About the Author

Tim Van Schmidt went to see his first rock and roll concert in 1970 and since then he has been hooked on the excitement of live music. His relentless search for new and different experiences has lead him on a journey through the concert halls of America. Eventually it also resulted in a freelance writing career that has produced thousands of articles in the Rocky Mountain region.

Schmidt has reviewed concerts, photographed performers, interviewed stars and reviewed their records. Since 1988, his work has appeared consistently in his hometown of Fort Collins, Colorado and the northern Colorado region, as well as in publications distributed throughout the Denver/Boulder area. Schmidt has become an experienced writer and photographer, an editor and publisher and continues to write for a wide variety of publications.

About the Book

King Koncert, Memoirs of an American Rocker: The 1970s combines personal details with a broad historical perspective to create a unique portrait of popular culture. The many artists that the book discusses not only represent popular rock stars, but also prominent names in blues, soul, jazz, country, pop, folk and experimental music. Also, on the fringes of the discussion are comedians and performing poets. The historical perspective anchors the book to the common experiences of music fans of the time. The personal details create an "everyman" voice that underscores that these lively descriptions come from the viewpoint of the audience.
