This book is a celebration of the impact and influence the Beatles have had on their generation and the one that followed, on both sides of the Atlantic. It contains interviews with major recording stars including the Rolling Stones, Sting, Billy Joel, Eagles, Steven Tyler, Brian Wilson, Jimmy Page, Elton John, DavidBowie and others who were witness to history. A Walk Down Abbey Road also contains interviews with the four Beatles.
What sets this book apart from all others is the wide variety of exclusive interviews. A Walk Down Abbey Road contains personal recollections and memories from major music personalities as told directly to the author. It is not designed to go head-to-head with any of the Beatles biographies or critiques, but to provide a multifaceted set of viewpoints. Over the years the author has worked with the individual members as well as Yoko Ono, Sean Lennon and Julian Lennon. His Beatles experience is firsthand.
The material is augmented with brief set ups and photos to compliment the interviews. Micky Dolenz, the drummer and lead vocalist with the rock band, The Monkees, has written the forward. Micky is currently touring with Mike Nesmith celebrating the music of The Monkees.

There's a revolution in broadcasting and it's not about where you are on the dial. It's digital. It's on demand. Your listeners are all over the world and they're hearing you when they want to. And it's where we help you tell the stories behind your stories.
Visual Podcasting is a method of podcast production that enhances audience connection through the visual enhancement of content. Most podcasting begins with the story and then adds visual content that matches the auditory in order to make it run on visual platforms such as YouTube and Facebook.
Visual Podcasting begins with the visual experience. The podcaster begins with the memorabilia of their life story: photos, film, video, writings, the ‘tools of their trade’ and lifelong collections. These are used to direct the outflows of their stories into coherent chunks, easily turned into podcast ‘snacks’ – easily digestible and shareable bites of the podcaster’s life story. Because the podcaster is focused on the visual, they speak in a more holistic manner, which transmits the big picture, even to those who are listening in typical podcast format, audio only. And DSP is there to guide you.
As podcasts become more familiar to broader audiences, they will seek them out even when they are not visually occupied, as with driving or exercising. These fans will not only be attracted to the medium of visual podcasts, but will be more willing to pay for subscriptions and membership in a like-minded community that preserves and promotes your legacy.
Your podcast is special, because it's about you. We help you present yourself in the most effective way for you - for your fans - for your career. Whether it's audio only, audio plus video, special guests, Classic Rock art backdrops, vintage interview material, production, or interview services, we're your one stop for podcasts that matter.
