Hastings & Hastings Offers Advice for Hit and Run Accidents

Written by admin on Aug 26th, 2016 | Filed under: Press Releases

  With almost 36 years of experience defending the rights of accident victims in the Valley of the Sun,  Hastings & Hastings, Arizona’s Premier Discount Accident Law Firm, has successfully represented  thousands of accident victims. At Hastings & Hastings, they understand that accident victims have  experienced a major hardship. Accidents are shocking and disorienting events. Often, they result in  injuries and major property damage. Hastings & Hastings has made it a mission to support accident  victims with excellent legal representation, allowing victims to focus on the important issues of health  and putting their lives back together. Accident victims deserve financial compensation for the hardships  they have endured. When involved in a hit and run accident, securing this compensation can become  more difficult. Hastings & Hastings offers advice for hit and run accidents.

 A hit and run accident is defined by the Department of Motor Vehicles as, “any accident in which a driver intentionally leaves the scene without providing contact information.” Hastings & Hastings notes that the Department of Motor Vehicles places an emphasis on intentionality.

Hastings & Hastings notes that the number one priority for an individual who has been the victim of a hit and run should be to gather as much information as possible. The end goal is to be able to identify the at-fault driver in order to hold them accountable. First, victims should be concerned with their health and wellbeing. They should pull over to the side of the road and call the authorities. Next, they should write down as much as they can remember regarding the accident. They should attempt to recall any details they can about the vehicle that hit them, focusing on make, model, color, and license plate. Without these details, Hastings & Hastings notes, identifying the at-fault driver could be very difficult.

When initially speaking with law enforcement officials, victims should explain that the other driver involved in the accident drove off. This will allow law enforcement officials to begin pursuit promptly.

If the at-fault driver is never identified, drivers can file an uninsured motorist claim on their own policy, if they have that coverage. If the at-fault driver is identified, a claim can be made against the at-fault driver’s insurance.

“All accidents are frustrating. Hit and run accidents are doubly so. Hastings & Hastings proudly offers support and guidance do victims of hit and run accidents. With our experienced legal team, we can maximize your chance of securing a settlement,” said David Hastings, the founder of Hastings & Hastings.

Neuromama Board, Neuromama shareholders;

I am sorry that my involvement with the company resulted in suspension of NeuroMama, Ltd. (NERO) in the stock market.
I take full responsibility for this.

However, if I had to do everything over again … I would do exactly what I did in the first place … I would tell the truth again.
“Honesty is the best policy.” … told me my father … “Honesty is the best policy.” … this is what I tell my kids.

Having passed the first anniversary of my daughter Victoria’s death … with the San Diego Police Department continuing to sandbag the investigation, I have become convinced that the only way to achieve justice for my daughter Vica, and the investigators I have working on the case to present the public with incontrovertible evidence about this killing.

By incontrovertible evidence I mean who, why, when and where. Publicly identifying the murderer, the motive, the time and the location of the killing will force the SDPD to finally act even though it is a year late after the fact.

http://www.sandiegouniontribune.com/news/2015/jun/05/body-found-ocean-beach-pier-ID/

Let me ask you something. What if one of your children or grandchildren were murdered … cut down when they were barely 20 years old, slaughtered before they had ever even had a legal can of beer?

You’re a smart people, but you don’t have the answer to that question. Nobody … nobody … can know the answer to that question unless it has happened to them. I … I know the answer .. my precious Victoria was beaten, strangled, mutilated and thrown over the side of a boat last year in San Diego Bay.

So I know the answer … but I can’t tell you what it is … it’s too tragic, to horrible, to just plain gut-wrenching to put into words.

Since losing Victoria I’ve redoubled, I’ve tripled my efforts to make NeuroMama the biggest, brightest, most glittering .. the shiniest star in the technology, hospitality and entertainment world.

I’ve used energy I never knew I had. From driving this company, your company and my company, forward 20 hours a day, I’m working 22, often 24, hours a day.

Yeah, yeah, I know what the headshrinkers call it … the call it substitution or sublimation, whatever that means.

I call it building a monument, making a dream come true for someone who will be here … always here with me and you, spiritually, even though she can’t be here in person.

Because Victoria, my Vica, loved Neuromama. Hard as it is to believe of a 20-year-old girl with all the training and competition responsibilities necessary to be a rhythmic gymnastics performer. Hard to believe with all of that plus the usual interests in boys, school, texting … that a 20-year-old girl could also love her father’s company and work with him … partner with him really, to bring it to life.

OK, Vica was brilliant, but that doesn’t explain why she loved and believed in this company. Vica was a child of the internet generation, she knew more about how people use the internet and social technologies than I’ll ever know. I know the technology and the business. But she … she and her friends were the ultimate end users.

They knew where the black holes were … where the Web as we know it was failing to fulfill the needs of her generation and the generations of millennials who followed hers. She was proud of the fact that we produce multi-lingual search engines without any of the results tainted by phony SEO scams.

Like most of her generation, or more than most given her roots in America, Russia and Mexico and her ability to flawlessly speak all three native languages, she was consumed with interest in the world around us.

Victoria … Victoria loved the idea of our new social network without boundaries. A social network without the heavy-handed bureaucracy that controls Facebook. A social network that is like a throwback to the early, let-freedom-ring internet when each user’s voice was as loud as every other user’s. When one or ten or a hundred people’s interests was as important and special as the interests of a million other people or Fortune 500 company.

And Victoria loved our resort concept … she was, after all, a member of the green generation as well as the Internet generation … hotels, fine and casual dining, theme parks, malls and even casinos powered by the sun, all in beautiful classical buildings, all surrounded by lush landscaping kept green by desalinated water, all in one place.

Vica was no gambler. I doubt she ever set foot in a casino except for times when she’d help promote the company by staffing our booth and performing with our cirque artists at Las Vegas trade shows, but she instinctively understood the importance of location.

She understood the importance of locating all these vacation and tourists attractions on one site. She understood what taking 20 or 30 or 40 million vehicles a year off the freeways between a 3D IMAX theater here, and an elegant seafood restaurant there, and a theme park 80 miles down the road somewhere else, and a romantic resort hotel in another place and on and on and on … she understood what saving all that gas, what eliminating all those poisons from the air, would mean to the world she and her generation were going …

I was going … going to say “were going to inherit.” But I can’t say that any more, not now, not ever … sometimes it’s still so hard to believe …

Most of all she loved our work with the children of Mexico. The one’s coming from the direst poverty and the ones who were somewhat better off. She loved the idea of setting up The Little Palace of the Angels, to give them the chance to participate in some of the educational and inspiring things she had the opportunity to pursue … gymnastics, music, creative writing, craftsmanship, art ….

She loved this company and as I said she worked at it as my partner. More than my partner, my fellow dreamer, because she could see the big picture better than anyone else I’ve ever met.

She was my partner at trade shows and meetings with potential political and business allies …. Explaining to them the kind of entertainment and technology we would be bringing to their communities. Her ideas helped shape that entertainment and technology. She was already on the way to becoming one of the truly dynamic female executives that the world needs so many more of when she was so brutally murdered.

And since that day, I’ve been working harder and more frantically than ever to build this thing … to make it a monument to my Victoria that no one can challenge.

But that story, the story of my Vica’s life and death is what I want to tell you what has happened to me as a father. How the loss, the indescribable loss I have suffered, has changed me as a man and an entrepreneur.

The main thing it has taught me is what the word tragedy really means … and trust me it has nothing to do with losing some money here and there. Just like making some money here and there isn’t really the definition of pleasure or joy.

Making money is nice, it’s good, we all need money and it’s still, no question about it, better to be rich than poor. But true pleasure, true joy is having your family and most of all your children, around you … safe and healthy and loving and supporting each other.

So if you’ve decided to let me go, that’s fine. Go with God. You’ll still be my friend for life. Ten years ago, even two years ago, my attitude would have been 180 degrees different. I would be angry. I would be yelling. I would be questioning your motives and integrity.

But today, who am I to question anybody’s motive. So what if the size and scope of the projects that I have proposed kind of scares you? So what, it is a massive undertaking … we’re doing things that have never been done before, at least not in the size and variety that we’re doing them. So it can be a little frightening.

I understand that now. Two years ago I would be screaming at you for having no balls. Since then I’ve had the most horrible reality check a man can have. I’ve lost a child. What do balls have to do with anything. I see the real world clearly now. I understand that the whole “brass balls” bullshit is exactly that … bullshit.

Being afraid, being scared. I understand it now. It took the lazy, worthless cops in San Diego five days to find Victoria’s body. Five days after her mother and I reported her missing. Five days of not knowing … of hoping for the best and fearing the worst. Balls? The hell with balls … once I thought I had the biggest balls in the world. That five days taught me better. That five days with whatever balls I once had shriveled and aching with fear taught me a whole lot better.

And there’s another thing I learned that’s pure bullshit … that whole macho thing about grown men not crying. I’m a grown man and I cried, I cried plenty, for hours, for days … I still cry at times and places when I least expect to. Anybody who loses a child and doesn’t cry, isn’t a man, he isn’t even a robot, he’s just a big, dumb, inhuman rock.

But now … but now … I know about fears and I know about tears. And I know what’s so devastating that you can’t stop yourself from crying and what isn’t.

So if you decide to let me go, I won’t be shedding any tears over it. I’ll be disappointed … very disappointed … that you won’t be here to reap the rewards of my work … to cash in on the company that I helped to reshape. I’ll be sorry … sorry for your sake … but I won’t cry over it. There are a lot more important things in life for you and me and everyone else on earth to cry about.

If letting me go when we’re in the middle of that mythical corner every developing company has to turn is what you really want to do, tell me now and I’ll get the “divorce” papers drawn up and we’ll part as friends… in my heart, you’ll always be my friend … one of the handful of visionaries who stood with me and Victoria and is part of the company with a current market capitalization of $34.95 billion dollars.

Maybe you never thought about it this way, but you’re founders of a startup that became a 35 billion dollar company in just a few short years. How many Boards of Directors do you know who can make that claim, how many?

Though I have already gathered much of the evidence necessary to make the case, now the most difficult part would be to convince SDPD to reopen the case.

The badly decomposed body of my 20-year-old daughter Victoria “Vica” Zubkis was found floating in the surf near Ocean Beach, a suburb of San Diego, California, the evening of May 28, 2015. Despite clear evidence, including the removal of internal organs that could not have been exposed to predators unless the victim’s stomach had been slashed with a knife or razor before she was thrown into the ocean, San Diego law enforcement officials treated the case as if it were an old Keystone Kops comedy film rather than a murder.

Instances of the many investigative malfeasances (and sheer buffoonery) revealed in the sworn testimony (https://www.vica.io/wp-content/uploads/2016/08/Transcript-Testimony-of-San-Diego-Police-Officer-Deanna-Warrick-Chief-Investigator-of-Victoria-Zubkis-Death.pdf) of San Diego Police Officer include:

Totally ignoring a missing person’s report Victoria’s mother filed few days before Victoria’s death. In addition to refusing to follow up the missing person report themselves, SDPD officers declined to notify Ocean Beach officers of the missing person report despite the fact that OB, as it is locally called, was the last place Victoria was seen prior to her disappearance.

The department’s refusal to assign the case to its homicide division, which is trained to react quickly and decisively in gathering evidence and interrogating witnesses.

Assigning the investigation to the department’s Cold Case division, which typically deals with crimes which were committed a decade or more earlier with no crime scene or search and security of physical evidence required.

Cold Case officers failed to detain or track the activities of two key figures in the investigation. They also declined to alert security forces at airports and other points of departure, thus allowing these individuals to hop a jet and fly off to Miami the night before the officers showed up to interview them. Once their new location was known, the SDPD made no attempt whatsoever, not even a phone call to Miami police, to find and detain them.

Officers frequently interviewed suspects and “persons of interest” without even bothering to leave their patrol cars. In some cases, officers admitted that they “recruited” nearby residents outside apartment houses to go in and request a suspect or potential witness to come out and talk to them. When the suspect did come out, the interviews were conducted with the officers snug in their cars and the suspect standing outside answering questions through the window. When persons summoned to these in-car interrogations failed to appear, officers testified, they just drove off and ticked those individuals off the list of people to be questioned.

Even the most basic rules laid down in most Police Academy Chain of Evidence 101 courses were totally ignored in investigating Vica Zubkis death. Photographs of such physical evidence as cell phone text message screens simply disappeared or were never copied to the department’s data servers by the officers who took them. Asked to produce this evidence in court officers testified they “couldn’t find it.” In one case, a supervisor testified that he couldn’t even remember which of his subordinates took the photos despite the fact that he was present when the pictures were taken and was looking at the photographer taking them. In another instance, an officer testified that documents potentially critical to the investigation were deleted from an SDPD computer hard drive after a mere two weeks.

The SDPD’s refusal to follow up a report that bloody towels and a bathtub partially filled with blood had been seen in an apartment where Victoria was believed to be held in the days immediately preceding her death. According to later testimony by the superior of the two officers who received the information about the bloody bathtub, the team believed that an eye witness account by a resident of the apartment did not justify a request for a warrant to search the apartment.

The Department’s refusal to perform a forensic examination of a boat owned by Victoria’s reported boyfriend despite credible evidence that Victoria’s lifeless or nearly lifeless body might have been thrown into the ocean from that boat.

The Department’s blindly insisting that an official medical examiner’s finding that the cause of death was “undetermined” meant that Victoria had either drowned accidentally or committed suicide when “undetermined” in the case of a badly decomposed body with the organs missing could mean anything from murder to a person suffering a sudden heart attack while going for a swim.

The most cursory examination of what the SDPD did and didn’t do in investigating Victoria’s death reveals a trail littered with incompetence, laziness, deliberate destruction or concealment of evidence and an ego-driven, face-saving refusal to admit that their initial conclusion that no crime had been committed because the first officers on the scene could find no evidence of blunt instrument trauma was wrong.”

In the first place the medical examiner did find evidence of blunt trauma injury, a freshly broken leg that could have been fractured by a baseball bat or a piece of pipe, an injury that couldn’t be sustained by someone walking into the ocean to drown. In the second place, since when does a murder have to be committed by a blunt instrument. The evidence concerning the bloody towels and bathroom suggested that Vica was slashed with a knife, a type of wound that would probably be unidentifiable after a body had been eroded by the sea and repeatedly ravaged by sharks and other carnivores.

My only goal is to spend all my time as necessary to put so much indisputable evidence in front of the public that the San Diego Police are finally forced to do their job and bring Victoria’s murderer to justice. And if the Police still refuse to act, I and my former wife Alla, Victoria’s mother, will petition the Justice Department of the United States to file charges against the city of San Diego and its police force for violating Vica’s civil rights by refusing to make any attempt to save her life despite being alerted to her disappearance and probable kidnapping three to five days before she was actually killed.”

The last thing that Vica told her friend Alex, that she will be spending time on the boat with her boyfriend the next weekend … the next weekend … is the weekend that Vica has disappeared. (See Victoria’s last photo, and her last posting with message about her spending time with her boyfriend on his boat on her Instagram. https://www.vica.io/wp-content/uploads/2016/08/Victoria-Last-Instagram-Post-Vica-on-boyfriend-boat.png)

There is no real way to put the next part into words. It is always one of the greatest tragedies in the world for a young person, particularly a gifted, totally alive, vivacious young person on the cusp of just starting a life that will bring goodness and art and compassion and intelligence to a world that so badly needs all those things … it is always a tragedy beyond words when such a person’s life is snuffed out at such a young age. It doesn’t matter whether the villain is cancer or some other disease, a car wreck, a fire, whatever.

​But to be brutally slaughtered by someone you knew as a lover, a friend, by someone you cared for, someone you enjoyed spending time with. To be brutally slaughtered and to feel in your last instant of life​ that betrayal as well as the pain, to know that you are totally alone, alone and afraid and betrayed and suffering from the endless serious of wounds … let me tell you something, please, I, and Victoria, were not, are not, Christians. But crucifixion is not just the property of those who worship Jesus Christ as their savior. Crucifixion belongs to all of us in the darkness of our longest nights, in the depths of our worst nightmares.

Crucifixion. If there is any other word to describe what was done to Victoria, alone, afraid, betrayed and butchered, mutilated and dumped in the ocean in the dark of a San Diego night, I don’t know what that word is. And even if there is some other word, it doesn’t matter, None of it, none of it, matters. The little girl is no more. The young woman, who despite having to deal with her own demons as so many kids that age do, thrilled so many with her art, brought a little ray of light to so many with her compassion, sang so beautifully of life in three languages. That person, that girl, lives no more. And the only thing that matters are the memories and the tears.

Victoria’s father, Vladislav Zubkis aka. Steven Schwartzbard.

Microsoft recognizes SaaSplaza as the first global Microsoft CSP Indirect Provider for Microsoft Dynamics AX

Written by admin on Aug 24th, 2016 | Filed under: Press Releases

Based on significant investments in qualified personnel, training and certifications, and demonstrated support capabilities, Microsoft has recognized SaaSplaza as the first fully qualified global Indirect CSP Partner for Microsoft Dynamics AX globally.

SaaSplaza is also the first Microsoft Partner globally to achieve both Indirect CSP (providing AX to end-customers via Microsoft Partners) and Direct CSP (providing AX directly to end-customers).

The partners that choose to work with SaaSplaza will continue to be recognized for their sales in applicable Microsoft recognition and incentives programs, while working together with SaaSplaza to provide the full range of cloud services to their Dynamics AX customers.

Microsoft Director Jeff Edwards welcomed SaaSplaza’s appointment as an Indirect Microsoft CSP.

“SaaSplaza brings a demonstrated record of commitment, energy and experience with the Microsoft Cloud and Microsoft Dynamics AX to the CSP program. This is a great option for Microsoft Partners who want to grow their own Cloud business. They can collaborate with a global partner that really gets the Cloud, and who has a long history of building effective business relationships with other Microsoft Partners,” said Mr. Edwards.

As the CSP Indirect Provider, SaaSplaza will handle the management of Microsoft Dynamics AX after deployment on Microsoft Azure. Microsoft Partners can sell the new Microsoft Dynamics AX via SaaSplaza without making the commitment to become a Direct Microsoft CSP partner.

This collaboration delivers many benefits to Microsoft Partners. They can continue to build their Microsoft Cloud business, while maximizing the impact of their investments and the scope and value of the solutions they can offer to their customers.

Additionally, this allows partners to remain focused on their industry specialisations and core business, and bring this expertise to their Cloud partnership with SaaSplaza.

“Every Microsoft Partner who has seen the new Microsoft Dynamics AX knows that the global ERP landscape has changed forever. AX is ready to disrupt the entire ERP industry, and move ERP from a functional necessity to a core enabler of business transformation. We are excited to work with all of our existing AX partners around the world, and to welcome new AX partners who want to work with us, to seize this exciting opportunity,” said SaaSplaza CEO, Berend-Jan van Maanen.

TRANSACTIONAL PRICING: A TREND THAT HELPS TO CUT COSTS IN ONLINE LEARNING

Written by admin on Aug 24th, 2016 | Filed under: Press Releases

As a progressive way to help their customers find the ideal balance between cost and benefit, Training-Online.euis offering transactional pricing. This pricing system allows the users of this online-learning platform to predict the exact educational costs and to determine each user’s individual costs with precision.

About Training-Online.eu: This e-learning management system Web Application has been running since 2011. It is available in 8 languages all over the Internet globe. As Training-Online.eu strives to simplify the use of the e-learning platform both the students and the administrators, their e-learning software is based on an intuitive icon graphic user interface which even untrained personnel can use without difficulties. The Web App is responsive and runs on every smart mobile device.

Recently, transactional pricing has been gaining ground against the traditional monthly subscription systems which have proven to be non-flexible. If users subscribe monthly, they need to pay a regular fixed fee derived from aspects such as the number of theirstudents or the quantity of their content. This means in practice that no matter how often they use the e-learning platform, or even when they don’t use it at all, they still need to pay the fixed fee.

Transactional pricing, however, sets a fair charging mechanism and allows the users of Training-Online.eu to optimize their costs. There are no fixedfees in this pricing system. Users pay exactly for the courses and educational projects they have, and if they don’t use the platform for a time, Training-Online.eu doesn’t charge them any extra fee.

This is highly appreciated by companies and coaches who chose to use online e-learning to train their students and employees, as it gives them more freedom to decide when and how they want to create their courses and carry out the training. If there is a delay with the project, there is no need to pay any additional fee. At the same time, this pricing system allows them to calculate with precision the individual costs related to the training of a concrete person.

It is only logical that in this era of business process optimization transactional pricing systems have become a popular way to increase the profit by not wasting money on services the companies and subjects won’t actually use.

This pricing mechanism had been used before for outsourced software such as Microsoft Office when, during the last decade, many companies understood that owning the software is not necessary to use the technology it offers and renting it might mean the desired zero investments and zero maintenance fees. Nowadays, progressive e-learning platforms such as Training-Online.eu started using the same mechanism with the same pricing system.


Hastings & Hastings Offers Advice on Motorcycle Safety

Written by admin on Aug 24th, 2016 | Filed under: Press Releases

For residents of Phoenix, Arizona, summer is all about finding ways to beat the heat and stay cool. As  temperatures rise above 110-degress, many Phoenicians decide it is time to head out of town. They  retreat to the cooler climates of Flagstaff, Prescott, Payson, or leave the state entirely. Taking a road  trip is a way to escape the oppressive heat of the Valley of the Sun and it is also an excellent way to  have fun. For many individuals, motorcycles represent a thrilling and fun alternative to automobiles.  Hastings & Hastings acknowledges that there is little better than hitting the open road on the back of a  motorcycle. However, motorcycles do pose unique safety concerns. Accidents involving motorcycles are  often quite severe, and have a high likelihood of result in major injury or death. Hastings & Hastings  offers advice on motorcycle safety.

One of the most important factors in motorcycle safety is proper attire. It is absolutely vital that riders wear a helmet. Hastings & Hastings notes that for helmets to function properly they need to fit properly. A helmet that is too snug will be uncomfortable and could even prove dangerous in the event of an accident. A helmet that is too loose could fly off in an accident and leave the rider exposed. Helmets should be full-face and extend around the entire head.

In their years providing representation for accident victims, Hastings & Hastings has learned the importance of proper footwear. Motorcycle shoes should be sturdy and snug. This allows optimal control of the motorcycle and provides protection in the event of an accident.

For motorcyclists, awareness on the road is important. Hastings & Hastings speaks on the danger of blind spots. A blind spot in an area around a car that drivers cannot directly observe by looking in their rearview or side-view mirrors. If a motorcyclist is in a driver’s blind spot, they are in danger. The nearby car could perform a lane change without ever knowing that the motorcyclist is present. Hastings & Hastings advises motorcyclists to avoid cruising in a car’s blind spot, which is typically 4-5 feet behind the vehicle on either side.

“Statistics routinely show us how dangerous it can be to ride a motorcycle. However, by taking the proper safety precautions, we can reduce the risk significantly. We would never want to discourage people from enjoying their motorcycles, but we would do anything we can to keep them safe,” said David Hastings, the founder of Hastings & Hastings.


Parker & Sons Advises on Mold in HVAC Vents

Written by admin on Aug 24th, 2016 | Filed under: Press Releases

Mold anywhere in the home can be a massive problem. If it is not caught before it starts spreading,    homeowners could end up facing a huge cleaning and repair job which could cost upwards of        thousands of dollars. Additional, both mold and mildew have been link to several major health  concerns, including allergies and respiratory problems. Most of the time, mold and mildew will grow in  a damp location such as the bathroom. Occasionally, mold can grow somewhere much more insidious,  such as in HVAC vents. Molding growing in HVAC vents is rare, but if it does occur, it could be the sign  of a major problem. The HVAC unit could be delivering mold and mildew spores to everyone room in  the home. Parker & Sons advises homeowners on mold and mildew in HVAC vents.

If homeowners are suspicious there may be mold or mildew growing in their home, the first place they should check should be the HVAC register. Mold already growing on the register is a sure sign of a greater infection somewhere inside the HVAC duct system. Even with a clean register, a problem may still exist. Individuals should play close attention to any smells or odors which emanate from their air ducts. If visual signs of mold are present, homeowners will have little need to perform a mold test. If there is an odor, but no visual signs of mold a qualified mold tester should be hired.

If a homeowner or renter has identified mold in their home, they should begin taking immediate steps to see that it is removed. If mold growth is left unattended, the situation will only grow more dire over time as the mold continues to spread.

To ensure that mold is 100 percent removed from the duct system, individuals should hire a company that specializes in mold cleaning and removal. If even a trace is left behind, the infestation could grow back. It is possible for homeowner to remove mold from HVAC ducts without the aid of a professional, however this is a highly involved process which needs to be thoroughly researched before it is attempted.

“Because the desert is so dry, we really don’t have to worry too much about mold growing in HVAC ducts. The fact that it doesn’t happen often, doesn’t mean that it never happens though. What I does mean, is that few people pay attention to the problem, so if it does happen, it may get wildly out of control before anyone notices,” said Josh Kelly of Parker & Sons.


“Red Rocks: The Concert Years” New Art Book by Celebrated Colorado Music Hall of Fame Director and Author G. Brown Is Now in Release Worldwide

Written by admin on Aug 23rd, 2016 | Filed under: Press Releases

Denver, CO: “Red Rocks: The Concert Years” has just been published and released worldwide this week by The Colorado Music Hall of Fame. It presents a comprehensive history of what came to be considered one of the Natural Wonders of the World, thanks to the combination of natural aesthetics and acoustics, as impressive to the eyes as to the ears. It has been captured in a beautiful new Art Book written by celebrated Colorado Music Hall of Fame director and author G. Brown.

The book presents more than 200 interviews with an array of performers, from the late Jerry Garcia to Dave Matthews, from Bono to Paul McCartney. It also chronicles the most detailed accounts to date of the legendary Beatles show in 1964, Bruce Springsteen’s first outdoor concert ever in 1978, and U2’s career-making 1983 video shoot.

Legendary Rock and Roll Hall of Fame guitarist Carlos Santana who wrote the forward said, “Red Rocks is not just dirt and stones and sky. It’s a temple, a shrine. It’s the same setting that that the Greeks performed in at the beginning of civilization, and it definitely has the sacred American Indian spirit—you can feel the vibe. There is nothing like playing at Red Rocks under a full moon. Anything can happen!”

Richly illustrated, this well-crafted coffee-table book includes hundreds of images from leading photographers in the area, supplemented by historical photos from the libraries of the major daily newspapers, historical societies, and private collections.

“It’s true—of all the places in the world to play, Red Rocks is the greatest venue. And I know I speak for my band mates and many of my fellow artists when I say that there is no better qualified journalist to record its storied history than G. Brown,” David Crosby, two-time Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Artist, said.
