The book recounts fascinating behind-the-scenes tales of the ups and downs of the concert business and encounters with artists such as Janis Joplin, Led Zeppelin, the Doors, and the Rolling Stones. Hard Days Hard Nights was named the 2014 Independent Book of the Year, was the Grand Prize Winner at the 2014 Great Midwest Book Festival, and was the Runner Up at the 2014 Southern California Book Festival.
