Jim Shelley & Book Of Kills

Another Big Day In Rock'n'Roll History

I'm close to wrapping up the third single in the BOK Singles Series. Insert is nearly done. I have to remix the three songs, but that'll go quickly. There are, after all, only three tracks in each mix! It's mainly a matter of getting the guitar situated in the mix. While the drums/bass track is in stereo, it's largely a mono affair that I can do little with since the drums and bass are irrevocably "joined". Singles should be mailed out Wednesday!

Another big day in rock'n'roll history...

The most important man in the history of rock'n'roll was born on this day in 1926. His name was Chuck Berry. Still is.

Paul McCartney played his first gig with the Quarry Men on this day in 1957. Supposedly, John Lennon helped Paul finish several of the songs Paul had written which they then played during their first show together, so this day also marks the start of the Lennon/McCartney songwriting team.

On this day in 1966, the Jimi Hendrix trio consisting of Hendrix, bassist Noel Redding, and (eternally underrated) drummer Mitchell Mitchell played their first gig together.

On this day in 1992, Jim Shelley completed his fifth album, THE HAUNTED LIFE. It was released thirteen days later on Halloween.
