The guitarist has inked a deal with Genesis Publications to release How Can It Be? A Rock & Roll Diary, a series of entries from his personal journals which start in 1965, and were written during his early years as a member of The Birds.

Speaking of the tome, he says, "I suppose my own private world is in the diary. This diary shows what an amazing schedule I had. We'd be travelling the length and breadth of the country every day. With youth on our side, it was a continuing adventure.

"Our overspilling energy was enough to take care of work every night of the week. It was enough to chase the girls, enough to write songs, enough to rehearse and enough to travel. It was all go, all the time."

Only 1,965 copies will be released when it hits shelves in May (15).
