Three Music Biographies Presented by Jeter, Granda & Silver
1 Feb 2013
On Friday, February 1, 7pm at Malaprop's Bookstore/Cafe, three authors will present biographies of important musicians and music industry leaders. John Jeter is the author of Rockin’ a Hard Place, a memoir of his journey from burnt-out journalist to promoter and “misfit music club owner.” Rockin’ a Hard Place is “a uniquely and skillfully told, ultimately inspiring look at an until-now unexplored side of the music business," says Peter Cooper of The Tennessean. Michael Supe Granda presents his book, It Shined: the Saga of the Ozark Mountain Daredevils, an account of the Missourian band Ozark Mountain Daredevils, of which Supe was the bassist. The book follows the band in and out of the spotlight, from top of the charts to the bottom of the barrel. Author of Backward-Facing Man, Don Silver returns with Clive, a portrait of historic record man Clive Davis and chronicle of a turning point in popular American music. Clive is praised as “Totally compelling from the very start" by musician Rosanne Cash. The event will be followed by a booksigning.
This event is free and open to the public.
