I'm not really surprised. Most everything I've seen posted here deals with what the Band did on the ship with amazingly few details discussed about their day to day lives in the waking world.

Fairly tough stuff. Given 1912. Still, his grandson seems to be OK, and able to give an account. Frankly, I think he's lucky that his grandma was not in a relationship, and could decide to raise the child. It must have been really difficult.

I saw this book at a bookshop a few weeks ago and it appears to be one that is worthwhile in purchasing. It talks about each of the musician's lives and their background, unlike any other book I've seen.

I'll be going back to buy a copy soon.
