Editorial Reviews


  • Five Stars ***** - TJ Lima - GOODREADS
  • "If you've ever wondered what it was like opening for major rock stars or the details of the political nature of the music business, Kalikow has you covered." - Laurie Fanelli - 
  • "I would also highly recommend L. E. Kalikow's book to anyone even remotely interested in the music industry as well as music from the early days of rock 'n' roll. He tells story with precise themes and inspires the reader to be a part of the change we want to see in the music industry." - Kathleen Lieffers - HALFSTACK MAGAZINE ONLINE
