biographer Tony Fletcher in Woodstock Mount Tremper’s (and Great Britain’s) Tony Fletcher tells rock stories. He has penned definitive or competing biographies of the Smiths, REM, Keith Moon, Echo and the Bunnymen, the Clash and more. He also tells rock stories with his occasional Catskills allstar cover band, the Catskill 45s. His storytelling habit began with the founding of a teen fanzine that went viral before we called it that. That ’zine (before we called them that), Jamming, was originally inspired by and devoted to the music of the Jam and the punk and New Wave revolution in the London of the ’70s. Fletcher tells his own story, synched to the musical and political upheaval of the ’70s, in his delightful 2013 memoir Boy about Town. Now Fletcher trains his lens back on
his adopted continent, returning with In the Midnight Hour: The Life & Soul of Wilson Pickett (Oxford University Press, January 2017). A compelling and essential figure in American music, Pickett’s music as well as his turbulent life give this veteran and deceptively breezy writer plenty to work with. Fletcher will read from In the Midnight Hour on Saturday, February 18 at 5 p.m. at the Golden Notebook, located at 29 Tinker Street in Woodstock.
