Inhaltsangabe: A Book written by the daughter of a Blues Hall of Fame Inductee "Lonnie Brooks"is known National and Internationally as a Legendary Blues Recording Artist My dads calm spirit, gentle soul and his nine children, this is my story of growing up in the house with a Blues Legend, how I witnessed his career excel, witnessing the good times as well as the bad. Remembering when we didn't have much to eat and remembering the spelling on the bottles of generic ketsup and Mayo we ate as sandwiches to eating steaks and vegetables. Remembering dad having to comb my hair for school, giving me two extremely tight braids that wouldn't lay down, that got me chased home and beat up by classmates. Remembering my dad's first trip to Europe, his first televised appearance on "Hee Haw" hosted by Roy Clark, while my siblings and I sat on the floor watching the show waiting for him to come back home with the paycheck, and with haste so that we can eat. He even appeared on "Soul Train" hosted by Don Cornelius in Chicago, my cousin's and I at an early age choreographed dance moves to a song dad wrote called "The Flip" based from "The Flip Wilson Comedy Show" in the early seventies. Witnessing countless times of my dads music being used without his permission. Often a happy man we all knew when someone had upset dad, it had to be really bad for him to get very angry. I could always tell when he was hurt about something because his heart would definitely rise on his sleeve. Through it all I just want to express my point of view of the love my dad has for his music, his song writing, his guitar, his dignity, his Dream and his family. Growing up with my dad being on the road after a long haul of getting where he wanted to be in his career, things that happened to me that he has no clue about. Events from a child to an adult. With guided decisions and protection of my Guardian Angels forced me to seek freedom within myself to be able to share my story with you today.
Über den Autor: Writing this book I have learned to be true to myself and trust that I will not regret the chances I take for my reputation among my family members or anyone else or thoughts of my fathers blues following world. To follow my hearts desire, I turned away to make a clean sweep with everything I held inside of me. Today I celebrate my common connection, to honor and sustain my passion and Love that I was so afraid to express for many years. Only a few years ago I developed and empowered a positive way of thinking that would only leave space for new beginnings in my life and most importantly in the eyes of my family. The fruits of my laboring in writing the "Living In The House Of Blues" gives my purpose on earth a found meaning. My intentions are to add created uninvited surroundings I lived as a witness put down on paper and share with the world. Once done, no longer being afraid to move forward. First came the real life then the words to write, some hard lessons, horrific experiences undeserved, and remembering the pioneering and dignity my father held so close and dear. Through hardship from not being excepted in most part of the ghetto community by some neighbors, peers and so called friends. Growing up in the ghetto, a mother with white skin, and a black father that came to Chicago from Louisiana to find his destiny, to explore and shape his era of music that was so deeply inside him. Born a mixed kid, not being excepted on both sides of the fence of color. The smile on my face hid inner turmoil most my life, my thoughts were how could the world be so cruel and unscrupulous. In addition to unstable growth, badness at some point of my life growing up I was seeking attention and protection from both my parents. Deep beyond the smile was a small frail soul that was really in pain. Like a steam engine traveling backwards I quickly realized I couldn't pass this off onto my brothers and sisters. I had to take charge of
