Mark Yoshimoto Nemcoff is a bestselling and award-winning author living in Los Angeles who has been known to occasionally moonlight as a TV host, voice-over artist and rock journalist. A professional composer of music for television for many years, opportunity knocked and transformed him into a screen/TV writer and author featured on "Access Hollywood." Then a podcast recorded in his car became a weeknightly drive-time radio show on Sirius Sateillite Radio. This led to a handsome feature in Playboy Magazine that compared Mark to Howard Stern and Jon Stewart.
What happens when someone gets murdered in your hotel while you’re on tour? How do you get backstage at a big rock concert? How much drugs were people in the music business really doing in the 70’s and 80’s? Which superstar artist rented out a whole supermarket after hours?
Rock legend has it that one newly-minted superstar’s career was killed by a single shot — an sniper’s bullet fired through the lens of a camera and broadcast to an eagerly awaiting public through the magic of music video and the television channel that had become the most powerful pop culture engine in modern history. Finally, the truth can be told about what really happened… and the story is pretty hilarious.
