NY Times best-selling author Ken Sharp is going all DIY on us with the upcoming release of his next book, Play On! Power Pop Heroes. Via his own website, Sharp is offering the 520-page book to the public for $39.97. The ordering period concludes this week––at the end of the day, November 14th. Sharp will then submit all orders for the book to the printer the following day.
His obsessively researched tome––the first in a three volume series––is the inside story of an influential genre whose fans are both passionate and persistent. Featuring a foreword by Eric Carmen of Raspberries, the book culls exclusive extended interviews with 20 artists that defined the sound, including members of the Beatles, the Who, the Kinks, the Beach Boys, the Byrds, the Hollies, the Dave Clark Five, the Zombies, Bee Gees, the Turtles, the Left Banke, Small Faces, the Move, Jeff Lynne, Raspberries, Badfinger, Big Star and others.
