Television news anchorman and longtime rock and roll aficionado Tom Zalaski has written the book that graying baby boomer rockers will find eye-opening, nostalgic and loads of fun!
Tom has compiled more than 100 stories about the bands, songs and rock events that will take you back to Ed Sullivan, Woodstock and the Top-40 and FM radio songs you grew up with - songs that still trip your rock and roll trigger.
THE STORIES: The night Janis died, The Max Yasgur you never knew, the Gimme Shelter miscarriage, the female rocker who was at Kent State University on that fateful day, Stevie Ray Vaughn's autopsy report, the irony of Marc Bolan's death, the connection between Lou Reed and the attempted assassination of a U.S. president, the rock legend who is buried 12 feet under, the Keith Moon-Cass Elliot connection plus the bands that declined to appear at Woodstock!
THE SONGS: Gimme Three Steps really happened! Who is Black Betty? Who is The Rooster? What is the Lunatic Fringe? The sad story behind Locomotion. The deaths that surrounded Summertime Blues, Dr. Love and The Three Stooges, Heart's angry hits, the Kinks and Coca Cola and the real life people behind Jet City Woman, Spoonman, Sundown and Fred Bear!
Classic Rock, Woodstock And The Bands That Saved Us From The Beatles is a fun read that you won't be able to put down!
