Description

Wonderful. Beautifully written. Upon occasion we have learned that talented writers of songs are also gifted writers of prose. Mr. Blackman is among them. Good stories lavishly and colorfully told. This "Moonlight" feels exactly right. Alan White, Hall of Fame DJ

Bruce Blackman is a fresh voice in the tradition of Southern storytellers. This work is as good as Willie Morris, Julia Reed, and Jerry Clower at their best. Storytellers are born not made, and Blackman is a master. The man can write a blue streak. I can't wait for the follow up. Dr. John Keating

Bruce Blackman recalls a life, a career and his shot at stardom in the most amusing way...great book filled with wonderful stories. I love the wit and candor. The stories about what happened on his journey create a funny, reflective account of one man's dream. Enjoy! Nick Mawson, editor, West Coast Magazine

Bruce is my new hero. I enjoyed this memoir because you learn what it took for Bruce to become the man and success that he is. A lot of hard lessons and hard work and real perseverance. It shows a different side to the music biz other than sex, drugs, and rock & roll. Kelley Anne Palenius, early reviewer

Bruce Blackman's writing style is a delight. The book begins with the story of his growing up in the 1950s South. It may be hard for a reader in 2018 to realize what a different world it was then, but Bruce makes you feel like you are there. I laughed out loud at some of the tales of his youth and his journey into the world of rock n' roll in the '60s & '70s, an incredible time in the history of music. Anyone interested in the classic rock era or pop music in general will really enjoy this book. Highly recommended! Dennis King, Island Time Radio - WBWC, Cleveland, Ohio

Bruce Blackman is a modern day Jean Shepherd with added Southern charm and wisdom - only better. Shepherd didn't write one of the best tunes of the '70s. Heather O'Brien, author of the Ties That Bind saga

This book is a fascinating read, one that'll have you laughing over some parts while blushing over some of the more racy dialogue. Loaded with Southern hospitality and charm, it's a fun and entertaining read. I particularly enjoyed the variety of artists that the band toured with, and the book opens with a great story that features Jeff Lynne and his band, Electric Light Orchestra. Years after the fact, the book will have you rooting for Blackman and the boys, and the feel-good song that IS "Moonlight Feels Right." Hmmmmm, it's probably time to pop that record on again. Steve Orchard, Results Broadcasting, Iron Mountain, Michigan

Blackman is a natural storyteller. The writing is compelling and the story is told with great character in the voice that's sometimes a cross of Will Rodgers and Waylon Jennings. This kid is going to be an overnight success. E.A Cook, author of three novels and a memoir entitled Faces Places and Pain, Carnies Tramps and Truths (vol. 1)

A wonderful read by any measure. It's all here ... all the emotion, all the intensity to create something mesmerizing, beautiful and lasting. Art doesn't happen in a vacuum, it happens in real life, and it isn't always pretty, and it isn't always nice or fair, but it is always real in Bruce's story. The highs and lows of the star maker machinery, unbound unmasked and heartfelt by a man of rare talent who lived it and lives it still. Jim Veal, early reviewer
