On August 27, 2017, MTV will air its 34th Annual Video Music Awards or what we of the MTV generation affectionately refer to as the “VMAs.”  This year’s show will be hosted by Katy Perry and will feature performances by Miley Cyrus, Fifth Harmony and Kendrick Lamar, who is this year’s most nominated artist for his video, “Humble.” Host Katy Perry and artist/producer The Weeknd are tied for second place behind Lamar, each with five VMA nominations to their credit.

His upcoming novel, Bright Midnight (Highline Editions, November 9, 2016) takes readers on a journey with an aging rock journalist coming across explosive evidence behind the truth of the Myth of 27. His book transports us to a period in time saturated in mystery and modern American mythology. Much of the mystique of the wandering troubadour lives on in the souls of today’s aged rockers.
