Insight Editions to publish Tribute: Cocker Power
September 7, 2019 § Leave a comment
I’m delighted to announce that Insight Editions, distributed by Simon & Shuster, will be publishing my new book, Tribute: Cocker Power. Now, the printing process begins! I’ve purchased a limited number to sell, myself, and you can receive one of these first copies, autographed, and hot off the press prior to the official book release in the Spring, 2020…
Joe Cocker and Leon Russell and all the musicians involved with both the 1970 Mad Dogs tour and the Tedeschi Trucks Band tribute concert will have more time in the sun due to the generosity of the over 100 musicians and crew who participated is this book through their stories and interviews over the past three years. Due to them, and to family, friends, patrons who have contributed to this labor of love –especially Dr. John Paddock, Ph.D, who approached me in 2016 and offered me the opportunity to create a serious book, voila – 340 pages, hardback, designed by the award winning designer, Michael Vanderbyl.
“When you look at this book you can see it is a labor of love. When you look at the photos, you get the sense that everyone really trusts and opens up to Linda and that she is really in it. A lot of times I notice photos of us and I think they’re nice but I think but they don’t capture the sense of the people as I know them, but when I look at all the images in this book – the ones of Kofi or Sue or the people that I know intimately — I really feel them. Linda captures the real, personal side of people — the vulnerable side. She goes for the authentic moments. Linda’s photos have real heart to them, a real warmth that I appreciate and am honestly moved by. I can’t wait to hold this book and dig into it when it’s out.” — Derek Trucks, 2019
So many images and stories could not be included in the 340 pages of this book, but I will share them when I do “book readings.” Some are better left out of print and only for sharing in person!
