So, here's a quick recap of 2014 for me:
On the book front 2014 has been very productive with commercially published titles on ZZ Top, Iron Maiden and Bon Jovi; published by Soundcheck Books. I also had my first film biography published by John Blake: Matthew McConaughey – The Biography. I signed contracts for two more film books due in 2015. The first one – Martin Freeman – is available to pre-order on Amazon and is published next spring.
I launched a Createspace published series of music books called 'A Casual Guide...' with titles on Neal Schon, Richie Sambora, Bryan Adams and Rob Halford. The fifth title in the series is due in January 2015.
I wrote sleeve notes for the BGO reissues of albums by Russ Ballard, Beggars Opera, Dixie Dregs, James Gang, Legend, Kenny Loggins and Wet Willie.
My new website was launched in January and by December it had passed 10,000 unique hits. Not bad for a small time hack!
I don't go to as many gigs as I used to but I did manage to see Neil Young & Crazy Horse, Nine Inch Nails, Linkin Park, Slash, The Beards, The Who and Bryan Adams.
I'd say 2014 was a much better year than 2013, so here's hoping 2015 is even better!
