Face the MusicSan Francisco, 1975. Woody, an artistically brilliant, socially inept street musician, is just getting by. Inspired by Stephanie, the love of his life, he writes an amazing song that could launch his musical career. Then an unexpected betrayal leaves him fighting for his relationship and his future.

Hopelessly disorganized, armed with only his guitar and unique sense of humor, Woody tries to persevere against the inequities of the music business. Passion, desperation and intense idealism propel him head-on into the challenges of surviving as an uncompromising artist.

Face the Music is a story of love, self-discovery, and the spiritual power of music. Read Paul Liberatore’s review in the Marin IJ.

‘Face the Music’ is captivating, with powerful passages that are valuable contributions to the akashic records of American Literature. Generally, words are inadequate to express emotions conveyed by music; but this book flows like a moody, mystical, musical composition.”

– Barry “The Fish” Melton (of Country Joe and the Fish), musician and defense attorney.

Greg exposes the insularity of the pop-music business with stunning veracity. . .an insider’s look at its highs, lows, and a whiff of the steaming guts, delivered with style and verve. . .not incidentally featuring an unforgettable leading lady. Good shit!”

– Robert Hunter
