Description by OLDIES.com:

Spike Jones never had time to tell his own story. He was far too busy performing, rehearsing and overseeing every detail of his incredibly complex and fast-moving stage shows, and planning future ventures - some of them remarkably far removed from the brand of entertainment that made him rich and famous. With the kind of energy and persistence Spike would have appreciated, Jordan Young has made sense out of Spike's chaotic career. Through diligent research and through interviews with ex-City Slickers and other longtime friends and associates, Mr. Young has not only put the facts of Spike's public life in perspective, but also discovered much for us about his turbulent private life.

Product Description:

The 3rd edition of Spike Jones Off the Record: The Man Who Murdered Music by Jordan R. Young. Expanded and updated!
Spike Jones Off the Record is a revealing portrait of the pistol-packing bandleader whose wreck-reations of popular music brightened the darkest hours of World War II. Explore the public and private worlds of a complex individual: a serious man in a funny suit; a no-nonsense boss with a razor-sharp tongue; and a public relations wizard who worked his best magic behind the scenes. Interviews with over 100 of Jones' friends and associates provide a wealth of anecdotes and revelations. Plus rare photos, a comprehensive discography, a who's who of City Slickers, a resource list and a foreword by radio personality Dr. Demento.
