Now Available! Dan Hicks – I Scare Myself: A Memoir
Well, today is the day!
Dan’s book is officially out in the world!
This was a very special undertaking for him — he spent a couple of hours on the phone every Friday afternoon with the amazing writer Kristine McKenna sharing his life, stories and thoughts — a rare move for a very shy guy.
Kristine and I worked on putting it all together over the last year with the great guys at Jawbone Press in London — the memoir is in Dan’s original words — he wasn’t able to completely finish it before he got sick, but Kristine brings us fully to the present. It has 100 pictures and the most complete detailed DH discography on the planet! My thanks to Elvis Costello and Tommy LiPuma for their lovely words as well.
So, hope you all love it!
And, thanks to Dave Kaplan and Surfdog Records for the recent vinyl release I Feel Like Singin’ –Dave chose Dan’s faves from the Surfdog years and so happy to add that to his catalogue. http://smarturl.it/GL_Amazon
We will stay in touch and let you know about future DH archival projects — some great unreleased stuff hiding here in his studio at home in Mill Valley!
