Greg Kihn - Rubber Soul

Thursday, December 5, 2013 - 6:00pm
Greg Kihn continues to pioneer the Rock Thriller Genre with Rubber Soul ($16.99), a murder mystery and an action packed ride through Beatlemania, featuring The Beatles themselves.

Dust Bin Bob runs a second hand shop at the Flea Market on Penny Lane. He has an extensive collection of American R&B singles that he gets from Merchant Marines returning from Baltimore and New York. The action starts when he befriends some blokes by the name of John, Paul, George, and Ringo and becomes their lifelong friend sharing the vinyl that will start a revolution. From then on, it's a rocket ride from the Beatles earliest days in Liverpool to six shows a night in Hamburg to the Cavern Club and to full-fledged Beatlemania. Along the way, Dust Bin Bob thwarts a plot by Marcos loyalists to assassinate the Beatles in Manila after they snub Imelda Marcos, blowing off a reception at the palace and narrowly avoiding an international incident. It could have happened!
 
NBC called Greg Kihn “Rock’s True Renaissance Man.”  His career stretches from the dawn of punk and indie rock to the discos of the 80’s to the glory days of MTV.  As a pioneer with the legendary Beserkley Records, he helped write the book on revolutionary west coast rock and roll.  He’s toured the world, had hit records, appeared on Saturday Night Live and American Bandstand, opened for the Rolling Stones, jammed with Bruce Springsteen, and so much more.
 
In the 90’s Greg turned his attention to writing fiction.  He published four novels, a handful of short stories in various anthologies, and edited a compilation of original fiction by famous musicians.  Horrow Show was nominated for the prestigious Bram Stoker Award for Best First Novel.  It was also in the 90’s that he began his radio career at a little classic rock station in San Jose, which grew to become the most powerful music station in Northern California.
