This Paperback Edition of Danny Zelisko's ALL EXCE$$: OCCUPATION: Concert Promoter is autographed on a bookplate by Danny Zelisko.

Danny Zelisko has seen it all. Whether scoring some “hoochie cooch” for Muddy Waters or introducing his mom to Ringo Starr, Zelisko always left the show with an unbelievable story. In this personal and heartfelt collection of essays, Bill Graham’s protégé and legendary concert promoter Danny Zelisko, reflects on his four decades of experience in the live music business where he organized or promoted more than 34,000 shows. Danny conducted hard negotiations with Chuck Berry, brainstormed names for Lollapalooza with Perry Farrell, auditioned for Frank Zappa, and befriended world-class comedians like Rodney Dangerfield, Sam Kinison, and Andrew “The Diceman” Clay. Get a peek at the behind-the-scenes shenanigans from the 1970s to the present day. Zelisko reveals how he established the Grateful Dead as an annual Las Vegas draw, arranged “emergency pimple surgery” for Axl Rose, and was invited on stage to jam with Carlos Santana. Do you love going to concerts? If you’ve ever wondered what happens backstage at a live show, you must read this book. Get an “All Exce$$” pass! Read it now!

About The Author

Danny Zelisko has made a lot of acquaintances and friendships in the music business over the last 5 decades, and that’s who he is writing about in his first book effort.

ALL EXCESS: OCCUPATION - CONCERT PROMOTER is the story about growing up in a Chicago suburb in the 50s and 60s, with his large family. Thru good fortune to have met many of the sports stars in Chicago in that era, he then parlayed his ability to form bonds with some of the biggest athletes on Earth into becoming a concert promoter. Different uniforms, different types of events in almost every way, except one. Both sports and music events are basically the same because it’s about putting butts in seats to enjoy their favourite team or singer or band . With a different type of show they each put on, no 2 games or concerts are ever the same - hitting the ball well or singing that big note in a song that sends the audience to their feet.

Meanwhile, Danny thought this to be the best time to write about all the stars and building his business from scratch into a great career as a concert promoter, while sharing over 700 pictures from his vast memorabilia collection. ALL EXCE$$ takes you on a fun journey from growing up in Chicago to moving out west to discover gold as a concert promoter.

Danny hopes this book will inspire others to GO FOR IT AND FOLLOW YOUR DREAMS. Check it out, you are sure to love this, and share this with your friends to spread the good words about rock n roll concerts!
