Homeless and Out of Business

By K.D. Sanders

Biography & memoir, Comedy & satire, Music & musicians, Short stories | eBook


"I look forward to the next installment in the author's memoirs. Beyond the interest in the iconic Tower Records and celebrity encounters, I want to know what happened next in the author's life, as his circumstances are left up in the air."



K.D. was the drummer for several bands in San Francisco before moving to Los Angeles with one of the bands to "make it" in the music business. The band broke up just a few months later. The other members went back to San Francisco while Kevin remained in L.A. sleeping in his 1973 Volkswagen van. He landed a job at the legendary Tower records on Sunset Blvd. (a place where Rivers Cuomo of Weezer once worked as well as Axl & Slash from Guns n' Roses @ Tower Video across the street) K.D. worked at Tower records on the famous Sunset Strip while living in his van for over 3 years until that one fateful day when his van was towed away. With nowhere else to go, he slept behind Tower records continuing to work at the record store. After declining sales of CD's and the power of the Internet, the unthinkable happened, Tower records went out of business. He didn't know what to do, as he was band less, homeless and now job less he decided to take a Greyhound bus 3,000 miles back to his hometown in the Florida Keys. Always writing poems and lyrics in hopes that he could make a song one day with his words. He paid a production company 200 dollars to put music to his lyrics for the song, "Alcohol Call" recorded by David Fox (guitar/vocals) of Magic Key Productions. Old school country band, Fall Down Daddy was founded/born by lyricist K.D. Sanders. The sound is reminiscent of Hank Williams Sr with a dash of Johnny Cash. The song, "Alcohol Call" has been released as K.D. remains band less, job less and homeless in his hometown in the Florida Keys but he also remains optimistic, thankful and hopeful that he has a song and stories to release to the world that just might change his current living situation and maybe someone else's. The author is grateful for and gives thanks to his Creator for making everything possible and hopes you enjoy the journey of his book series, "Where Did My Life Go?"
