Author and musician Skip Haynes began his musical and writing career in Chicago in the Nineteen Sixties.
What's A Nice Guy Like Me Doing In A Band Like This? was written about his real life experiences being on the road from New York To Los Angeles with the two Chicago bands he belonged to from 1970 to 1997. Aliotta Haynes Music and Aliotta Haynes Jeremiah.
He has written over two hundred songs including the hit song Lake Shore Drive.
What's A Nice Guy Like Me Doing In A Band Like This? is a very funny autobiographical docu-fictional series of stories about life in his band during one of the best parties ever thrown on Earth - the Nineteen Sixties through the Nineteen Seventies - written by someone who was there - almost all of the time.
The stories are based on real events and places. All the major characters portrayed are real people or two. Names have been changed to protect the innocent, but they know who they are.
Skip now lives in Los Angeles and owns a record company called the Laurel Canyon Animal Company that creates music about, for and with animals. He still writes music along with books and still performs.
He is the author of two other books - Waiting For Rosie and How To Straighten Up Your Act In One Week and Keep The Money In The Country.
