Old songs are like old friends. They’ve brought us joy and comfort, made us laugh or brought tears to our eyes, inspired us to think and reflect. But while radio, CDs and downloads preserve those songs as we remember them when we first heard them, what of the talented people who composed and performed those old favorites? What has become of them?
Marti Smiley Childs and Jeff March took the time to find the answers and they’ll share what they learned at a special event sponsored by The Avid Reader but held at Sudwerk on Sunday, September 18 at 1:30 p.m. Learn about the lives of more than two dozen performers profiled in Where Have All the Pop Stars Gone? the new book by EditPros co-owners Childs and March. They will reveal fascinating behind-the-scenes glimpses into the lives of these creative, talented people.
Where Have All the Pop Stars Gone? chronicles the lives of The Kingston Trio, The Association, Herman’s Hermits, Bobby Vee, Chris Montez, The Zombies and The Spiral Starecase through conversations with those performers, as well as producers, managers and family members.
