Tony Orlando says of Simply Put! "This book is a guide to love, family and friendship that gives insights from one man's lifelong search for love, acceptance and laughter." He goes on to say "Johnny Mathis, David Bowie, Neil Diamond, and Dion are but a few icons who have recorded his thoughts and feelings, and I'm proud to say "yours truly" as well."
This humor filled pocket book is a compilation of poetry, lyrics and personal feelings from one of Rock and Roll's most prolific and legendary writers of the twentieth Century and today, Bob Feldman. You'll discover a spirited page turner filled with wise words from an Author, Songwriter and Recording Artist of more than 50 million No. #1 Records.
Bob's songs, with their heartfelt lyrics and melodies were born from his life experiences and relationships and have remained in the top 100 charts for 7 decades! Somewhere, someplace, sometime, anywhere in the world, a song written, produced, published or sung by Bob Feldman can be heard playing 24/7, 365 days of the year.
This book helps put a face to the anthems that are embedded in our hearts. The familiarity that the reader feels comes from knowing the author through his omnipresent music with titles like "My Boyfriend's Back," "Hang On Sloopy," and "I Want Candy". His tunes have become part of the soundtrack of our lives from radio, television and film on 45's and 33's, 8 track's, cassettes, CD's, DVD's and more.
Co-writer, consultant and confidant Craig-Strang Thompson says "Simply Put is a truthful, humorous, bittersweet, thought provoking collection of stories, poetry, and real feelings that will leave you wanting to know more about this fascinating and gifted man."
Imagine if you will; sitting next to him as he recalls his stories first-hand. An original Wurlitzer Jukebox plays on with over one hundred songs bearing his name. Gold and platinum record awards and autographed photos from iconic recording artists who have recorded his songs surround you. Feldman reveals his most personal experiences with you. Tales which have previously been shared with only two other people in his lifetime: Tony Orlando, a friend for more than sixty years who encouraged him to write this book, and Dane Braden, who actually gave him the title. Take a brief, but thoroughly satisfying journey through the heart and mind of a sensitive storyteller with a self-deprecating sense of humor and none of the braggadocio befitting a rock and roll icon.
