New Book: BlindSighted!
Turley Richard’s career has certainly had its ups and downs, but there’s one constant throughout his life — his ability to fight back against the worst possible odds and come out standing tall. The list of those who know him and appreciate his enormous talent read like a Who’s Who in America’s music and entertainment business. In the 60’s and 70’s he shared the stage with Chubby Checker, Frankie Avalon, Paul Anka, Jackie Wilson, Bobby Darin, Boots Randolph, Richard Pryor, Richie Havens, B.J.Thomas, Bobby Goldsboro, The 5th Dimension, Miles Davis, Jerry Lewis, Tony Bennett, Aretha Franklin, George Carlin,Sarah Vaughan, Joni Mitchell, Jerry Stiller and Ann Meara, Shelley Berman, Professor Erwin Corey, Cat Stevens, Joe Walsh, The Pointer Sisters, Woody Allen, Steve Allen, Sally Kellerman, Moody Blues, Black Sabbath, Jethro Tull, The First Edition with Kenny Rogers, Ray Charles, Art Linkletter, and Fleetwood Mac. Turley has also been featured nationally on mega-hit and long running TV shows such as Dick Clark’s American Bandstand, David Frost, Merv Griffin, and Johnny Carson’s Tonight Show. In this book, you will read about his tragedies and his down times. You will share the sorrow of his sight being taken away from him in the prime of his life. But, you will find this to be a happy story, filled with optimism and hope. From Turley’s example, you will learn “defeat is not an option.” This book is not written specifically for the blind. It is written for all people who are simply trying to “see.” This book is a labor of love and I hope you enjoy it and are changed by its content.
This book also contains a bonus 6-song CD!
