New Jersey has the coolest surprises!
Michael Rosenbloom, author of “When the Stars Were in Reach: The Who at Union Catholic High School – November 29, 1967” gave an amazing presentation at the Fanwood Library last night.
The short of the tale is that The Who performed at this NJ High School while they were big in England but not yet in the U.S. Union Catholic had them as a fundraiser. The warm-up act was a band called The Decoys. Donation: $2.50.
Can you imagine?!
Some people who attended the library event were actually at the show and shared their stories.
“When Stars Were in Reach” is available on Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/When-Stars-Were-In-Reach/dp/1482052636 and it has great reviews! I look forward to reading my copy!
I attended the book signing with my husband Dennis and our friends Paul and Mair met us there. And Pat DiNizio, of The Smithereens was in the audience! I introduced myself and got a photo. Then I met Michael Rosenbloom and his wife and got our book autographed.
I wish Michael all the best. If you have a chance to see this presentation — don’t pass it up!
After the presentation, my husband drove by the legendary Union Catholic High School. Ah, driving along the same road as The Who … long live rock!
