Derek and the Dominos Book Update: December 2016

As 2016 comes to an end I want to again thank everyone for their constant love and support as I write my biography on Derek and the Dominos. I’m stunned by the amount of people who have been in touch with me this year and as a result the amount of unseen live photos of the band has doubled compared to this time last year. I hope to include as many of them in my book as possible.

The book is closer than ever to being published but more work needs to be done. I’m a person that thrives on things needing to be perfect and I wouldn’t want to release the book early by cutting corners and not making it as good as it deserves to be. I’m pouring everything I have into the book and I’m so excited for everyone to read it. There’s never been a book on Derek and the Dominos as detailed and in-depth as the book I am writing.

Thank you to EVERYONE who follows my Facebook and Twitter pages, thank you for your constant interactions on posts and debates. You’re all amazing and this book is for YOU.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Did You See Derek And The Dominos At Any Of These Shows?

As you all know I am writing what will be the most in-depth biography on Derek and the Dominos ever written. It’s going well and every day that passes is a day closer to completion. As well as a biography the book will feature a wealth of information concerning the shows they played as a band, every single one of them, and I’m looking to talk to people who saw them at their shows. Even though I’ve spoken to hundreds and hundreds of people already I’m always looking to talk to more. So:

I’m looking to talk to people who attended the following Derek and the Dominos shows. For many of them I’ve already spoken to people but as with anything, the more the merrier! So if you did, or know anyone who did, please get in touch. Thank you very much and thank you for your ongoing support.

Derek and the Dominos Book Update: February 2015

I’ve been asked why I’m writing a book on Derek and the Dominos quite a lot, so I thought I’d start this entry by telling you all why. I see the band as one of the greatest bands of all time, and I know you do too. But a lot of casual music fans have never really heard of Derek and the Dominos. Sure, they may have heard of Layla but they associate the song to just Eric. More serious music fans may know of the Layla album in it’s entirety (and rightly so) but what about other areas of their career? The live shows for example have barely been covered at all in any great detail. Yes there’s a Fillmore East album but apart from that, there’s hardly anything been written on them. They are without a doubt one of the least covered bands in the history of music. There’s really no other way to say it.
