The Ron Anthony Story Book (in Progress)

We’ve just celebrated Thanksgiving, 2008, and while we have many things to be grateful for, we also are concerned about the turmoil and suffering going on all over the world. Amidst all that, I’ve been trying to write a book of stories about the experiences I’ve had with a number of people in the world of entertainment. The people involved are mostly musicians, singers, actors, and comedians whom I’ve encountered in my more than fifty years in this wonderfully insane business. My friends, family and peers have been encouraging me to put these stories down, while these recollections are still clear in my mind. I will probably need permission from those who are still among us (many are passed on), but most of the comments are complimentary, funny, romantic and sometimes enlightening. Just to stir your interest, I’ll mention a few of the artist whom I’ll be writing about. Miles Davis, Bud Powell, Bob Hope, Charlton Heston, Sammy Cahn, Jimmy Van Heusen, Betty Comden, Frank Sinatra, (Sr.and Jr.) Bill Evans, Nelson Riddle, and Antonio Calos Jobim. I will be doing more blogs on the book and keep you appraised of it’s progress. At this time I do not have a title.
