The first-person narrator, born around 1950, is growing up in Sydney in the early 1960s. He finds it difficult to interact with other people and has a low self-esteem. After watching a rock music show on television he decides to buy an electric guitar and become a musician. He is sure this will make it easier for him to be respected by other people. After hearing a song by the Beatles in 1964 his mission is clear: He wants to be a rock star.
