Hanging with the Authors

I got to go to a book signing two weeks ago featuring two authors. One writer, Christopher Long, is a veteran writer from Satellite Bch, Fl.  and the other a brilliant author from Canada, Brent Jensen. Both of them write about their exploits in the rebellious world of Rock n Roll. Long’s book “C’MON” is an awesome read that tells of his journey within the inner circle of some of the biggest names in the music industry, his trials and tribulations and finally his rising up from the lowest point in his life. You can get in contact with Mr. Long on his facebook page https://www.facebook.com/#!/AuthorChristopherLong                             I highly recommend this book, it’s an incredible story.


 Author Brent Jensen’s book “No Sleep ‘Till Sudbury” is a fascinating tale of what it was like growing up as a heavy metal and hard rock fan back in the ‘80’s when you lived in a small town in Ontario. His observations and experiences are well told as his trek through the music world as a fan unfolds. He offers up a great outlook to some of the music that I never thought of as well as bring up names of bands that I forgot about such as Kick Axe. You can get in touch with Brent on facebook as well at https://www.facebook.com/#!/brent.jensen1   


The night was a blast. I got to hang with some cool people and make a few new friends as well. Shot some awesome pictures and had a few beers. I had to turn down a chance to tear up the town with Brent Jensen, Charles Knight and some others because of schoolwork. But, rest assured, the evening was well worth it. Now go check out these awesome books.


I have already read C'MON. Loved it. Will have to get No Sleep til Sudbury. Sounds great.
Awesome. I will check them out. Always love a good rock n roll book.
