Here is my video update, and I’m talking about the book “Me, the Mob, and the Music” by Tommy James that I won in a contest from the radio show Vinyl from the CIUT Crypt!
Tommy James and The Shondells were one of the biggest groups of the 1960’s and their music is used today in many films and TV shows. Famous for such hits as “Mony Mony” and “Crimson and Clover,” Tommy James remains an active force in music today, and is an inspiration of all that was good about the Sixties. “Crimson and Clover” is one of my favourite songs of all time, and it still gives me chills to hear it! Fantastic music and timeless, innovative sounds that still are fresh!
Tommy was kind enough to offer a copy of his book as a prize to the radio show, and even autographed it to me! I can’t wait to read it, and will make another video with my thoughts about the book, so check back for that.
Here is a link to an archive of the stellar interview of Tommy James by DJ nico from Vinyl from the CIUT Crypt on September 17, 2011 in Toronto on 89.5FM (www.CIUT.fm): http://soundcloud.com/nicochelseagirl/tommy-james-interview
