Published by Vagabondage Press, EXPERIENCED: Rock Music Tales of Fact & Fiction explores the topsy-turvy world of rock 'n' roll as only fine literature can. Its 16 compelling narratives relate the lives of touring musicians and touring fans, label signings gone awry, the evolution of life as a roadie, or (in one case) a DJ with a serial killer for a caller. While the stories are unique to each writer, you’ll discover within them an experience that is universal. Some are fiction and some non-fiction, but they’re all true.

Holiday Shopping for Music Fans

When my brother and I first got in to rock music it made gift giving, for each other at least, a lot easier come Christmastime. My mom would drop us off at some mall to do our shopping and we'd soon migrate to the record store. There I'd suggest to my brother what album might look good wrapped under the tree, and he'd do likewise with me. Over the years the usual album occasionally became a ticket for an upcoming concert, including Grateful Dead New Year's Eve shows. Those were really good Christmases.

Since, I've found mix-tapes and CDs to be the perfect stocking stuffers. Many friends are into music to the same degree that I am, and always appreciate the gesture. This year, though, the perfect gift for diehard music fans is EXPERIENCED: Rock Music Tales of Fact & Fiction and I'm happy to have my name on the cover. Its compelling narratives are certain to be appreciated by music lovers of all stripes, while simultaneously cultivating their tastes in fine literature. The book makes a stronger lasting impression than a simple CD, and better yet, is more affordable than most albums you'll find in stores. Moreover, I think you'll find the books practically wrap themselves. By three and get one free at Amazon
