🎵🎶 “If they asked me, I could write a book…” 🎶🎵
C’mon now – everybody’s doing it!! (heck, WE even did it a few decades ago!)
I just finished reading Randy Rainbow’s memoir PLAYING WITH MYSELF – and it’s pretty much what you might expect: about as saucy and irreverent as he is. No huge revelations, nothing too surprising about his story; essentially he works his ass off to create his YouTube musical commentaries and is having the time of his life doing so.
I confess I got a lot more from reading Paul Evans’ HAPPY-GO-LUCKY ME – in part because Paul has had a longer and much more dimensional career, and also because we’ve had the pleasure of working with him and being friends for over 40 years.
There are any number of coaches out there who can guide an author on how (and WHY! ) to construct, edit, publish and promote their books. And I believe that while not everyone needs to tell their story in printed form, ALL of our stories are valid and worth the telling. Though it’s none of my business, I badger a few friends on a regular basis to get crackin’ on their memoirs – mainly because I want to re-savor their adventures, but also because, as my grandpa (and Hank Williams!) always said, “none of us are gettin’ out of this alive!” Let “the world discover” your story while you’re still here to set the record straight!

When is your memoir coming out? All you need to do is collate all of the many interesting stories you’ve shared on this blog.
I need to get to work on mine, but I’m too busy writing stuff. Sometimes it’s more fun to make stuff up, as opposed to “you can’t make this stuff up!”

WILD!! Can’t wait to read the stuff you make up, Dave – as well as all about your “real” life! ❤️
