Charles recently gave an interview to Phil Aston of the excellent Now Spinning website in the UK. Take a read it has some insights on how I put the book together and what I think of newly remixed albums!
Total shock. Neil Peart has passed at age 67. From Rolling Stone: "The cause was brain cancer, which he had been quietly battling for three years, according to Elliot Mintz, a spokesperson for the Peart family. A representative for the band confirmed the news to Rolling Stone."
The third edition will be published via KDP, which is Amazon. While we could debate the merits of using Amazon, I can just offer that it offers ease of use on my part, and ease of purchase on yours - local availability AND shipping cost in US, Canada, UK, Germany, France, Spain, Italy and Japan. The books are printed "on demand" like all previous editions. The 3rd edition will be priced at USD $24.95, and an equivalent amount in the other regions.
The book is finished, now to figure out review copies, press, publicity, etc. Expected in late March.
