Word Of Mouth Press, publishers of the long-awaited Tony Rice biography Still Inside, have announced that the book is now available for sale, including a limited number of autographed copies.
This is more than just an authorized biography. It includes the story of his life as told by Tony himself, along with a great many photos and remembrances from his many friends and collaborators in the music business. My favorite is this quote from Jimmy Martin:
“I’ve never heard nobody, unless it’s Tony Rice—he might come close— that plays rhythm like I do.”
Books are expected to ship no later than mid-April. Co-author Tim Stafford tells us that they received so many orders from yesterday’s (3/23) announcement that their ordering system was overwhelmed, causing a few technical glitches. He assured us that they have all the orders, though, and everyone who placed one will receive a copy of the book.
Still Inside runs to over 300 pages in a hard cover edition with a glossy color jacket. You’ll find full details online.
