About the Author

Jerry Fitzpatrick, a veteran bus driver in the entertainment touring industry, has compiled a valuable social history. He pulls no punches in telling his readers details about the music and musicians who changed our country -- of what goes on behind the scenes and of the sounds and behavior that altered a culture ready and eager for that change.

Fitzpatrick shares his observations in a conversational style laced with humor. Situations range from shocking to heart-warming, from Milli Vanilli to Barbara Mandrell. Through it all, Fitzpatrick shares his personal spiritual journey of redemption, forgiveness and grace. This journey is revealed through his stories of a life that led him from a troubled beginning, to his own experiences as a musician, and later his successful career on the road.

He has dared to capture the entertainment touring reality of the 20th century before it becomes a myth.
