I was able to interview Jac Holzman for the Doors Examiner. He talks about The Doors, Elektra then and now! The Doors Examiner Interview: Jac Holzman.

Peace out people! I hope you enjoy it! It's pretty cool, I think.

Excellent! I hope people enjoy it! & that it gives a little insight into The Doors & how Jac Holzman operates and is still making it possible for new groups.

My amazon uk  pre-order book  "Becoming Elektra: The True Story of Jac Holzman's Visionary Record Label" has been delayed. Has anyone had the same in the US?

Yeah. They miss calculated getting the book from the publisher to the warehouse to Amazon. I got this from the publicity guy at Jawbone Press. the books should be hitting the warehouses this coming week and Amazon the week after or so. I think it should be a little quicker in the U.K. Jawbone is based there.

The Elektra 60 site is really cool & from Jac it sounds like they're going to be adding more cool stuff!

The book is really beautiful. I don't usually get all hyped about how a book looks but "BE" is excellent!

Jim

Note to John, maybe you should query Jawbone Press with your book! They put out really excellent books.

Becoming Elektra became available on Amazon today. A couple of weeks late but it's a pretty cool book. (if you like the review leave a helpful vote)

Peace out people!

Hi Helen & Stoned!

I'm going to the "Night to Remember" Nashville's abt 500 miles from me but things worked out well, & they have asked me to read during the program so that's cool. I wanted to videotape my portion but due to some technical things I can't, but hopefully I'll have some pics & I'll write an article on it, probably Monday.

Thank you Stoned for subscribing! I appreciate it! It's the best way to get the articles! I'm glad people like the articles I try to find a variety of things to write about. I seem to go through streaks of subjects but in the end it all evens out. Everybody tell your friends to subscribe!

Thanks for reading!
