Another 15 seconds of "fame"
Remember this post? No? Can't say that I blame you; it dealt with some pretty obscure subject matter.
Well, unless you're a musician and music historian who's writing a scholarly book about the musicians of Alabama including Gene Sullivan and who had almost despaired of finding a photograph of Mr. Sullivan...until he stumbled across this here blog-like thing. And if you do happen to be Mr. C.S. Fuqua, you might just want to include the scanned photograph from the Gazette in Alabama Musicians: Musical Heritage from the Heart of Dixie, which is scheduled for publication this week and will be available from Amazon.com, Barnes & Noble, and the publisher's website.
Mr. Fuqua was kind enough to notify me today via email of the book's impending publication, and to send along a PDF of the book cover and the section of the book about Gene Sullivan. I particularly liked the accompanying image.
It looks like an interesting book. I'm going to order two copies. One for me to read, and one for my mom, because she'd never forgive me if I didn't.
Also, it's just another reason why I keep blogging (however sporadically)...you never know when even an obscure post will touch a nerve or fill a need for someone else.
