A recent interview with Eric Burdon of The Animals as seen on the television show “Hello Paradise”. Very candid and lots of fun. Eric talks about drugs and Rock n Roll.

You are never to old for Rock and Roll Fairy Tales

Published October 4, 2014 by Sherry Carroll

Scrawny, high school neighborhood misfit Sherry was not glamorous groupie material, just a naive small-town girl who never dreamed hanging around the stage door at rock concerts would get her anything but the occasional autograph. But the stars that came to town had a very different opinion of her wild red curls, sprinkling of freckles, electric energy, and one-hundred-pound dancer’s body that boys never seemed to notice. Backstage, she became the Shiny, Happy Sherry Fairy, a teen queen on the inside of the hotel and dressing room door with a wild side, a wicked wit, and a way with words that flew with the biggest boys in rock and roll–none bigger than Eric Burdon, former front-man of the seminal classic rock British invasion band The Animals, a sexy, charismatic English singer twice her age. Long after she had traded the rock and roll road to ruin for responsibility, respectability, and a real life, and forgot all about music and the men who made it, she still had trouble forgetting about him. After 20 years of trying and failing to resist his considerable charms, she decides to go on the road trip of her life and risk it all to find out just how much, if any of it he really meant.

” What a well-written gritty story of backstage Rock and Roll life. But more importantly it is the story of a ballsy woman that navigated her way through it. A no holds barred story of backstage barbarism as well as great kindness. ” 

Joe Smart on Even Rock and Roll has Fairy Tales by Sherry Carroll


 A Riveting book that gives you a wild, raucous, insider’s look at ROCK ‘N ROLL from days of yore! A Fascinating and fun read. The story meanders through a haze of backstage, hotel, and on-the-road scenes, as viewed through the eyes of an (originally) wide-eyed teenager, who eventually becomes wise beyond her years. Trippy, entertaining, and at many points sweetly erotic.  I’d like to see more from this writer. The story rings so true that the teenaged narrator HAD to have been there and (pun intended) done that!”

“From one Rock n Roll Princess to another – mission accomplished. I loved it. I stayed up all night reading it – I really couldn’t put down the Kindle! I was one of those women who watched “Almost Famous” and laughed at how accurate it really was. I was in the middle of it all – in my years in Rock Radio – and I really connected with how Sherry presented her experiences in “Even Rock and Roll has Fairy Tales”. Everything Sherry said about groupies, back stage environment – and the changes that have gone on – is really true! Sometimes for the worse.  Sherry’s experiences were fun, crazy, and wild – and that is reflected in her writing. Many writers have such a poor way of describing these types of events- the excesses and the chaos – and Sherry nailed it. Everything morphs into a new “normal” – and she chose to join the World of The Rock and Roll Circus. Congrats Sherry – Eric should be proud! I can’t wait for the next volume!”   Laurie Loomis



STILL on SALE 2.99 Sherry Carroll’s Outrageous, Fun, Sexy, R&R Memoir “Even Rock and Roll has Fairy Tales”

Published September 23, 2014 by Sherry Carroll

Unlike many Rock and Roll memoirs, Even  Rock and Roll has Fairy Tales: The Flight of the Sherry Fairy doesn’t start with specific ambitions that involve groupies, fame and drugs. Or Eric Burdon

The fun, sexy, and outrageous Sherry Carroll, begins by telling us how she once “bought a ticket to ride on the ‘American Dream’, however is willing to admit (pretty quickly) that it doesn’t quite work for her. After all, she can’t hide behind “owl-­‐like school teacher glasses” much longer when there are tight, sparkling clothes to wear. She dreams of a life filled with Rock and Roll, men, shenanigans, and perhaps even a little bedazzling.


Sure, Sherry has her fair share of men to tell stories about, but the most interesting is Eric( Burdon, former lead singer of The Animals and still living legend) He’s a character that, much like Sherry, is colorful and entertaining. While transcending the average healthy, functional relationship Sherry and Eric have some good times and some Oscar-­‐worthy verbal exchanges that are as unforgettable as her box of “useless crap” in the attic.

This woman is ballsy, and takes no-­‐prisoners when it comes to love and life.


Sherry Fairy’s dreams have the unique ability to carry her to places that the average person wouldn’t imagine—living vicariously through her life of mayhem, music, and madness is completely energizing and fun. It seems that the music, wind, and passion carry her to places that birth terrific stories for a memoir. 

And in this biographical account, you won’t have to “just wonder” about the things that happen when a big-­‐time rock star and a small town girl meet.

Leaving you with the idea that dreams, no matter how ridiculous, are worth pursuing—because they just might lead to some mesmerizing music, interesting men, and hot adventures.

Sherry is ridiculously fun, smart, and sassy. Her memoir, overall, is funny, fast-­‐paced and episodic.” The Penn Press
