Baseball, Music, and a Writer...

From the Stephen King newsletter:

Stephen joined World Series Champion Boston Red Sox pitcher Bronson Arroyo on Bronson's album "Covering The Bases". The album, which includes various cover songs, was released on July 12. The album features many of the top musicians in music, including Kenny Aronoff (John Mellencamp), Leland Sklar (Phil Collins) and Mike Inez (Alice In Chains).

The album also features Red Sox players Johnny Damon, Kevin Youkilis and Lenny DiNardo, along with Red Sox General Manager Theo Epstein.

Stephen contributed additional lyrics and spoken word on the fourth track "Everlong". Check out Bronson's album at http://www.bronsonarroyo.com.

Amazon.com is celebrating its 10th Anniversary with a series of events including a Hall of Fame which features an excerpt from a novel in progress (the working title is currently Cell).

We do not have a publication date for this new novel at this time, but you can read the excerpt titled “The Pulse” here.

Woohoo! New SK! I've nearly worn my copy of Songs of Susannah to shreds.

Perhaps I missed something here...is this like the Shatner and Nimoy albums? Please say "Yes"!

mr g, SK is a musician too, but I've never heard him play. A while back he had a band with some other writers (Dave Barry?- I think, Amy Tan, and now I can't remember who else).

I have the CD of the Rock Bottom Remainders (King, Barry, Tan, Matt Groening and others) and King sings "Stand By Me."

I'll have to post the file on my music page tomorrow so you can hear it.
