Book Fair Kick-Off with Steve Katz - Blood, Sweat, and My Rock ‘n’ Roll Years…


On paper Steve Katz’s career rivals almost every mega rock star from the 1960s’ and ’70’s. He has three Grammy Awards, three gold records, one platinum record, and one quadruple platinum platter (the second Blood, Sweat & Tears album), not to mention three gold singles with BS&T. All together, he has sold close to 29 million records. He had affairs with famous folk singers, partied with Elizabeth Taylor and Groucho Marx, dined with Rudolf Nureyev, conversed with Martin Luther King, Jr. and Tennessee Williams, hung out with Andy Warhol, jammed with everyone from Mose Allison to Jimi Hendrix, and was told to get a haircut by both Mickey Spillane and Danny Thomas. Set during the Greenwich Village folk/rock scene and behind closed doors on international tours and grueling studio sessions, this is the unlikely story of a rock star as nerd, nerd as rock star, a nice Jewish boy who got to sit at the cool kid’s table and score the hot chicks. Followed by dessert, coffee and book signing.
