Book of the Month
Each month, we select a brand new book that we love so much that we guarantee you'll love it too—and if you don't, we'll give you your money back. This month we're recommending What Makes the Monkey Dance: The Life And Music Of Chuck Prophet And Green On Red by Stevie Simkin.
This could be subtitled How the West Was Won. Chuck Prophet is an SF legend via Nixon's Whittier and Los Angeles' Americana punk scene. The creator of many great records with Green on Red and his own solo work, the man has six degrees of separation with everyone who is anyone in the business. Read the book. Hear the music. The rest is history. —FS
