Sherry Carroll’s “Even Rock and Roll has Fairy Tales” NEW WEBPAGE SITE

Published June 16, 2017 by Sherry Carroll

“Sex, drugs and rock and roll, this book has it all. At times hilarious, at times heartbreaking, always passionate, crazy and chaotic, just like rock and roll itself. In this book, The Sherry Fairy will take you places you only dreamed of, as a young, impressionable girl who doesn’t know any better, grows from naive child to a grown up woman who certainly does know better, but is still brave enough and just crazy enough, to give it one more shot. I loved this book. Sherry got to do what I always dreamed of doing, loving and being loved by a larger than life rock god. After reading her story, I know I would never have been brave or strong enough for this life. I’m very glad I get to read Sherry’s adventures from the safety of my own home! If you haven’t read this book, do it. You won’t regret it

With the sounds of Rock and Roll and Sherry’s intoxicating laugh moving you through every memory–you’re sure to be captivated by this one-of-a-kind, episodic memoir.

“Even Rock and Roll has Fairy Tales: The Flight of the Shiny Happy Sherry Fairy” by Sherry Carroll is a coming of age memoir that the features love, humor, Rock and Roll, and a woman in love with life. Unlike many Rock and Roll memoirs, this one doesn’t start with specific ambitions that involve groupies, fame, and drugs. The fun, sexy, and outrageous, Sherry Carroll, begins by telling us how she once “bought a ticket on to ride on the `American Dream’, however, is willing to admit (pretty quickly) that it doesn’t quite work for her. After all, she can’t hide behind “owl-like schoolteacher glasses” much longer when there are tight, sparkling clothes to wear. She dreams of a life filled with Rock and Roll, men, shenanigans, and perhaps even a little bedazzling. Sure, Sherry has her fair share of men to tell stories about, but the most interesting and dynamic is Eric. He’s a character that, much like Sherry, is colorful and entertaining. While transcending the average healthy, functional relationship, Sherry and Eric have some good times and some Oscar-worthy verbal exchanges that are as unforgettable as her box of “useless crap” in the attic. This woman is ballsy and takes-no-prisoners when it comes to love and life.

Sherry Fairy’s dreams have the unique ability to carry her to places that the average person wouldn’t imagine–living vicariously through her life of mayhem, music, and madness is completely energizing and fun. It seems that the music, wind, and passion carry her to places that birth terrific stories for a memoir. And in this biographical account, you won’t have to “just wonder” about the things that happen when a big-time rock star and a small town girl meet.

Leaving you with the idea that dreams, no matter how ridiculous, are worth pursuing–because they just might lead to some mesmerizing music, interesting men, and hot adventures. Sherry is ridiculously fun, smart, and sassy. Her memoir, overall, is funny, fast-paced and episodic. ” The Penn Press

“Sherry Carroll is a real life Penny Lane and one wonders if she hasn’t got Cameron Crowe or Lester Bangs are hidden somewhere in her suburban basement

We can access other worlds and lives by the act of reading..but in this case, we are accessing the world where someone changed their stars by reaching for and literally grasping the stars!

Read it. Dream it. Be it….Don’t hesitate..leap into this life and enjoy it without taking the risks Sherry Carroll did…you can thank her for it later….”

That time I asked Buddy Miles how Carlos Santana rated compared to Jimi Hendrix

Everybody knows that it’s dumb to try and compare guitar players, and figure out who’s “best”.

But that didn’t stop me from asking Buddy Miles, when I interviewed him back in 2001, how he thought Carlos Santana rated compared to Jimi Hendrix. He’d recorded albums with both guitar legends in the seventies, so I figured he’d be as good a judge as any.

I also asked Buddy if there were any guitarists that he hadn’t played with that he wished he could, and his answer to that caught me a little off guard.

Life And Fairytales

1,000 Stories Behind The Eyes

Only If life was like the Fairytales I read,

An amazing fantasy always came to mind.

Me an amazing and strong warrior on a horse riding into the town,

My boyfriend a vampire.

Best friends with a monkey,

Protecting all the creatures is my life.

Then I open my eyes,

I’m here I live In the real world.

I have to take life for what it really is,

Hello reality.
