FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
CASSADY’S “ON THE ROAD” AGAIN!
John Allen Cassady, son of legendary folk hero Neal Cassady whose travels with Jack Kerouac and Ken Kesey took on mythological proportions in the 1950’s and 1960’s, will be touring the country in 2007 telling tales about his father and his father’s associates.
And instead of a ’49 Hudson (ala Kerouac) or a multicolored
1939 International Harvester School Bus (Ken Kesey and the Merry Pranksters),
John Cassady will be traveling in a classic Airstream motorhome with his
friend Jerry Cimino who owns the Beat Museum in Monterey, California and
http://www.kerouac.com. They’ll be stopping at colleges, bookstores,
coffeehouses and festivals all over the country to talk about the Beats
and their influences.
“John’s got stories no one else can tell,” Cimino says of his friend. “Kerouac lived at his house when he was young; Allen Ginsberg was his namesake; he was on a first name basis with Ken Kesey, Jerry Garcia and Mountain Girl. The entire era of the ‘50’s and the ‘60’s unfolded in John’s living room.”
The duo will be spending three months traveling in the fall of 2005 traveling
from California to Massachusetts and back again. They’ll be performing
at various locations along the way and their educational evenings of entertainment
will include readings, video clips and a slide show of the Beat Generation
along with Cassady playing guitar and telling personal stories.
