EXCLUSIVE ZOOM TV INTERVIEW 

STEVE MARCH-TORMÉ is the son of legendary singer-songwriter Mel Tormé and the stepson of well-known actor/comedian Hal March, is a talented entertainer in his own right.  Since the late 1970s, he has been a successful singer, entertainer, recording artist, TV & radio host and has toured extensively worldwide to an ever-growing fan base. 
He’s adept at performing in a variety of musical genres, both live and in the studio, including jazz, pop, big band and with symphony orchestras.  He performed on occasion with his father, Mel, and sometimes performs tribute shows dedicated to Mel’s music.
Steve has written a brand new, original Christmas song entitled I Remember Christmastime.


It’s a beautiful, nostalgic, sentimental salute to fond remembrances of the Christmas season. Steve’s new Christmas song is released 76 years after Mel Torme co-wrote the iconic The Christmas Song (commonly subtitled as Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire), which became a huge holiday hit for Nat King Cole in 1946 and again in 1961.  The original 1946 recording was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame in 1974.  The song is the most performed Christmas song ever.

BOOK REVIEW

-By Literary Titan (5) STARS


The Rock Star Chroniclesby Ray Shasho, is a splendid book written by a music enthusiast who has poured their heart and soul into it. It’s a story of a boy who loved rock music, and his obsessive passion of it earned himself the name Rock Raymond. He went to school but instead was schooled in all matters of music while his peers were buried chin-deep in coursework. He then became a radio DJ and has now compiled a book on all interviews he held with Rock gods who raided the airwaves back in the 70s and 80s. It’s a compilation of interviews with outstanding vocalists, legendary guitarists and crazy drummers in the rock music scene. Each interview gives a reader an in-depth view into their personal lives and the philosophies that guide their lives which all serve to humanize these great icons. For readers who are old enough to call themselves baby boomers this book will bring old memories back to life. Millennials, on the other hand, may think of this book as a literal work of the Carpool Karaoke show. 

The Rock Star Chronicles is a book I didn’t know I was waiting for. To come across a book that will talk me into trying something new. One brave enough to incite me to venture into new frontiers. This book made me a believer- I am now a bona fide Rock and Roll music fan. 

Ray Shasho masterfully gets the interviewees talking. He smartly coaxes answers from them with crafty questions designed to get a story rolling out of them. The artists talk about diverse issues ranging from music, politics, and their social engagements. Having been on the music seen all his life, Ray Shasho knows the buttons to press, how to get them comfortable about talking about their lives. 

The book’s cover is befitting of its subject matter with the leather look offering a royal background to the golden letter print. It speaks to how high a level rock music holds in the pecking order- arguably, modern music as we know it has originated from blues and rock music.  The second noteworthy thing is the use of high-definition pictures to reference the musician being interviewed in every sub-chapter. This ensures that the book is for both original rock and roll lovers and aspiring new ones. Together is makes for a refreshing and consistently enjoyable read.

I recommend this book to rock music enthusiasts, aspiring musicians wondering what it takes and all readers curious to learn new things by going back in time.
