by Ray Shasho
Truths, Confessions & Wisdom from The Music Legends That Set Us Free
Ray Shasho’s latest book, Series One of ‘THE ROCK STAR CHRONICLES’ has provided the audience with truths, confessions, and wisdom from the legends of the music industry.
“From January 2010 through the present day, I’ve conducted over 1000 candid interviews with some of the greatest music legends of our time, says Ray Shasho.”
“I refused to simply write about the music and artists that influenced countless generations and millions of music fans worldwide, I brought the actual music legend to the reader.”
After reading each interview, it will seem as you’re the one chatting with your favorite rock hero. Even though their music lives on … the artists are vanishing and will soon be gone forever!
These recent and candid interviews include … life-changing events, band feuds that have lasted for decades, love affairs with bandmates, drug-induced stories, spirituality, metaphysical beliefs, Woodstock memories, Joplin and Hendrix tidbits, mafia owned record companies, untold stories about The Beatles, royalties issues, management and record company thieving and conniving, political views, conspiracy theories, humorous and tragic anecdotes, transitioning to Christianity and suicide.

WHERE HAVE ALL THE ROCK STARS GONE?
Rock and Roll, the Blues, and Jazz are America’s contribution to the art, so why are we not fighting to preserve our own musical legacy and culture?
Rooted from the early blues pioneers, the longevity of rock and roll is second to none. But strangely enough, those legendary rock heroes that we were so accustomed to hearing every time we turned on our radios had mysteriously vanished from the mainstream.
The music of the 1960’s, 70’s and even the 80’s was an important juncture in all of our lives. So many of us timeline life’s precious moments with the music we remember, when the music was so great, and when the music mattered.
Ray Shasho says, for more than a decade I’ve been on a Rock and Roll pilgrimage to help promote and save the greatest music the world has ever known.
