Lol...sure Todd, the past 20 years yawn...But Layla was smoking, Cream was smoking, and I thought there were a lot of smoking moments (and some boring ones) on the three Phil Collins produced albums in the 80s.

Yeah, "Layla" was great...up until the point Duane Allman started wailing away with the most atrocious display of slide guitar I've ever heard. It sounds like he's trying to find a note, and never gets there. Awful.

The Phil Collins-produced albums have a few good songs. I have Behind The Sun, which I picked up on the strength of the great "Forever Man", and Journeyman had some good stuff. But the rest of Clapton's stuff, aside from his work with John Mayall and Cream, leaves me cold. Booooring...

BUT going back to Glenn's book...I'm anxious to find out what's in it. Obviously I don't know what exactly is covered, but at the moment I can tell you I'm interested in finding out about the transition in Trapeze from a 5-piece to a 3-piece...the Play Me Out sessions...the periods when he shared residences with David Bowie and Gary Moore...the dark 80's...maybe his thoughts on his own recorded vocal work...lots of stuff.

I preordered this book over a year ago using the "Stormbringer" discount code and there was mention of a "special something secret" when using this code. Has this secret been leaked, yet?
Really looking forward to reading this book!

Found this on the FB site of the California Jam fan club:

Keith, Whatever the subject - it's a joy to read your posts. Guess Mrs. Thompson must have a field when you come home...
You have no hair??? Blimey, and I thought you were a Liverpoodlian...

Here's an anecdote from my archive:

Comment of the week (late 1974)

"German groupies are the most thorough ones" (Sorry, HIS words...)

David Coverdale taking stock after having toured with Deep Purple for one year

Guess Mr. Coverdale knows a thingy or two about that...

It's coming! I have a feeling the world will not be the same once I read this book! G is so brave and full of courage to tell his story so openly and honestly. The writing would have been a very cathartic experience for him - exposing so much of himself to us. I can't wait x

Pix of the book!!

I just used the QR code to go to the Foruli website and there are new pictures of the sets. I am so excited! I ordered the deluxe set and got a letter from Glenn a while back. I couldn't believe that he had taken the time to write it by hand. What a guy!

This book is gonna be great!

From the Rock News Desk:

http://rocknewsdesk.com/oneliners/one-liners-it-took-me-three-years-to-get-brutally-honest/1422/

I just wonder about the luxury edition and the paperback. Will they be two different versions with regard to the contents and to what extent?

The paperback will be available on October 15 from both, amazon.de and co.uk

EUR 17.99
GBP 14.95

Text will be the same, otherwise two different animals Pricing reflects the offerings and content differences... more at Foruli Publications... the paperback, to be published in October, will be from Jawbone Press... more as it's announced...
