to you, or the worst, when you get your big break, but your homophobic father shows up on your doorstep? MTV, AIDS, and Reaganomics have all just arrived. What’s next?
