SAD VACATION includes interviews with Roberta Bayley, Steve "Roadent" Conolly, Donna Destri, Kenny "Stinker" Gordon, Bob Gruen, John Holmstrom, Hellin Killer, Walter Lure, Honest John Plain, Howie Pyro, Cynthia Ross, Andy Shernoff, Gaye Black, Casino Steel, Phyllis Stein, Sylvain Sylvain; in addition to the late Leee Black Childers and three key residents of the Chelsea Hotel, Victor Colicchio, "Neon" Leon Matthews, and Ned Van Zandt, who had a lot to say about the events that took place on October 12th 1978. Drawing upon their reflections and a batch of newly-released Grand Jury documents, "Sad Vacation" presents a solid timeline of events for the very first time.

JACK LEE TO RELEASE RETROSPECTIVE DOUBLE-ALBUM BIGGER THAN LIFE: ANTHOLOGY NOVEMBER 25TH ON VINYL AND CD VIA ALIVE NATURALSOUND RECORDS

Legendary singer/songwriter Jack Lee has been on the radar of rock fans since the late '70s, when he formed the iconic power pop band The NERVES, alongside Paul Collins and Peter Case.

His songs have been covered by a multitude of artists (BLONDIE, SUZY QUATRO, CAT POWER, PAUL YOUNG), but fans have found his solo work very hard to come by prior to this release.

Bigger Than Life is a double album filled with 23 memorable songs, all reissued for the first time since the 1980s, and showcasing the incredible songwriting craft of this reclusive pop genius.



Jack Lee's Bigger Than Life will be available November 25th on limited edition colored vinyl and CD formats via Alive Naturalsound Records.
