Description

In a literary modern odyssey, an intimate memoir recalls the first three of six years in the life of a young singer and his midwestern friends as they strive for fame and fortune in a coming-of-age rock music- and romance-filled journey in 1960-era California and Las Vegas.

The most important things in Larry’s life in 1965 Indianapolis are his suddenly troubled marriage to his high school sweetheart and their two little boys, and his scattered-to-the-winds, singing group. When he is miraculously reunited with his vocalist friends in San Francisco, they barely survive their own clumsy transformation into a working nightclub band. He hasn't realized yet, that as the band improves, singing with his rock and roll band is plunging him headfirst into an incredible adventure that will make them the model for Three Dog Night, and take them into famous mob-run West Coast nightclubs, Las Vegas showrooms and backrooms, and Hollywood recording studios—or the sacrifice it will require.

It’s the 1960s: an era of great cultural, sexual, and musical change—and the draft. Larry's band finds itself scrambling to overcome, or at least live through, every obstacle in their path as they achieve hard-won successes. But in their rise, Larry discovers that everything he assumed he knew about life is being challenged, and he must adapt to a new life, and a new companion and lover, as he weaves his way through the things he finds, and loses, in the tumultuous nights.

A very entertaining and fabulous read. Provides an insight into the lives and workings of an up and coming rock band during the 60s. A very enjoyable read.

I thoroughly enjoyed this, thrill ride of a book. It takes us through a very interesting scenario, a woman plagued and tormented by her own inability to have a child is mysteriously raising one in secret. For each question presented comes answer which then leads to more questions. The questions become more disturbing as the book becomes impossible to put down

This is the true story of a man’s journey with his band Stark Naked And The Car Thieves . This band with the man Larry fought to get success in the sixties . The band did achieve some success but not liked Larry had dreamed of . Larry seemed to turn his words into a variety of feelings . I did really enjoy this book and hope the second part of Larry’s story is as interesting . I recommend .
