United States/United Kingdom – July 26, 2011 – Vagabondage Press announces the release of rock & roll anthology “EXPERIENCED: Rock Music Tales of Fact & Fiction” on July 26th, 2011.
Cutting to the core truths of rock music culture, EXPERIENCED is among the first rock anthologies to explore rock music and culture from the inside-out. The book is edited by Roland Goity and John Ottey, and is illustrated by Kimy Martinez. Included are 16 stories by 16 writers, on topics such as touring musicians and touring fans. Label signings gone awry. A late-night DJ and a serial killer. The evolution of life as a roadie. These are stories unique to each writer; yet, you’ll discover within them an experience that is universal. Some are fiction and some non-fiction, but they’re all true.
EXPERIENCED features tales from James Greer, Fred De Vries, Timothy Weed, Brad Kava, Harold Jaffe, Scott Nicholson, Corey Mesler, Brian Goetz, Adam Moorad, Sean Ennis, Jim DeRogatis, J.T. Townley, Laurel Gilbert, Ed Hamilton, David Menconi, and Carl Peel.
“The tangent is where the real story begins in this raucous, raw-edged compilation limning the seamy underside of rock ‘n’ roll storytelling,” says Alina Simone, singer and author of You Must Go and Win.
“The stories and essays in EXPERIENCED are beautifully written, wise, and absurdly energetic. An amazing jam session of a book,” adds Michael Kardos, author of One Last Good Time
EXPERIENCED will be available at Amazon, Google Books, Barnes and Noble and other fine bookstores both brick and mortar and online in print and eReader format. eGalleys are available for review and Vagabondage Press welcomes your inquiries for interviews, guest posts and promotional giveaways.
