Jimmy "Guitar" Velvet isn't even a has-been; he's a never-was. After a short trip to the bottom of a river, Jimmy is about to undertake the adventure of a lifetime. The celestial bureaucracy ships him to Rock 'n Roll Heaven, where he meets the true icons of rock 'n roll - and learns that even "heaven" is relative. But, what impact can a small-timer like Jimmy make on the biggest stage in the universe?
Special bonus The full text of the short story "Lucky Man" is included as a free bonus. "Lucky Man" is the story of a Big Man on Campus returning for his 20th class reunion and about revenge served very cold.
What did you love best about Rock 'n Roll Heaven?
Three words: Perfection, Entertaining, and AWESOME. This book, in my opinion is how it's done. It was true to its title and storyline. It held my interest, not one boring moment. I received the audiobook free of charge in exchange for an unbiased review and I'm so glad I had the opportunity to listen to this.
What did you like best about this story?
This book was so well written I don't know where to start. The whole book was my favorite part. From beginning to end. I was moved when he caught up with his Uncle Bill. I love when he wrote his song with Buddy Holly; 'Edge of Heaven'. The words were so moving. And the concert, opening with a Hank Williams song was great! No spoilers. This is a must read.
Which character – as performed by Corey Snow – was your favorite?
Jimmy Guitar Velvet was most definitely my favorite character. Also, I have to say Janis. The description of her and and her persona were spot on. Buddy Holly was Jimmy's hero so him also. And Jim Morrison
If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
'Long Live Rock 'n Roll' or 'Edge of Heaven' because that was the song Jimmy wrote with Buddy.
Any additional comments?
Just wow! This was a well rounded story. Complete. True to itself. I also happen to be a fan of all the older rock 'n rollers. I listened to Shawn Inmon's author's note as well. I am now a fan. He is a terrific author. And Corey Snow is one of my favorite narrators. His narration flows so naturally and his voice is amazing
