ROCKIN' in ROLLING STONE: "Amazing vintage photos"
Rolling Stone has always done me proud, going back to reviews of my first and second books, GRATEFUL DEAD BOOK OF THE DEADHEADS (Wm. Morrow/HarperCollins, 1983) and THE ART OF ROCK: POSTERS FROM PRESLEY TO PUNK (Abbeville Press, 1987). Now, ROCKIN' has joined the party.
Jann Wenner, publisher of Rolling Stone, was sent a copy by Bob Merlis, our ace publicist. Wenner, a man not easily impressed--but very taken with ROCKIN', I'm told-- then gave it to Andy Greene, who e-mailed Merlis "Got it! Love it! Gonna review it!"
Sometimes it all comes together, and that's how people learn about your books.
