Default Just Skimmed Through STORMS

About 2 hours ago, Carol Ann Harris' book showed up on my doorstep. I think that it's probably a belated birthday present from my sister. For anyone who is interested, here's what I've learned so far, mind you, I have just skimmed through the book.




According to Carol Ann:
Lindsey was not too upset over his break up with Stevie
Carol Ann miscarried Lindsey's child
Lindsey twice asked Carol to marry him
Lindsey's music was always first in his life

I haven't read anything earth shattering, and I don't think that she portrays Lindsey as an abusive monster. There aren't a lot of pictures. They are all black and whites, and aren't the best quality, so I wouldn't buy this book for the pictures, if anyone was thinking about that. If anyone is interested, I can post a more complete review after I've read the book.

Yes, because their break-up was so amicable.

It makes one wonder, why there was such a hubbub about it being published. Rumor was that it was to have been published 10 years ago but was blocked.

It sounds pretty tame. Did anyone read that Sandra Haliburton book on Stevie? Pretty awful (IMO) I hope that this one is better. But like a dummy I pre-ordered it from Amazon to see the photos (I am such a guppie) and now I read that the photos aren't the best quality.

Damn you Carol Ann. Couldn't you have afforded a decent camera instead of an instamatic??? or a Polaroid Swinger?

Lindsey wasn't that upset about his breakup with STevie?? Is that why he STILL claims to not have closure? Those Tusk songs sound sort of bitter to me...........

Something doesn't add up Miss Carol Ann.

Mine shipped out on the 26th. I was coerced into buying this trash.

I didn't even realize there was a date set for release. Did you receive an advance copy?

1 - I find it interesting that her book is named after a Stevie song

2 - from the overview above, it seems like she's saying "Stevie blah blah blah, he loved me more. see? he asked me to marry him twice. we were really serious. I was even preggers with his child. see? I matter."

I'm going to have to agree. I think she's trying to romanticize the whole relationship.

Who in their right mind is going to believe that first thing, that he wasn't upset about the breakup? I mean, even if you don't give one iota about the whole soap opera behind the band, that's something that almost can't be denied. For one thing, I can clearly remember him saying that the 'spectre of Stevie disabled several long-term relationships'. And even Kristen says she knows that he hadn't been in a good relationship since Stevie.

Well, I think it will be more than 7 copies. Perhaps members of the band will buy it (and deny buying it), former roadies, associates, etc. Whether one wants to believe what is written in this book, unlike the Sandra book, this one was written by someone who actually knew the band, lived with them and traveled with them. She may have some axes to grind, but at least it's her own first hand account. I have heard the pictures in Carol Ann's book are of poor quality, but fans won't buy it solely for the pictures.

It won't be topping the bestseller list but I agree that a number of people will want to take a look at this book. There are very few accounts of this hugely successful era in American music so it is a record of that time by an insider. Plus if she mentions other bands and singers of the time too, they and their fans will want to read it.

If LB asked her to marry him not once but twice, why didn't it happen? She said on tv not so long ago she still loves him even after all this time and clearly has a need to go back to this period and relationship in her life so I can't see that she would have turned him down jmo

Make that 8 people, I pre-ordered it, too. It's to feed my FM information obsession.
