Ron Wood and the author in mid 1970's

Saturday, January 30, 2010


So I sent a query letter into several agents via e mail and received two rejections.
I sent in one chapter about Rod Stewart and a query letter to Jane Dystel.
She responded with a wonderfully nice letter of rejection.
I've never felt so good being rejected it was her use of and the power of her words.
She said I had done a wonderful job with the material and that I was qualified to write the book.
I felt great.
In future I will not send e mails. They are to easy to refuse. You have to let them read a chapter or two.
Thats my opinion.

So as I read some of the chapters I have written I realized that I suck at writing what I believe to be coherantly.
I'm not sure anyone would be able to follow my poor use of the English language.
I wish I'd listened more closely to my English teacher in school.
But as Popeye used to say "I am what I am".
So I'll continue in spite of myself.
The photo of Woody and me was taken in the mid 70's in Detroit. I think I was helping Ronny promote his solo album "I've got my own album to do" or it may have been during a tour he did with Rod Stewart before he joined the Stones.
Anyway, I liked the man a lot.

My 1st Blog

I have spent the last 2 years writing my memoir. It's about my 30 years in the music business.
I was a promoter for most of that time but I also worked in the Artist Developement department at Warner Brothers in the 1970's.
My problem is after completing this book, "Whats the Point".
Nothing that I wrote seems to have a point other than to tell stories of my life with these people.
Anyway, What shall I do about this?
I need some ideas.
I have written chapters about Rod Stewart, Richard Simmons, The Sex Pistols, The Ramones, Bob Marley the Rolling Stones and many others.
I suppose its a tell all book but its really all about my life.
I started this blog to ask for help from people smarter than me, which includes most every one. Thanks for listening.
