Derek and the Dominos Book Update: April 2017

It’s been a few months since my last book update on my website and now is a very good time to give another. In a couple of weeks I will be moving permanently to the United States and as a result I will be visiting a number of venues where Derek and the Dominos played on tour in 1970, including the great Fillmore East. Obviously the auditorium is no longer there but I cannot wait to see where it was and soak up the atmosphere. I’ll also be visiting a number of others in the North East including the Capitol Theatre in Port Chester and the Onondaga War Memorial in Syracuse, now the Oncenter War Memorial Arena.

On top of that I am very excited to announce that I have been invited to appear on a radio station in America to talk about my biography on Derek and the Dominos. The station is dedicating a whole show to Derek and the Dominos and I am honoured to have been invited on to talk about them. I will share more with everyone when I know exact broadcast dates and where you’ll be able to download it, as it will be in podcast form too.

As every day passes I know this book will be a game changer when it comes to Derek and the Dominos, as I can promise you no other book on the band has ever been this detailed, in-depth and focused. I cherish every day I spend writing and cannot begin to express my gratitude to all of the people I have interviewed so far.

And to all of the countless messages and comments I receive on a daily basis from people around the world, thank you. I know a lot of you are waiting patiently for this book, and let me tell you with great certainly, it will be well worth it.

Thank you, Tom

    Are you going to offering a presell of the book when you have a publishing date? I for one am very excited to read it as I’ve been following your posts for quite some time.
    Unfortunately, I didn’t get to see Derek when they were touring, but I followed the Allman Brothers since I first saw them on Feb. 11 in 1969 at the Fillmore East.

    Keep up the good work and welcome to America.
    In appreciation of your efforts,
    Neil Elsohn
