BOOK REVIEW

-By Literary Titan (5) STARS


The Rock Star Chronicles by 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.

 ON INTERVIEWING THE LEGENDS:

ROCK STARS & CELEBS


Neal Morse formed and played in many bands in his youth, learning and mastering several instruments along the way. In 1995, he wrote and recorded with his band Spock’s Beard The Light, an album based firmly in the then unfashionable progressive (‘prog’) rock genre. This album quickly became a modern prog classic and began to bring Neal and the band global recognition.


In 2000, he also joined forces with Mike Portnoy (Dream Theater), Peter Trewavas (Marillion) and RoineStolt (The Flower Kings) to form Transatlantic, a ‘prog rock supergroup’ that won further acclaim - and yet more fans - across the world. A second supergroup with Portnoy followed - Flying Colors – which also features Steve Morse (Deep Purple), Casey McPherson (Endochine), and Dave LaRue (Dixie Dregs), with whom he earned his first #1 international chart position. Forging out on his own in 2003, Neal has made a series of ground-breaking albums, including the widely acclaimed Testimony and Sola Scriptura.
In 2015 he formed The Neal Morse Band, featuring long-time collaborators Mike Portnoy (drums) and Randy George (bass), as well as Bill Hubauer (keyboards) and Eric Gillette (guitar). The band’s first album - The Grand Experiment–showed both a freshness and maturity that was further developed in 2016’s The Similitude Of A Dream. 
Neal Morse’s latest releases are Innocence and Danger by The Neal Morse Band, The Absolute Universe by Transatlantic and most recent release Troika by D’Virgilio, Morse & Jennings.
