Blowin’ Like Hell - The William Clarke Story - a biography by Paul Barry is due out very shortly.
By Paul Barry.
"Blowin' Like Hell", The William Clarke Story, will be coming out in late August. I have been writing the book for the past 2+ years, and have interviewed over 50 musicians, friends and industry people.
It is a riveting and compelling story about one of the greatest harp players of all-time. I met Bill in 1983 when my band opened up for George 'Harmonica' Smith in St. Paul, MN and Bill was on tour with George. We became good friends and I lived with Bill and Jeannette and family in L.A. in 1985. He was a wonderful musician and man with a loving supportive wife and family. He faced many challenges and hardships over his lifetime, but persevered through determination and hard work to become a brilliant soulful player, vocalist, songwriter, bandleader and entertainer!
He should always be remembered and this book along with all his great recordings will help further his legacy.
ORDERING INFORMATION WILL BE FORTHCOMING IN THE COMING WEEKS WHEN I HAVE AN EXACT RELEASE DATE.
