Is Steve Katz a Rock Star?

On paper Steve Katz’s career rivals anyone’s except the 1960s’ and ’70’s biggest stars: the Monterey Pop Festival with the legendary Blues Project, Woodstock with Blood, Sweat & Tears, and even producing rock’s most celebrated speed addict, Lou Reed. There were world tours, and his résumé screams “Hall of Fame” — it won’t be long before BS&T are on that ballot. He has three Grammies (ten nominations), three Downbeat Reader’s Poll Awards, three gold records, one platinum record, and one quadruple platinum platter (the second Blood, Sweat & Tears album), not to mention three gold singles with BS&T. All together, he’s sold close to 29 million records. He had affairs with famous female folk singers, made love to Jim Morrison’s girlfriend Pam when Jim was drunk and abusive, partied with Elizabeth Taylor and Groucho Marx, dined with Rudolf Nureyev, conversed with Martin Luther King, Jr. and Tennessee Williams, hung out with Andy Warhol, jammed with everyone from Mose Allison to Jimi Hendrix, and was told to get a haircut by both Mickey Spillane and Danny Thomas. But his memoir is more Portnoy’s Complaint than the lurid party-with-your-pants-down memoir that has become the norm for rock ’n’ roll books. It’s an honest and personal account of a life at the edge of the spotlight—a privileged vantage point that earned him a bit more objectivity and earnest outrage than a lot of his colleagues, who were too far into the scene to lay any honest witness to it. Set during the Greenwich Village folk/rock scene, the Sixties’ most celebrated venues and concerts, and behind closed doors on international tours and grueling studio sessions, this is the unlikely story of a rock star as nerd, nerd as rock star, a nice Jewish boy who got to sit at the cool kid’s table and score the hot chicks.

From the ashes of a traumatic upbringing, forty-six-year-old Claire Fowler has forged an idyllic life in an affluent Rhode Island enclave with her college-sweetheart husband, Tim, and their ten-year-old daughter, Ally. Even the family dog is convinced he's arrived at the sweet spot of life. But things are about to change. When a last-minute business trip sends Claire to Cincinnati with her hypersexual subordinate, she is vexed but resigned. And when a vicious migraine sends her to a saggy hotel bed and him to the marketing conference in her place, she is first relieved and then thankful. Weeks later, upon discovering she's pregnant, Claire has no reason for concern. With the help of genetic counselors and fertility specialists, she and Tim have been striving for a miracle-sibling for Ally. And now they have one: a precious baby boy they name Owen. But all is not well, and soon Claire begins spotting alarming quirks in Owen's behavior that suggest he is stricken with Dukate Disease, the terminal illness that took her brother in 1979. If Claire is right and Owen is sick, other disturbing things may also be true. Things like: Claire has been raped; Owen is not Tim's son; and Owen is going to die. As the truth of Owen's conception emerges, Claire finds herself at the mercy of an unthinkable choice. Her decision-and its harrowing consequences-threaten not only her career and her marriage, but even her freedom.

Why I write books. In all these writings abides the revelation and the revealer of my time. In these writings resides a disclosure of my person by period, and some at least of a message of the gospel not only to me but also to my age. These are “rhema” revelation to my spirit, and soul of Him who governs the universe. It is through the stories of Jesus that I have strived to write what is deepest in me. It is noble evidence, which has never yet perhaps elaborated, as it deserves. I bring to this work the culture and thoughts of my time and added whatever my own inner soul in its quest to know God and his working could supply. May God bless these Words” He has given and revealed to me. This is Karen Marie A continuing of His Work in His Name shall be done. Thoughts out of many hearts should be revealed. Luke chapter 2 verse 35
