First chapter of Eckerman's book available on his website:
Turn it Up!http://www.turnitupbook.com/
By Ron Eckerman
A behind-the-scenes narrative of life in the mid-1970's with the band that defined Southern Rock, the iconic Lynyrd Skynyrd.
Plane crash survivor and former tour manager Ron Eckerman pours out his heart and soul in this memoir of life on the road with the band during their rise to international stardom, including the tragic plane crash that took the lives of singer and songwriter Ronnie Van Zant, guitarist Steve Gaines, back-up singer Cassie Gaines, and assistant tour manager Dean Kilpatrick
I just finished reading it and totally enjoyed the experience. Eckerman goes into great detail about the shows, the personalities, the challenges.
