Ray Shasho biography

Music journalist Ray Shasho was dubbed ‘Rock Raymond’ by friends and family for his love of rock music. Since a kid growing up in Baltimore, Maryland he became obsessed with music. In high school, he attended hundreds of rock concerts and even took a job at the famed Capital Centre arena to meet his favorite rock stars before and after their shows. After graduating from a CBS owned broadcasting school in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, Ray became a Top 40 radio deejay in the late 70’s and early 80’s and his life became the music. Unfortunately radio stations trusted computers (Arbitron ratings) over human instincts. It was the early radio jocks who discovered great music and put it out over the airwaves. Radio became mundane when they began mimicking each other based on the Arbitrons.

After his stint in radio, Shasho became an entrepreneur in electronics. Ray and his family owned and operated cutting-edge retail electronic businesses in Washington, D.C.  Shasho witnessed all the technological advancements firsthand and how it affected the music industry. From early transistor radios, record players, reel to reel tape recorders, cassette and eight track tape players, walkmans, CD players to MP3’s. Some of Ray’s clients included … Chuck Norris, James Mason, Ted Williams, Alex Haley, Art Buchwald, Dick Gregory, Dionne Warwick, John Candy, Jon Voight and General Colin Powell.

Ray Shasho published his first novel entitled Check the Gs, Ray’s comical and awe-inspiring novel about growing up in the family business. Shasho subsequently released a second novel entitled, Wacky Shenanigans on F Street-Proud to be Politically Incorrect in Washington D.C.

In 2010, Ray Shasho became a classic rock music journalist in St. Petersburg, Florida. It started out as a fun gig to help promote his book but something very extraordinary transformed. Shasho began covering concerts and music events around the Tampa Bay area and decided to take a crack at interviewing some of the rock music legends that he idolized all of his life. 

Ray’s very first “rock star” interview was Joe Lala who lived in Tampa, Florida. He contacted Joe by way of the internet and scheduled an interview at Joe’s home. Ray was surprised how cordial and amendable Joe was to tell the story about his rock and roll past. Ray and Joe spent hours together reliving his days of playing percussion with Blues Image, Stephen Stills and Manassas, The Bee Gees and Firefall. Joe disclosed stories about jamming with Jimi Hendrix and throwing Mick Jagger out of his hotel room in New York City. After the interview, Joe asked Ray to be his personal assistant and later to help write his own personal memoir.  Shasho was so overwhelmed with the ease of the interview that he immediately began his search for the next one.

Ray quickly became one of the top music journalists in the country. His column is read by thousands of music enthusiasts daily and Shasho’s in-depth interviews, album and concert reviews are featured on artist websites around the globe.

Shasho began asking each legendary musician, singer and songwriter this question … If you had a “Field of Dreams” wish, like the movie, to play or collaborate with anyone from the past or present, who would that be? The question became eminent to the interviewer and interviewee and the responses will surely surprise the most discerning music enthusiast.

Ray is currently the director of ‘The Publicity Works Agency’ promoting authors and musicians across the globe. His new book is entitled RADIO KILLED THE ROCK STAR  ‘WHEN THE MUSIC WE IDOLIZED VANISHED’  featuring over 50 Intimate Conversations with the Music Legends That Set Us Free. (A release date has not been announced as of yet) Music Journalist Ray Shasho has been on a rock and roll pilgrimage to help promote and save the greatest music the world has ever known.

Here’s a list of the music artists Ray has interviewed for the book and recently on the radio to help promote.

The True Story of an Eclectic American Family

and Their Wacky Family Business

AND

Wacky Shenanigans on F Street (2nd Edition)

Proud to be Politically Incorrect in Washington, D.C.

 

Wacky-Shenanigans-book.jpg

Check the Gs’ At an age when most kids are just getting rid of the training wheels on their bicycle, Ray Shasho entered into a crazy world of secret lingo and bullying sales tactics at the Chin Lung Art Gallery, his father's retail store on the corner of Thirteenth and F Street in Washington, DC. Check the Gs is the true story of how this bizarre family business changed his world forever. Raised by a Cuban Catholic mother and Syrian Jewish father, Shasho made his first sale at the age of six and never looked back. Life in the family business (and in the Shasho family) was never boring. From FBI interrogations to angry mobs, each new day at the Chin Lung Art Gallery brought with it new adventures. Check the Gs tells a story for everyone who is proud their family and heritage but not afraid to laugh at its many eccentricities, and for anyone who has ever worked in retail and experienced its humorous situations and misadventures.

Review …

…“This book takes you away to a time that will never be repeated in America. Where families worked together, ate together, and passed down the family business. Ray tells us his story and you are locked in from the first page. You live inside his family's retail store; when retail meant something before the Best Buys & Walmart's took away the shopping "experience." You're next to Ray when he attends rock concerts by real artists in the Baltimore & Washington DC area. This is a guy that lives & breathes two things: family & music. It’s a beautifully written book that I couldn't put down …

Highly recommended!”

Guitar Legend Steve Hunter To Release New Album

“Before The Lights Go Out”

The Deacon Of Rock Bites Back! 

“Before The Lights Go Out” is long time Alice Cooper/Lou Reed Guitarist Steve Hunter's latest solo album. The cover art and title make a statement about his failing eyesight, but don't make the mistake of thinking this is a quiet wave goodbye. As soon as you put on the first track, you will know that this is more like a Blues Rock Declaration of Independence! There are sexy grooves, luscious guitar tones and melodies galore.

As with all Hunter's releases, there is some diversity and sound imagery, not least of which is Tienes Mi Corazón where alongside his nylon string improvisation comes the sound of his own heart. And listen out for Joe Satriani adding his fire to the heat of “Mojo Man.”

Also joining Steve on a couple of tracks are two great Bass players: Erik Scott can be heard on “Mojo Man,” Erik is also an Alice Cooper alumni. On “Under The Bodhi Tree” is Andy Stoller. Steve and Andy toured together with Tracy Chapman during the “Telling Stories” album period, most recently Andy has been touring with Ann Wilson of Heart.

Says Steve, “This album was a real joy for me on many levels. A big part of the inspiration and motivation that kept me going; was from all the people out there who had faith in me and encouraged me through the entire process with their donations and comments. It was really a wonderful experience having you all be a part of it. It's my deepest hope and desire that you all enjoy the music on this album as much as I enjoyed making it. Thank you and God bless!”
Steve Hunter is his own man; he has been around the block with a forty-five year career.
From his 1973 solos on Alice Cooper's “Billion Dollar Babies” album, his legendary acoustic work on Peter Gabriel's “Solsbury Hill,” his “Intro” to Lou Reed's “Sweet Jane” and his searing opening solos on Aerosmith's version of “Train Kept A Rolling” Most recently he can be heard on Alice Cooper's 2017 album “Paranormal” making this his ninth Cooper album appearance. The Deacon is not done yet but his life is evolving! He has challenges playing live now but his honed skill, tone, power and soul, is dished up on this hot plate of guitar driven instrumental tastiness.

HEART BY HEART FEATURING ORIGINAL MEMBERS OF HEART

ANNOUNCE FALL TOUR 

The Band Includes Legendary Bassist Steve Fossen and Iconic Drummer Mike Derosier As Well As Breakout Vocalist Somar Macek Recreating the Music of HEART. 

HEART fans don’t have to feel so “Alone” anymore! With the recent announcement of an indefinite split between Ann and Nancy Wilson, music lovers will be happy to know that Heart By Heart, which features original founding HEART members Steve Fossen and Mike Derosier, have announced that it will be hitting the road with acclaimed vocalist Somar Macek leading the helm this Fall. 

Kicking off October 4 in Bradford, PA and ending November 18 in Gilbert, AZ, the Heart By Heart tour will bring back all of the favorites from the multi-platinum selling band including “Barracuda,” “Crazy On You,” “Alone” and more by perfectly recreating the songs of HEART. 

“We don’t consider ourselves a ‘tribute band’ but rather the second generation of HEART,” explained Fossen. “With Mike and me at the helm and Somar on vocals, we can, once again, help bring out those musical nuances and ignite the energy within our own band that made HEART one of the most beloved rock groups of our time.” 

In order to play the songs the way they were conceived, Fossen and Derosier have surrounded themselves with musicians who share their philosophy for excellence. Lead vocalist Somar Macek delivers a “jaw dropping performance” with her vocal range and stage presence, which is only enhanced by guitarist and vocalist Lizzy Daymont’s powerhouse performances. 

Rounding out the band is Randy Hansen, a guitarist known in Europe and America as the premier ‘Hendrix’ tribute artist who also collaborated with Francis Ford Coppola on “Apocalypse Now” and ultimately helped him win the Academy Award® for Best Original Score Written for a Motion Picture. Together, Heart By Heart has become a force to reckon with, with successful shows across the country and rave reviews wherever they perform.

While attending the University of Louisiana in Lafayette, Keith joined and recorded with the then mainstream rock band, "David and the Giants."

On June 30th of this year, Negron released the album he’s always wanted to release with daughters Charlie and Annabelle also featuring three previously unreleased Three Dog Night tracks. The album, titled Negron Generations is available now at ChuckNegron.com and on all digital music outlets including amazon.com. The unreleased tracks were recorded by the band in the mid-1970s prior to their first breakup in 1976. “The Letter,” “Save Our Ship” and “This Is Your Captain Calling” feature that iconic sound that could only come from the original vocalists of Three Dog Night; Cory Wells, Danny Hutton and Chuck Negron. Chuck, Charlie and Annabelle created a unique harmony blend that only a family can. The sisters’ lead vocals on The Ronettes’ “Be My Baby/Do I Love You” are compelling.

The evocative account of how Chuck Negron went from the height of worldwide fame and success, to the depths of delusion, despair and almost death is documented in hundreds of new photographs in the eleven new chapters of “Three Dog Nightmare” 4th Edition. The journey is very sad in places, uplifting in others as Negron tells it like it was. If you like the music of Three Dog Night, you will be captivated by the honest narratives about what was happening behind the scenes shared by Chuck Negron. The book is available December 5th in a worldwide release with all pre-sale copies signed by Chuck. Order your copy at  www.chucknegron.com
