Facing The Music
by Clay Eals
What would life be like with death hanging over our heads?
Most of us push the prospect aside until the end of our days. Not Steve Goodman.
Diagnosed with a fatal disease at age 20, he managed to survive and thrive to write
an anthem of his generation and become what many considered the most galvanizing entertainer of his time. What lessons did
he learn and share with others while privately, then publicly, fending off leukemia for more than 15 years? The answers lie
in "Steve Goodman: Facing the Music."
biography, now in its second printing, is the comprehensive, untold story of a young man whose hilarious, touching and provocative
music — "City of New Orleans," "You Never Even Call Me by My Name," "Banana Republics," "A Dying Cub Fan’s Last
Request", "Go, Cubs, Go" and many more stellar songs — uplifted millions from the late 1960s to the early
1980s and continues to do so today.
The book features fresh interviews with more than 1,080 sources, including Arlo
Guthrie, John Prine, Steve Martin, Jimmy Buffett, Kris Kristofferson, Bonnie Raitt, Jackson Browne, Willie Nelson, Emmylou
Harris, Randy Newman, Paul Anka, David Allan Coe, Judy Collins, Tom Paxton, Pete Seeger, John Sebastian, Leo Kottke, Gordon
Lightfoot and Goodman's high-school classmate Hillary Rodham Clinton. Other interviewees include John Hartford, Phoebe
Snow, Jackie DeShannon, Marty Stuart, Maria Muldaur, Studs Terkel, Mimi Fariņa, Tom Rush, Bobby Bare, Carly Simon, Lily Tomlin,
Michael Smith, Fred & Ed Holstein, Janis Ian, Bryan Bowers, Martin Mull, Chad Mitchell, Rosanne Cash, David Amram, Samantha
Eggar, Tom Dundee, John McEuen, Jimmy Ibbotson, Jeff Hanna, Howard Armstrong, Jim Post, Carl Reiner, Doc Watson, Loudon Wainwright
III, Jo Mapes, Len Chandler, Buzzy Linhart and David Geffen.
Included with the book is a CD of 18 songs written after Steve's
death that pay tribute to him or mention him significantly, and one track of interview clips with Steve himself. The book's
second printing includes hundreds of little fixes, updates and additions, including 30 new photos, bringing the total number
of images to 575, all in the same 800 pages.
"Steve Goodman: Facing the Music" was published by ECW Press in mid-May, 2007. The
first printing is sold out, but the second printing may be purchased at this web site on the Online Store page.

Grandparents Rock !
The Grandparenting Guide for The Rock & Roll Generation - by Pat Burns

advice to the music of "our generation". The chapters are named after songs from the past, and so they're likely to evoke
an emotional response within the reader's heart.
Small and compact in size, this book is designed to fit into your
briefcase or purse and intended to be read on an hour-plus airplane flight. Most chapters will simply be fun and make you
laugh, while a couple of sections will explore pain and difficulty. Each chapter concludes with a brief overview of lessons
learned, called "Grandparenting Guidelines."
