Publisher information:
HIGH NOTES is a collection of FUN stories. Seen through the eyes of an agent, a manager, a fan and a friend, these stories are the varied, true experiences of one man's coming of age in the music business from 1966 to 1981 ..... HIGH NOTES offers a broad look at the cultural era and focuses not on the glamour of the music business but on its more human and vulnerable side, as seen through the eyes of a twenty-something who adored music and was just getting his first taste of celebrity, big business, and the countercultural movement.
