Beyond The Beatles …

Beyond The Beatles …

As many of you know, I spent a good portion of my career covering entertainment, and during that time I was fortunate enough to interview many talented performers, including three Beatles (George, Paul and Ringo), a bunch of movie and TV stars and just about a generation’s worth of the top performers in various popular music genres.

I have told many of the Beatles-related stories in Beatlefan magazine through the years.

But I have a lot of other tales from my years on the entertainment beat. Some of the stories about Southern music stars I interviewed (ranging from rock and new wave to r&b, country, gospel, and some who defy categorization) will show up in a book I’m writing that should be out later this year.

The subjects will include such names as Elvis, the Allman Brothers, Charlie Daniels, R.E.M., the B-52’s, Jerry Lee Lewis, Roy Orbison, Carl Perkins, Jimmy Buffett, Kenny Rogers, Doug Clark and the Hot Nuts, the Commodores, James Brown, Isaac Hayes, Lionel Richie, Dolly Parton, Tammy Wynette, Willie Nelson, Tanya Tucker, the Oak Ridge Boys, Amy Grant and many more.

The Beatles even make a few cameo appearances in it, too!

Anyone interested in receiving word when it’s ready and available for order can email me at Put “BOOK” in the subject line.
