By the time the sun started to rise over the Great Lakes, I had almost managed to convince myself that maybe I wasn’t crazy after all. Stressed? Sure. Way too old for this nonsense? Okay, you got me there! Thirty-eight was way too old and it was way too late to run away from home, so that was a very good possibility. Exhausted? No, not just yet, still a bit too soon and too early in the trip. I was bound to get that way at some point, but I would worry about that when it happened. At the moment, I was having fun. That was the important thing. The most fun I had had in years.

The Shiny Happy Sherry Fairy takes flight again! And I loved every moment of it.

The closer I got to my destination, the more convinced I was that this was the right choice…

What REALLY happens back stage Sherry? Fairy Tales of S&D&RnR & #EricBurdon

Most R&R fans don’t really know what happens back stage; can you tell us a little about your experience?

That’s a really tough question right from the start. Wow! Way to start with a bang!

Mainly because it takes me most of the book to truly give you an accurate picture of what the real world behind the scenes at a concert is really all about.  I think most people imagine they do know from the sensationalized stories about oversexed rock stars surrounded by giggling, wiggling, gorgeous young groupies willing to thrill every boy in the band, and how marvelous it all is for everyone involved.

The Animals were an English band of the 1960s, formed in Newcastle-upon-Tyne during the early part of the decade. The band moved to London on finding fame in 1964.

The band balanced tough, rock-edged pop singles against rhythm and blues-oriented album material. They were known in the U S as part of the British Invasion.

The Animals underwent numerous personnel changes in the mid-1960s and suffered from poor business management. The much-changed act moved to California and achieved commercial success as a psychedelic and hard rock band with hits like San Franciscan Nights, When I Was Young…
