He messed with James Brown’s perfect hair. He counted a pile of cash with Aretha Franklin in her hotel room. He ate popcorn with Leonard Cohen. He cured a dying sparrow with Joan Baez. He got bamboozled by Chuck Berry.

Kenny Weissberg followed the music his entire career. A disc jockey, critic, rock singer, bandleader, and concert promoter, he lived all his childhood dreams—some of which turned into nightmares.

Off My Rocker presents a rollicking, backstage look at the joys and painful realities of a life devoted to music. During his early years as a radio personality, Weissberg basks in the creative glow of the free-spirited, post-Woodstock era but later rebels against the soulless corporate takeover of the music he’s loved forever. Along the way, he detours to the dark side, succumbing to the greed, deceit, theft, and drugs that plague the entertainment industry.

In lively prose and vivid detail, Weissberg shares stories about the eccentric cast of characters who cross his path, including a spectacular array of showbiz legends. Equal parts spicy confessional and pop-culture adventure, with trenchant insights throughout, this page-turner of a memoir will stay with you long after the closing credits.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Fascinating! 23. September 2013
Von Jack Cassidy - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
The author tells his true story -- starting as a music-obsessed kid, he grows into a music-obsessed adult. There are incredible episodes from his career as a concert promoter, and his interactions with music icons over the years. This is one book I didn't want to end!

5.0 von 5 Sternen ROCK AND ROLL HISTORY COMES TO LIFE! 3. Oktober 2013
Von Howard Phillipus - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
2:16 AM Tuesday morning and I couldn't put the book down - what a great weekend read! Riveting, memorable, exhilarating and enlightening! No matter what anyone's taste in music this book is so well written and covers so many inside, behind the scene stories of artists from Aretha Franklin to Bonnie Raitt to (then) Roseanne Barr to Bill Murray and BB KING - that there is something for EVERYONE - and whether it sheds good light on your favorite artist or gives a revealing glimpse into the "devil" within other artists; one thing is for sure - there apparently was NEVER a dull moment in this authors Rock & Roll whirlwind of a life!

5.0 von 5 Sternen An epic read! 17. September 2013
Von Paul Barchilon - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
From harrowing tales of drug fueled mayhem, to the front lines of the 60's cultural and musical revolution, and the heart of the Boulder Music Scene in the 1970's, this tell-all bio puts you front and center at some of the most fascinating stories you will come across anywhere. Moving on from his early years, Weissberg's savvy chronicle charts the rise and fall of many famous musicians, and lets you know exactly which of your favorite artists are actually nightmares backstage - and which are saints. The behind the scenes stories from greats like Ray Charles, Aretha Franklin, Miles Davis, Chuck Berry, and Roy Orbison alone would make this book a great read, but the evolution of the author along the way is what really makes this book compelling. Anyone who loves music should read this book, you won't be able to put it down.

5.0 von 5 Sternen I know absolutely ZERO about the music industry... 8. Oktober 2013
Von Robert Masin - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
and not much about the artists themselves. I don't go to concerts. But it did not matter a bit. I LOVED "Off My Rocker."
Full disclosure: Kenny Weissberg and I grew up in the same New Jersey town (South Orange), and as youngsters we had to stick together in our daily arguments with the vile Yankee fans. (We were Giants/Willie Mays guys, natch). Kenny was always funny, incredibly quick-witted, and sharp as a tack. Tons of personality, and it comes across wonderfully in his book.
I was impressed with his candor throughout; he lets it all hang out for the reader.

Bottom line is that Kenny has a wildly interesting story to tell, and that's the way he tells it. You could sense how much fun he had writing "Rocker" much energy! Even the parts where he hangs out his dirty laundry, of which there is plenty. (When Kenny tells all, he tells ALL)!

Bottom line is that Kenny, whom I haven't seen in 47 years (!), does not seem to have changed a bit. He could have been a teacher, lawyer, doctor, etc., and his storytelling skills would have been the same. "Off My Rocker", for me (the non concert going, ignorant of the music industry guy), was a real page-turner. The more I read the bigger the smile on my face. And there was never a lull.

I strongly recommend "Off My Rocker." Kenny Weissberg has told a terrific story.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Brilliant Voice, Excellent Read. 23. September 2013
Von Lainie L. Click - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
OFF MY ROCKER is brilliant, richly intelligent, and
inventive. What a voice! We are internally listening to
Weissberg's music as we follow his iconic lifestyle.
Once you open OFF MY ROCKER, it is impossible to stop
rocking until it is finished.
An excellent read.
