An award-winning Salisbury film maker and photographer has written a book sharing his life story growing up with a passion for music.

Jamie Robertson has published "Music Measures Memories - The Diaries of a Melomaniac" - a book of two volumes set between the 1950s and 1990s.

Dotted with mini reviews of albums he bought and rock concerts he attended, volume one shares his "coming-of-age" story from the 1950s - the 1980s, including his first adventure to Australia before taking the Hippie Trail back to London to start his career in the film business.

Volume Two is set in the 80s and 90s, when Jamie flew to and from Australia so many times he earned the nickname "Boomerang". It describes how he had to learn life lessons from his numerous mistakes as well as learn how to cope with mental health issues.

On his website, Jamie said: "Music has motivated me, moved me and inspired me. It has been my constant travelling companion and most importantly it has been my safe place, especially when I have felt lonely or depressed."
