From the jumping rock and blues joints of the 1950s to Woodstock and beyond, Where Are You Now, Bo Diddley? takes a close look at forty-seven musicians whose unique contributions to their thrilling era will never be forgotten. For as we sang their songs, we also preserved a piece of our own personal history along with each tune. But where are they now? How do they feel about their success? How have their lives changed? Now, in this fun-filled, candid, and compelling collection of interviews, acclaimed journalist and author Edward Kiersh talks with each musician, reconstructing their triumphs and defeats, the road to gold and the path to obscurity. Here are the victories over incredible odds, and the struggles with drugs and booze and runaway fame—a fame that, in some cases, ran completely out of steam. But always, the humor, the idealism, the optimism that is the underlying key to success in the music business, as well as in life, shines through. Packed with fabulous photos, Where Are You Now, Bo Diddley? takes readers on a vivid, intoxicating nostalgia trip, giving us an important part of our musical past from the lips of the men and women who made it history.
