Additionaly, all of the latest news about Head East is always found on this, their Official Site managed by Drew Willis, their great webmaster.
I am told Amazon.com is much faster at getting books out and many people have told me they have already received their copy.
Another method is to go to the local Barnes and Noble Booksellers store and place an order at the counter.
No books are on the store shelves just yet and I have been informed that downloads for the book will be available starting about the end of October. They may be downloaded then to ALL eBook readers. The date for this will be posted here ASAP.
DO NOT search for my name for the book because you will find “The Other Steve Huston” who is a famous painter and artist, and there is also a famous lawyer with the same name. Unless of course, you'd rather read about art and law instead of rock 'n roll.
THIS IS IMPORTANT: Many if not all of you are Facebook friends and as we all know, everybody has many other online friends who are not mutual friends with everybody else, so please share, share, and share this information so the word gets around to everybody we know.
AND DON’T FORGET to add your own comments to the share so your friends will pay attention to it – something as simple as “I think you will like this” would be a great comment to add!
The Publisher made the suggested retail price $24.95, but that doesn’t mean everybody will charge the same, so you should check the actual book price just to make sure they are the same at both places. It’s possible the price could be a little less at one place or the other. Amazon seems to have different prices and I do not know how that works so check it out! So far I have not been made aware of what the download price will be yet.
The book has 236 pages, 33 stories altogether, and 23 photographs, several in full color including the front and back covers.
AND ALSO PLEASE KNOW THIS: During the 2019 Head East Reunion Tour, if you bring your copy of my book to the show with you, I will be more than happy to sign it for you! 2019 is going to be a very special year, so for concert locations watch this website and head-east.com for complete information!
And THANKYOU EVERYONE, and please ENJOY!
Do not hesitate to tell me what you like and what you don't like. I can't exactly just "change what the book sez" but we can talk about it. But I hope you just enjoy it!
An Important Notice About the Book
Or, stealing from Bill Shakespear, call this
“To Buy or Not to Buy” (Wow, what a question!)
So far all that I have said about the book is that it is about Head East and also about my life, which is mostly told from the standpoint of being a founder of Head East and all of the wonderful adventures and incredible events from that experience.
So it is time to issue a blanket response to debunk the many, many “loaded messages” I have been receiving from so many people asking for details in advance to the book’s release. The best way to explain this is to generally explain what the book is, and start off with what it is not:
Head East A Labor of Love is not a tell-all rag designed to expose the trash on anybody, defame anybody’s reputation, present anyone in a shadowy shady light, or give cause for people to utter that time worn phrase, “Ah Ha, I thought so!”
It is also not the place where sadly, many folks kinda sorta secretly hope to see their names because they were involved in some way in a weird event with one or more of us. I have only named principal players such as the guys in the band, the road crew guys, some of the record company guys, et cetera. There just wasn’t room to name everybody we know.
The fact of this matter is, strange and weird things were commonplace around us all the time, everyday, no matter where we were, or what we were doing. It was just part of being out on the big time road and weird was just part of that. And you get used to it. As Glenn Frey said in some extremely apropos lyrics, “You just get numb.”
THAT SAID, this is what IT IS:
I like to tell stories. So much more important than just the telling of stories, I enjoy telling stories that are worth telling. When strange and weird things happen to you on a regular basis that perhaps never happen at all to most of the other people you will ever meet, those people seem to enjoy hearing about those things. So in this book, that’s what I have done. Trust me, you can’t make this stuff up.
The fabulous thing about these strange and weird things is they often are so funny that they not only border on, they often crossover into the absurd. Ridiculously absurd. Things that seem so obviously and wildly far off base, you suddenly realize. . .
that the runner is actually safe! Huh?
The Allman’s sang, “And the road goes on forever…” and it does. And so many times these things are so hilarious that tears are shed daily in their wake. And yes, there are also tears that come with the inevitable and occasional sadness that arises but thankfully, the up feelings for us always vastly outweighed the down.
These are stories that maybe some of you have heard before, but probably just a few. Most of you have heard none of them.
And it’s not a perfect book. There are a few mistakes sprinkled throughout so it is not “perfect” but then, neither am I. . . Or anyone else I know. This was written from the heart, not in the English comp class.
We weren’t a perfect band, but we sure had some fun! This book is about a lot of different things, but it is mostly about having fun.
