Lost Book Gem: "The Five" - Robert McCammon (2011)



"I've been trying for a long, long time.
Just to capture you inside a rhyme
."
--> Starz <--


The Five is a terrific Robert McCammon novel, though certainly not the palpitating type of thriller we have all come to enjoy and expect. 

Sure, the elements of horror and suspense are in there, but they take a backseat to the wonderful characters deftly created.  Each member of the rock band...The Five...ring true.  Nothing clumsy or forced.  No false notes.  

The Five are a group of veteran musicians, talented and sincere, but have never quite tasted the sweet fruits of success.  And they are on the last leg of a tour that threatens to be their last.  

This 500+ novel...is an homage to all "Rockers", past and present, who've tried to do their thing in this world.  And to all the fans who love them for it. 

"Cherry Baby" - Starz


I've been trying for a long, long time
Just to capture you inside a rhyme.
I've to keep you here inside with me
Til they say that I can be set free.
Oh, don't you know.
I'm never going to ever let you go.
Cause you're so sweet.
I've got to have you.

Cherry mmmmm Cherry Baby
Cherry, Cherry oh yeah
Cherry, Cherry Baby
Cherry, Cherry oh oh

When the master key has locked the gate.
I lay down my weary head and wait.
My dreams fly across the endless miles.
Then I'll see your precious eyes awhile.
Oh, can't you see.
You're never going to get away from me.
Cause you're so sweet.
I've got to have you.

Til they say that I am free and clear.
This old heart of mine will keep you near.
I just pray you won't forget me here.
Cause you're my soul, my pretty little.


Good stuff!
