For You for you (aka win a book!) - WINNER FOUND!


Recommended Posts

Our friend Lawrence Kirsch aka Laser has been kind enough to donate a copy of the brand new edition of his book "For You" to one lucky Laker. For those of you who don't know it, the book "For You" was originally published in 2007. It's full of fan memories from the early 70's up to around 2006 plus hundreds of awesome photos.

I can personally vouch for the quality of this publication and say that it will make a great addition to any fan's Bruce library.

So head to this page and find out how to participate.

The winner of the book will be drawn on March 1, so get right to it and make sure you enter in time.

I entered and knew the answer.

Thank you for the donation. I don’t own the book, so everyone saying they will give it away if they win, feel free to send it my way!  

Me too, and me too, and meeeee too! :D

Karsten. Please make sure to cancel my participation in this competition. I joined this competition just to see if I knew the answer . And I did. I already bought the book, and hope someone else will have the opportunity to win this copy.

 Tak på forhånd.

You could just join the que of those of us gifting it to another member if we win :)

Sorry about the delay with finding a winner. It will be another day or two due to some unforeseen problems. So feel free to participate. All responses will be put in the hat even if they didn't meet the March 1 deadline.

Better late than never... All entries were put in the hat and a winner of the For You book was finally found. Sorry it took so long. The winner has been contacted directly. I'm not sure if it's someone who is a member of the message board, so I won't post the name here, but it's a fan in Germany who got the answer of the quiz absolutely right: the state Bruce has never played in is Idaho... Shame on him for not playing a show in my wife's home state.

Anyway, thank you to everybody who participated, and thank you to Lawrence Kirsch for giving a way a book. Now, he did not ask me to say this, but I can honestly say that the For You book would be a great addition to anybody's Bruce library. Find out more about it here.

Hello everybody!

My name is Sascha, I am from Germany and I am the lucky winner of Lawrence Kirsch's great Book "For you".

I have been in e-mail contact with Mr. Kirsch for a while now. As I told him I work as a male nurse and so it took me a while to finally write a few lines about the book like I promised him to do.

First I have to say I was very surprised to be contacted by the man himself. When I joined the competition I thought in case of winning Karsten would send the book to me. So now I got beautiful Book signed an dedicated to me personally by the publisher. Lawrence, thank you again!

What we have got here is a hard cover book with over 200 pages of pictures and stories, split in chapters covering the decades from 70`s to the 2000´s.

I still haven't read everything, but there are sure some special stories told. We have a lady named Carrie Potter, whose grandfather Tom Potter and his wife Margaret once ran nothing less than the famous Upstage Club.

You read about people who had been fans for decades but didn't get the chance to see the himself live in concert until the 2000s because for example they lived under a dictatorship (greetings to our friend in Serbia!). Or you are a journalist and spent years of being a political prisoner and the not being able to get a passport until 2004 (my greetings to Turkey!)

We get unbelievable stories like the one of the "Tape Man". Over several sideways somedone gets a box of Bruce's stuff that was meant to be thrown away. An old pair of jeans, several cassettes. As it turns out some cassettes contains recordings of Bruce and Patti. Over Danny Federici's assistant Mary and Terry Magovern (yes, the man himself!) and with lots of patience the lucky fan gets to meet Bruce himself to give him back the cassettes. 

So if you haven't got the book already, give it a shot. It's worth it!

Take care everybody, stay safe!

Greetings from Germany
