Alan Brown on Richard Grudens
    Isn't it strange that although you have never met someone you know that they are a decent person. I soon realized this when i discovered Richard Grudens book "STARDUST" a book which has to be a bible for everyone who likes good music. As soon as i asked a favour of the man he responded straight away.Richard Grudens a man who's books are at the top of their class, a man who's books will always be around to inform people what good music and artists are about.

Mario Lanza Author Bob Dolfi Praises Richard Grudens
   Being somewhat of an author although not in Richard Gruden;s class, I do know what to look for in a book.  Sometimes it's not what you say as much as how you say it and Richard portrays this teaching very well in his books.

   It is so refreshing to read about a personality without having to sort through all the lies, innuendoes and smut before getting to the man himself. I commend Richard for being true to his subject as well as himself and it shows.  Well done Richard

"An exceptionally gifted author"
We have read several of Richard  Grudens' books,  and have enjoyed every one. Richard is not only a true Gentleman, but an exceptionally gifted author.  Perhaps what makes Richards books so different to so many other authors is that his aim and purpose is to share his knowledge of an artist's talent only, and not of their failings or weaknesses.   They are simply an enjoyable read  and we have learned a great  deal from Richards books, and are really looking forward to reading  "Sinatra Singing"

"Our Favorite Author"
  It's funny how our taste in music and authors melt into one...Great music to  hear and a wonderful author to read...W e have had the pleasure of reading Richard's earlier books and always use them for a reference...We are fortunate to turn on a stereo and hear our favorate singers...Now all we have to do is open a cabinet and refer to a book by our favorite author....

Grudens is  one of the best possible tutors

Ever since reading Richard Grudens’ “Stardust,” I realized what an amazingly talented writer he is. He finds a way to put you directly into the story and life of each of the myriad of performers he highlighted in the book. For people like me, who believe they were born too late to have seen some of these performers in their heyday, and who nevertheless are true fans of music and performers from the “Golden Age Of Music,” Grudens is  one of the best possible tutors about those wonderful days. A wordsmith with a propensity for painting the most musically gifted pictures with his words. And the prolific Richard continues with yet another soon to be classic: “Sinatra Singing.” You can rest assured, this will more than likely turn out to be THE definitive tome on the artist ever written, since Grudens heavily, and accurately, researches his work, and interviews so many of the people who either were there, or were an integral part of Sinatra’s career in one way or another. Here’s to a man who has done, and will continue to do much to celebrate, as many true fans do, the finest stars and music from the Great American Songbook.

Best regards, as always,

New Englands Radio Host/Ron Della Chiesa
Those of us who enjoy "Music Not Noise" can be thankful for a writer like Richard Grudens.
His many books on Jazz, Popular Singers, and the Big Band Era are essential to the library of anyone interested in our countries great musical heritage.  I greatly admire the time and research he puts into all his publications and the love of his subject matter.

I'm sure Richard feels the same way about what he does as I do about my life in radio...."Nice Work If You Can Get It."

Continued success to a true gentleman and dear friend.

Thanks Frankie...It's a pleasure to be a part of your radio team.

Author Richard Grudens Come Once In A Life Time

In visiting Richard Grudens' "Celebrity Profiles" website, it was indeed a pleasure to know there are superb authors such as Mr. Grudens.  If I may quote you Frankie in your promotions;  "Richard Grudens;  goes all out to keep the entertainers of good music alive in his books."   Not too many Authors today stay the coarse of writing about the biographies of entertainers, without adding garbage.  The Mr. Grudens authors such as he come once in a life time.  And again thanks for the heads-up to "Celebrity Profiles" web site.

Grudens' Sincere Dedication
Actually one should not judge an author when - like me- not being familiar with his work. But I read the things that my "previous speakers" did say here about Richard Grudens and that's very meaningful. I noticed that they are unanimously full of praise for him since he stands out due his integrity, the love of truth, his accuracy in ressearching and absolute honesty. That speaks for itself and shows Grudens's sincere dedication to and his respect for the artist he portrays in his biographies. How great to see that there's an author who is able to go without any sensationalism, "know it better" and superficiality, and instead does enthral and entertain his readers by completely focusing on a musician's artistic talent and life's work. For sure a truly gifted author. The very best always to Richard Grudens and thanks to Frank E. Dee for always keeping us informed on the LanzaLegend forum about all the "good people" and the good music.

Cristina Fontanelli Salutes Author Richard Grudens
It's difficult for me to put into words as eloquently as Richard Grudens does, how much I enjoy being interviewed by this wonderful author.  He is full of integrity which his books clearly reflect.  But, more than that, being an artist myself, I truly appreciate the wealth of knowledge of music and the great singers that this man possesses.  I think his "angle" on Sinatra is much more valuable than any simple biography could ever be.  When I was searching seriously for my vocal technique and wanted an understanding of the life of an artist, I wish I had had a Richard Grudens book to guide me along my path.  I strongly suggest that any singer/musician who is serious about their art should read his books.

Dedicated To Richard Grudens

.... Edgar A. Guest has always been my favorite poet, he wrote this ever so right, and I have used this in my talks and dedications to such great people as you, Richard.  Edgar A. Guest never wrote a bad poem, and I can relate to you Richard and him, as being the best.  Always the best to the best…Y-O-U…. Frank E. Dee/Host
~ Compensation ~
by Edgar Albert Guest
(1881 - 1959)
I'd like to think when life is done...
That I had filled a needed post,
That here and there I'd paid my fare
With more than idle talk and boast;
That I had taken gifts divine,
The breath of life and manhood fine,
And tried to use them now and then
In service for my fellow men.
I'd hate to think when life is through
That I had lived my round of years
A useless kind, that leaves behind
No record in this vale of tears;
That I had wasted all my days
By treading only selfish ways,
And that this world would be the same
If it had never known my name.
I'd like to think that here and there,
When I am gone, there shall remain
A happier spot that might have not
Existed had I toiled for gain:
That some one's cheery voice and smile
Shall prove that I had been worth while;
That I had paid with something fine
My debt to God for life divine.
