New Chris Hillman Book "Time Between"

Just on the heels of having contributed a classic photo to newly released "The Greg Lake Anthology" comes the self-penned new book titled "Time Between" by Chris Hillman, the co-founder of the worldwide famous R&R HOF band, The Byrds. I am deeply honored to have contributed a timely photograph of Chris Hillman while on tour (above) from 1973 with Joe LaLa and Stephen Stills of Manassas in this captivating book. Hillman and The Byrds were the legendary folk-rock band known for the monster hits, "Mr. Tambourine Man"-"Turn! Turn! Turn!" and "Eight Miles High." In Hillman's journey he tells of living in Laurel Canyon in the 1960's to join forces with other musical counterparts such as, "The Flying Burrito Brothers," Stephen Stills's "Manassas," "The Souther-Hillman-Furray Band" and "The Desert Rose Band." In the book Hillman also shares his struggles of the ups-and-downs of the music business plus his long spiritual journey that led him to a place of deep faith. Nowadays, Chris Hillman lives in Ventura, CA with his wife Connie of 41 years and counting. The book is a must for all music lovers!

BMG Records Releases "Greg Lake Anthology"

BG Records has globally released the classic rock LP & CD masterwork titled "Greg Lake Anthology ~ A Musical Journey." The new release features the many highlights of this artist's great career including a deluxe LP compilation and 21-song collection of his choice music. Plus, a 27-page color booklet that includes original pictures from throughout his lengthy career. I am very honored to have contributed in this project while having one of my select photographs of Greg Lake while taken on tour from the early 1970's that is included in the booklet (the same photo as seen here on page 8 below was also featured in my book "The Rock Trenches").
Gregory Stuart Lake (1947-2016) gained prominence as a founding member of the progressive rock group King Crimson and also Emerson, Lake & Palmer (ELP). His key compositions included "Lucky Man"-"From The Beginning"-"C'est La Vie"-"Welcome Back My Friends" and "I Believe in Father Christmas." Also noted, in 1969 Greg Lake was the lead singer and bassist of King Crimson's most influential debut album "In The Court of the Crimson King" singing the title cut and "21st Century Schizoid Man." Those songs are included on this compilation as well. This collection of music and booklet of career photographs are definitely a must for all Greg Lake fans.
