In 2014 I completed the biography of Rock And Roll Singer and pianist Mike Sanchez. I first met Mike about three years ago, and we discussed his biography. Things have moved on since then, and I have a publishing deal with Music Mentor books. Material is slowly coming together and the book is due out in early 2014, to celebrate Mike\\\'s 50th birthday.
Latest Update: May 2014. The book is now available! Amazon still havent sorted an image out and officially its not launched until 1st June, but it is definitely out there - got my copies yesterday. Mike has been opening for Jeff Beck on the UK leg of his world tour, and last week I found myself in the surreal position of signing flyers in the foyer of the Bridgewater Hall. Its all rock & roll this week too as we head to the 100 Club in London for the official launch, followed by a local launch at Level Two in Buxton on 1st June.
There have been a couple of pieces of publicity
Latest update: March 2014. The publisher has made his comments and they have been amended and sent back. A few queries around the timeline of The Rockets in the early 80s, but then its all done. Plenty of pictures selected - but still more to do in that area. Still on course to be published in May.
Latest update: January 2014. The book is in the final stage of editing, and will be around 90,000 words or 300-350 pages. The cover design has been done by ex Big Town Playboy and friend of Mike\\\'s Antonio Coni.
...and yes the Foreword has been written by Robert Plant!
