Gala Book Launch Party for Sympathy for the Drummer: Why Charlie Watts Matters
Gala Book Launch Party for Sympathy for the Drummer: Why Charlie Watts Matters by Mike Edison Featuring Special Musical Guests The Lucille Balls! Booze, books, and lots of music!
Sympathy for the Drummer: Why Charlie Watts Matters by Mike Edison is both a gonzo rush—capturing the bristling energy of the Rolling Stones and the times in which they lived—and a wide-eyed reflection on why the Greatest Rock ‘n’ Roll Band in the World needed the world’s greatest rock ‘n’ roll drummer.
Author Mike Edison, himself a notorious raconteur and accomplished drummer, tells a tale of respect and satisfaction that goes far beyond drums, drumming, and the Rolling Stones, ripping apart the history of rock’n’roll, and celebrating sixty years of cultural upheaval. He tears the sheets off of the myths of music making, shredding the phonies and the frauds, and unifies the frayed edges of disco, punk, blues, country, soul, jazz, and R&B—the soundtrack of our lives.
Highly opinionated, fearless, and often hilarious, Sympathy for the Drummer: Why Charlie Watts Matters is as an unexpected treat for music fans and pop culture mavens, as edgy and ribald as the Rolling Stones at their finest, never losing sight of the sex and magic that puts the roll in the rock —the beat, that crazy beat!—and the man who drove the band, their true engine, the utterly irreplaceable Charlie Watts.
