NIGHT PEOPLE, Book 1 – Things We Lost in the Night: A Memoir of Love and Music in the 60s with Stark Naked and the Car Thieves by
NIGHT PEOPLE, an intimate, literary memoir, follows the first three, of six, years in the life of a young singer and three vocalist friends in a transformational journey as they strive for success in a coming-of-age music and romance-filled adventure in 1960-era California and Las Vegas.
As their fortunes rise, he and his rock&roll band are plunged into an adventure that will make them the model for Three Dog Night, take them to dangerous mob-run nightclubs, Las Vegas showrooms and backrooms, and famous Hollywood nightclubs, celebrity managers, famous recording studios, and passionate romance.
In this book everything Larry thinks he knows will be challenged, as he tries to adapt to a new life, a new companion and lover, and to the things he finds, and loses, in the tumultuous nights he now inhabits.
Night People was influenced by “Wild” by Cheryl Strayed, “The Wrecking Crew” by Kent Hartman, and “The Descendents” by Kaui Hart Hemmings
