Descrições do Produto

Descrição do produto

Billy Sooner made it big. Mickey and Al were left behind. In a bid to recapture the past, they hope to reunite on stage at Madison Square Gardens, before Mickey’s shady past and bingo dauber heroin send them on a trip they can’t come back from.

Flight 505 is bloody, bleak, meditative, funny, and, on one level or another, all about music, musicians, and the glory and damage of their world.

What People Are Saying About Flight 505:

"Les Bohem writes a story with the same easy style that people share them in conversation. In Flight 505, he brought me back to the noir and punk rock-informed Los Angeles of my youth, with recognizable characters and situations as though he were describing an actual night we’d been at the same place at the same time. This is no romantic memory; it is, instead, a richer, in-depth portrayal of a scene and late 20th Century American Dream of “making it” in rock n roll. Much more than “rock n roll fiction,” Flight 505 is a cautionary tale about knowing oneself and being able to live to tell."—Theresa K.

"Flight 505 pays dark homage to the Southern California post-punk music scene. Through the story of three band-mates drawn to Los Angeles during its rock club heyday, Les Bohem skillfully deconstructs the adolescent male’s archetypal dream of rock and roll stardom. Bohem’s prose carries the cautionary weight of his having been there. The problem with most rock and roll fiction is that it invariably falls prey to its own self-importance. Flight 505 begs to differ." —Rodney Crowell

"Every dirty club floor, cheap beer and chronic loser truly lives and breathes in this story, and Les’ amazing recollection of and attention to detail are so impeccable if you weren’t in L.A. back in the ’80s, you’ll certainly feel as if you are… and if you weren’t in a band, well, this is what it was like. A great read." —Johnette Napolitano

Sobre o Autor

Leslie Bohem was part of the great Los Angeles music scare of the early 1980s. His band, Gleaming Spires, had a cultish hit with their single, "Are You Ready For the Sex Girls" (if you ever saw Revenge of the Nerds, you know) and he was at the same time holding down a day job as the bass player with the band Sparks. After this burgeoning career in rock and roll stopped burgeoning, he found a job writing screenplays about rock and roll musicians whose careers had stopped burgeoning. But no one makes movies about rock and roll musicians whose careers etc, and so he wrote A Nightmare on Elm Street Part 5, The Horror Show and bits and pieces of several other memorable epics. Eventually Twenty Bucks, which he wrote based on a 1935 script by his dad, Endre, was made. The movie earned critical raves and several awards, including an Independent Spirit Award. His other screenwriting credits include Daylight, Dante's Peak, The Alamo, Kid, Nowhere To Run, The Darkest Hour, and the mini-series Taken which he wrote and executive produced (with Steven Spielberg) and for which he won an Emmy award. He's had songs recorded by Emmylou Harris, Randy Travis, Freddy Fender, Steve Gillette, Johnette Napolitano (of Concrete Blonde), Alvin (of the Chipmunks), and the awesome Misty Martinez. His short stories have appeared in some rather embarrassing men's magazines, in several magazines including Sanitarium and The Lost Coast Review, and on Derek Haas' site, Popcorn Fiction, where two of them, "DMT" and "Honeymoon" have been optioned and will hopefully be coming to a theater near you soon. Right now, he's developing his series Shut Eye for Hulu. His new album, Moved to Duarte, will be up and out soon.

5.0 de 5 estrelas Noir set in LA music scene of the 1980's. A great read! 27 de setembro de 2015
Por Avid Reader - Publicada na Amazon.com

I really love this book. Author Leslie Bohem paints a vivid picture of the rock scene in LA in the 80's. He also explores the world of winning and losing that is so much a part of the lives of people who are reaching for stardom. He has a distinct writing style, tells a great story, and gives you an authentic taste of people who came up in the hot music scene of the 1980's. I highly recommend Flight 505. I am expecting we will be hearing a lot more from Les Bohem because he has such a unique voice, and is an amazing storyteller

5.0 de 5 estrelas BETTER THAN THE ROLLING STONES 6 de setembro de 2015

i just read "flight 505." this is a must read for anyone with a pair of eyes and a heart.
this is a more than a rock and roll story. this is what it's like. i should know. i too was in a
band, not in the 80's when this story takes hold, but in the sixties. why the author, les bohem,
didn't call the book "bits and pieces" is beyond me. i still give this read five stars. can't wait for the movie!

5.0 de 5 estrelas Great. Really great. 19 de setembro de 2015

From the first sentence to the last, I could not put this book down. The writing is so clear and concise and pure. It’s fun to read something this sparse, yet specific. The personalities are great. The setting is so richly detailed. And the tone is pitch-perfect. Honest. This is a remarkably well-observed story about dreams, age, friendship and life. Just an amazing piece of writing.

A private jet powered by broken dreams, regret and self-delusion. Fame might have eluded Mickey and Al, but that doesn't stop them from getting back in the chase—long after their expiration date. A fun, fast read that brings the 80s LA New Wave scene to life in vivid color, and explores the meaning of success through the perspective of three very different, but hopelessly intertwined characters. A great read for anybody that ever chased the brass ring down Hollywood Blvd.
5.0 de 5 estrelas It was funny and yet very sad as many of your songs ... 10 de outubro de 2015
Por Bill Kerby - Publicada na Amazon.com
Formato: eBook Kindle Compra verificada
This is a completely satisfying book. A tiny story that means so much to so many; I never played a lick of music in my life (my hound dog chase was writing), yet this book seemed so true...even to my life. It was funny and yet very sad as many of your songs are. And like some of them, the book ended in a lonely place. Yet, it was so rich, I immediately started it again. Home run, Mr. Bohem. One of those unique, confounding in-the-park home runs.
