July 2, 2008 [Raleigh, NC] - Summer and music go hand in hand, whether you're listening to your favorite song poolside, or heading to the hottest summer music festival. On Lulu.com, you can explore your love of music with books that include a murder mystery from a music legend's widow and a definitive book on the era of progressive rock.
Travel back to the rock music scene of the late 1960s and early 1970s with Patricia Morrison in Ungrateful Dead: Murder at the Fillmore. Morrison, widow of the Doors' front man Jim Morrison, weaves her first-hand rock and roll experience into an exciting murder mystery. Morrison captures the people, music, and scene of the times.
The first book in The Rock & Roll Murders: The Rennie Stride Mysteries series, Ungrateful Dead follows amateur detective Rennie Stride as she witnesses murders at some of rock music's greatest venues like Whisky A Go-Go and the Fillmore, and the great rock festivals including Monterey Pop Festival, Woodstock and Isle of Wight.
Finding your rock and roll inspiration is easy at Lulu.com. "I had nine books published by traditional publishing houses before self-publishing with Lulu. But I had endless trouble and difficulty," says Morrison. "With Lulu, the books come out the way I want them to. And why shouldn't they? After all, they've got my name on them, not my editor's."
If reading Ungrateful Dead has you curious about the music of the 1970s, check out The Strawberry Bricks Guide to Progressive Rock. The book includes band histories, musical synopses and commentary on bands including Pink Floyd, The Who and Frank Zappa. The Strawberry Bricks Guide, covering the years of 1967-1979, offers a year by year a collection of album reviews, a bibliography, and an index listed by artist and a history of the era.
This summer and year round, look to Lulu.com to find books, music and more about your favorite music from yesterday and today.
