For those too young to have lived it, or too high to remember it…
Turn on, tune in, and ride along in the front car of the roller coaster life of Ted Myers, as he chases his dreams of rock stardom through the ‘60s, ‘70s and ‘80s. Although he never quite makes it, he has many wonderful—and not-so-wonderful—adventures, and rubs shoulders with some of the true icons of folk, rock, and pop culture, including Bob Dylan, James Taylor, The Who, Procol Harum, Joni Mitchell, Graham Nash, Van Morrison, Steely Dan, Chevy Chase, Timothy Leary and even Elvira, Mistress of the Dark.
What a fun ride. Not many punches pulled, and for that I’m thankful.
Bob Dubrow, DJ, WMBR radio, Boston
It is such a delight when someone opens a small window on what was going on in music back then… such an incredible time of creation… Ted Myers’ book on this ‘golden age’ of rock and roll music reveals just what it was like… enjoy, I did…
Graham Nash, founding member of The Hollies and Crosby, Stills and Nash
A raw and honest narrative of what it was like to be involved in the music scene (on both coasts) during the 60’s and 70’s. Ted Myers was “this close” to fame countless times, and very close to many of the singers, musicians and music business icons that you all know… Get this book. It’s not for the faint of heart, but I can attest to its honesty.

Having always been curious about what it must have been like trying to get successful in the music biz during the ’60’s,this book fairly leaped out at me. What struck me the most was Ted’s perseverance,all the while surrounded by so many instances of close calls that could easily have gone the other way, but usually ended up as disappointments. But it wasn’t all negative. A good part of the time, our boy Teddy was availing himself of pleasurable activity on several different levels other than just the musical. Be prepared for many instances, some good, maybe some not so much, which comprised the whole sinful saga he calls his life.
