Sebastian Robertson

illustrated by Adam Gustavson

Canadian guitarist and songwriter Robbie Robertson is known mainly for his central role in the musical group the Band. But how did he become one of Rolling Stone' s top 100 guitarists of all time? Written by his son, Sebastian, this is the story of a rock-and-roll legend's journey through music, beginning when he was taught to play guitar at nine years old on a Native American reservation. Rock and Roll Highway is the story of a young person's passion, drive, and determination to follow his dream.

Like his father Robbie,Sebastian Robertson is a musician and accomplished songwriter. He has written many songs for major television series such as Felicity, Boston Public, Boston Common, and Sammy, and is on staff with MTV as a composer for non-scripted shows. Sebastian is the author of Rock and Roll Highway: The Robbie Robertson Story . He lives with his family in Los Angeles. Adam Gustavson is the award-winning illustrator of over twenty books for children, including Rock and Roll Highway by Sebastian Robertson, Just Kidding by Trudy Ludwig, Snow Day ! by Lester L. Laminack, and the Charlie Bumpers series by Bill Harley. Adam holds an MFA from the School of Visual Arts and teaches at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia. He lives in New Jersey with his family.
