It’s a rough tale he tells here…sometimes funny…often sad…but you can sort of taste what it was like…a worthwhile read.—David Crosby
My band, Dr. Hook and the Medicine Show, went from playing a club in Palisades Park, New Jersey on Christmas Eve, 1971 for five very unhappy patrons who paid a dollar cover charge which meant fifty cents for each guy in the band to playing for 400,000 people in Cherry Hill, New Jersey where we arrived via helicoptor, all within eight months! We came from nowhere to have the number one record in the world, “Sylvia’s Mother,” by June, 1972. We were more surprised than everyone in the audience who was already listening to our song on the radio!
My book will take you back there and much more! Here is the untold (until now) story of the band. Find out how we traveled from town to town, country to country, all while trying not to lose our minds!
