(above) Mike Clark in studio
The audio book version of Detroit Rock City hits today, and it was a cool trip.
I spent a few days recording it with Mike E Clark at his Electric Lab Recordings – north and south. We did a couple days at his place in Detroit, then moved north for a weekend to his compound/studio north of Saginaw.

I narrated the thing, all ten-plus hours, even though people told me what an ordeal it was and how difficult it could be. What happened was my agency sold the audio rights to Audible.com, which does many of the books on CD you see in the store. When the contract arrived, I looked it over and thought I’d like to hear who would be reading it. Pretty standard. Then I thought, ‘well, I can read and this might be fun.’ So I had a clause put in the contract that I be allowed to audition. A few weeks later, I made the grade, much to my surprise. It’s good, honest work, pays well, and I’m always up for work. It’s now here for download. Dig in.
