     BOOK REVIEWS

​    

Tony Renzoni has written a very thoughtful and well-researched tribute to the artists of Connecticut, and we are proud to have Gene included among them.

—Lynne Pitney, wife of Gene Pitney 

An informative and entertaining musical journey through Connecticut’s place in rock and roll history, including the beautiful doo-wop song “In the Still of the Night” by the Five Satins, the Playmates’ novelty car tune “Beep Beep” and the creative cover of “Ding Dong! The Witch Is Dead” by the Fifth Estate. Tony Renzoni also highlights several established artists who achieved latter-day success after relocating to the state, including Meat Loaf with his number one comeback hit “I’d Do Anything for Love (But I Won’t Do That).”

—Warren Kurtz, contributing editor, Goldmine, the music collector’s magazine

Our Alice Cooper band recorded the Billion Dollars Babies album in a mansion in Greenwich. Over the years, there have been many great musicians from Connecticut, and the local scene is rich with good music. Tony Renzoni’s book captures all of that and more. Sit back and enjoy the ride.

Dennis Dunaway, hall of famer and co-founder of the Alice Cooper band

 

Rock ’n’ Roll music fans from coast to coast will connect to events in this book.

Strongly recommended!
Judith Fisher Freed, estate of Alan Freed
