Greg Kihn's RUBBER SOUL Now Available From Premier Digital Publishing
Premier Digital Publishing is proud to announce the publication of Rubber Soul by Rock 'N Roll legend Greg Kihn in print (ISBN 978-1-62467-094-7,$16.99) and eBook (ISBN 978-1-62467-093-0, $9.99). Greg Kihn continues to pioneer the rock thriller genre with Rubber Soul, an exhilarating ride through Beatlemania featuring The Beatles themselves. The idea for Rubber Soul originated from his interviews with Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, Pete Best, Yoko Ono, Patti Harrison, and Geoff Emerick. When asked where The Beatles found the rare American R&B 45's that constituted their early repertoire, Pete Best revealed that it was from Merchant Marines who carried the records back to Liverpool from America. From there, came the fictional Dust Bin Bob, a character who befriends The Beatles from their penniless early days and saves them from an assassination attempt in the Philippines during their world tour in 1966. Rubber Soul is a work of fiction with 100% historically accurate details. This fast paced plot, full of intrigue, also incorporates historically accurate facts as well as previously unpublished information about the Beatles' early years.
"I hope readers have as much fun reading this book as I did writing it. I fell in love with the characters, especially Dust Bin Bob, and they stayed with me long after I turned in the manuscript. I didn't want it to end," said Greg Kihn.
"Greg Kihn is a true pioneer of the rock thriller genre," commented Thomas Ellsworth, CEO of Premier Digital Publishing. "On the stage and between the pages he continues to thrill his fans with his unique style and voice."
Praise for Rubber Soul:
"Rubber Soul is a magical mystery tour de force by Greg Kihn, a rocker who obviously has a way with words as well as music. His imagined story about the Beatles is fast-moving, full of twists and tension, and musical nuggets and insights. Great story-telling set to a Fab-four beat." - Ben Fong Torres, former senior editor of Rolling Stone
"Rubber Soul captures what Rock-n-Roll is all about - and Greg Kihn would certainly know! This nearly-true story of the Beatles is pure magic and I couldn't turn the pages fast enough." - Eddie Money
"Greg Kihn is the most compelling author who ever had a top five singing career. Rubber Soul is a fantastic story by Greg, with an historical back beat. I urge you not to miss this." - Joan Jett
"I'm happy to report that Rubber Soul, the latest work by my pal Greg Kihn, has correct punctuation, complete sentences, even full paragraphs - some of the exact same literary devices that can be found in the greatest novels our culture has ever produced! It's also written in English, which happens to be one of my very favorite languages." - "Weird Al" Yankovic
"While the RIAA may not be able to certify Kihn's work with a gold disc, fans of Kihn and The Beatles, as well as those who long for the simpler yet magical time of the 1960's will thoroughly enjoy and fall in love with Rubber Soul. They certainly don't write 'em like this anymore." - Chris Shapiro, RetroPulse
"I've known Greg Kihn for decades and he's never ever run out of amazing tales, stories, and recollections. I never knew which ones were real, true, folk-lore, imagined, or of pipe dreams, Kihn-a-sized. It's all to his readers' benefit he writes fiction." - Rick Nielsen, Cheap Trick
"There's no one more qualified to write a rock-and-roll novel than Greg Kihn. He's the real deal and at his Kihntillating best in this book." - Guy Kawasaki, former chief evangelist of Apple
