What happens when nobody recognizes your genius but yourself?
What happens when the music career you always dreamed of never
really materializes? What happens when you get a publishing
deal at 17 but you can’t come up with the goods? What
happens when you smoke so much dope that you can’t remember
much of the past few decades? What happens when showbusiness
is all that you know, even if you’ve only ever been in
cover bands? What happens when the plastic surgery operation
you have on your face goes horribly wrong? Meet Dave Wilder.
