Tomorrow is February 29, leap day, an extra day of the year, what are you going to do with your extra day? Doors drummer John Densmore will be on Jim Ladd’s Sirius XM radio show Deep Tracks (channel 27) at 9 PM eastern time and will be on for an hour. The show will be rebroadcast at 10 PM.
Here’s an early alert on a book on the “27 Club” scheduled for a fall 2013 release. Jim Morrison will have a chapter as well as the other members of the 60’s Rock ‘n’ Roll trinity of Jim Morrison, Janis Joplin and Jimi Hendrix. There isn’t much information available about the book yet, including a title, so here’s the blurb in Publisher’s Weekly:
Ben Schafer at Da Capo took U.S. rights to Howard Sounes’s currently untitled book about the so-called ‘27 Club.’ Kate Lee at ICM brokered the deal for Gordon Wise at Curtis Brown UK, and Da Capo’s planning a fall 2013 publication. Sounes, who’s written biographies of Paul McCartney and Bob Dylan, will explore the stories of the six major rock legends who died at the age of 27: Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Jim Morrison, Brian Jones, Kurt Cobain and, the most recent addition to the list, Amy Winehouse.
