"I look forward to the next installment in the author's memoirs. Beyond the interest in the iconic Tower Records and celebrity encounters, I want to know what happened next in the author's life, as his circumstances are left up in the air."
"I thoroughly enjoyed K.D. Sanders anecdotal account of the three years he spent working at Tower Records on the Sunset Strip in L.A. The author writes in an honest, relaxed and conversational style that reflects his carefree attitude and lifestyle."
A Homeless Musician Finds Employment at Tower Records....Music lovers will appreciate this great brief story "Where Did My Life go? A Towering Experience" authored by K.D. Sanders, who candidly recalled his employment at Tower Records on the Sunset Blvd. Strip While living in Los Angeles Sanders never made enough to rent an apartment, so he lived in his early 1960's Volkswagen Bus. Working at Tower records had an added bonus, many famous celebrities and musicians stopped by to pick up their favorite albums/CD's, and Sanders had many stories to tell about the musicians, the rich and famous; many were nice enough to talk and leave autographs for their music store fans.In a confessional style Sanders recalled how he not only worked at Tower Records, but survived homelessness for about 3 years. Sanders outlook and attitude was upbeat and encouraging, though he may have had a problem with alcohol. A journalist discovered his situation, and his story was featured in a local newspaper photo essay. While Sander's recalled leaving his band, he seemed to indulge his passion for music at mainly at the store; and was usually right 99% of the time in identifying famous celebrities coming into the store. The last part was sad, with the bankruptcy of Tower Records around 2003, also with another big loss, Sanders had little choice but to change with the times and unexpected circumstances, he is a gifted storyteller. ~ Many thanks to the author for the e-ARC for the purpose of review
