I’ll be speaking and doing a Q and A at The Battery Club in San Francisco on Tuesday, February 6, 2018 @ 7:30PM
Out of Our Heads
TUE, FEB 6
7:30P – 9:00P
Author of Our of Our Heads, Ronnie Schneider is among a select few people who can claim to have taken an active role in the explosive beginnings of 1960s rock and roll. While working at ABKCO Records, he was responsible for handling the likes of Sam Cooke, Neil Sedaka and Bobby Vinton. But things really got interesting in 1965 when Schneider was assigned to oversee the Rolling Stones’ U.S. tour – and go on the road with the group. If you think that’s crazy, Schneider also worked at Apple Records with the Beatles and was there at the breakup of the band. After leaving ABKCO in 1969, he produced the historic Rolling Stones 1969 US Tour, the award winning Maysles Bros’ documentary, Gimme Shelter; and the 1970 Rolling Stones European Tour.
Schneider will share behind-the-scenes tales of rock and roll and film making from the 1960s and answer questions – including what really happened with the Rolling Stones and Hell’s Angels at Altamont in 1969 and the breakup of the Beatles.
We ask all members to attend the events to which they make reservations. If you don’t, you prevent another member from attending.
At the end of the Rolling Stones 1965 tour, my first tour, on December 5th, 1965, Keith Richard* signed my tour book.
My friends from Miami will know what Keith means 🙂
*After the Rolling Stones signed to Decca Records in 1963 their band manager, Andrew Loog Oldham, dropped the s from Richards’ surname believing that “Keith Richard”, in his words, “looked more pop”. In the late 1970s Richards re-established the s in his surname
Harold Bronson, co founder of Rhino Entertainment, hosted a private, Out of Our Heads chat/Q&A, event at his home. I had a great time and have to thank Harold and Miss Glass, my honors English 9th grade teacher. I was shy until she forced me to do a speech for extra credit at the Knights of Pythias Lodge in Miami.
