I met KJ Knight last year via the telephone and internet. KJ was writing his autobiography and forwarded me his manuscript. I was one of the lucky few to read this cool book well in advance. It was published February 25, 2011.
The crazy thing was the fact that I couldn't share the book with anyone and I didn't even retell any of his stories! There are tons of exciting stories in "Knight Moves" too! But I kept it to myself. Now.... It is finally published and you can get a copy of it from my Amazon Store link below.
Knight Moves: The K J Knight Story recounts the fascinating tale of a miscreant young rock drummer growing up in the Motor City during the 1960s and 70s-a dynamic time period in rock and roll history.
This is also the story of a teenage boy whose family is ripped apart by his father's infidelity and the dissolution of his parent's marriage. As his home life quickly deteriorates, he immerses himself in his music, moving from one band to the next.
In this no-holds-barred book, author K J Knight describes his life and career, including his repeated acts of juvenile delinquency and the capricious nature of the music scene, not only in Detroit, but all across the country.
KJ is such a great guy! Look who is on his fabulous list!! OMG KJ told me he was going to add me to his thank you page and there it is... LOL love the red arrow? ;) So gang... plz go and buy KJ's book it is a WILD RIDE for sure.... You won't believe this guy's life! I couldn't believe that sweet guy talking to me on the phone was ALSO that wild rock drummer in this book! WOW
Also in the Kimmer mailbox with KJ's book was a super fine pair of autographed Zildjian drumsticks! KJ remembered my request to add his sticks to my ever growing collection of autographed rock drum sticks. KJ's sticks will be includedin a gallery of very fine rock drumsticks of my friends Johnny "Bee" Badanjek, Machinegun Thompson, Tino Gross, Steve Godoy, Tony Bojanic and many more... Thanks so much KJ!!! xxooK
