MUSIC INDUSTRY VETERAN RICK LEVY IS “HIGH IN THE MID-60S”

High in the Mid-’60s: How to Have a Fabulous Life in Music without Being Famous first started as Rick Levy’s journal (which began while touring as Peter Noone’s bandleader and tour manager) where he wrote about discovering his roots and what turned out to be a lifelong passion realized. Readers will discover High in the Mid ‘60s is a memoir, rock and roll everyman story, spiritual discovery, survival manual and an anecdotal treasure chest of life on the road. Rick went from being a member of The Limits, a garage band, to having a failed major label recording contract, to running an indie label, then going on to become one of the top managers and bandleaders in the 60s genre.

Divided into chronological sections, starting with his childhood, Rick shows that one can have a successful career in the music industry and still avoid the chaos that often comes with fame. One could say that this passion for music all started with Rick’s “Uncle” Elliot who presented him with the first Elvis Presley album, then not much later, a record player and tape recorder. Inspiration abounded, and Levy went on to work with notable pop rock artists, including Herman’s Hermits, Tommy Roe, Freddy Cannon, Jay & the Techniques, The Tokens and Bo Diddley. He is currently the manager and guitarist with Memphis legends, The Box Tops (inducted into the Memphis Music Hall of Fame 2018.)

Anyone wanting to know more about the business, especially with the music explosion that the 60s brought, will devour this entertaining memoir. Larry Klein, executive producer of Dick Clark Productions, American Music Awards and more says, Rick is one of those lucky people who has made his love his life…and his vocation…and it shows in the way he performs and respects the artists and music. And, he does it damn good!

From baby boomers to young artists and musicians…Levy chronicles the exciting explosive 60s era  from the INSIDE..

Now Rick can add author to his repertoire.

More words of Praise:

Rick always works hard to make my shows sound ‘top notch.’ He knows and loves the music… a true pro… one of the best! — Brian Beirne, concert promoter, legendary Los Angeles radio personality (KRTH).

The point is… Rick Levy knows people and people know Rick Levy! And, he enriches all of his friendships and associations with the wonderful opportunity to play and perform timeless music. This is Rick’s raison d’etre, and he lives it extremely successfully. — Bob Rush (BEAT MAGAZINE UK

There’s a wealth of wisdom, honesty, fun, sharp observations, great stories and good advice in these pages…a must read for top 40 era music lovers… — Dick Barley, nationally syndicated radio personality.

Rick… just finished your book. Enjoyed very much. You painted some very interesting pictures with your words. Good work, my friend. — Tommy Roe, American Pop Singer of numerous hits, including Sheila and Dizzy
