As part of the xpresso book tour for Kaylene Winters’ Fearless
By now you all know that besides books, I’m a music fiend. So, of course, when I saw that Kaylene Winters’ newest book was a rock star romance, I knew I had to be part of this tour. I asked Kaylene to list her Top 10 Rockers (of any gender) who she could imagine fictionalizing and why. I love this list because it could almost as easily be my list. Many thanks Kaylene!
Top 10 Rockers (of any gender) who Kaylene could imagine fictionalizing and why them?
- Ann & Nancy Wilson – I need to do a sister rocker series. Stat.
- U2 – I really want to do an Irish Rock band series (in the works!!)
- Jimi Hendrix – We need more diversity in our Rock Star Romance – having a black guitar hero seems like a great next step.
- One Direction – This seems out of left field, but I’d like to do a boy band put together in a talent show.
- Fleetwood Mac – I’d love to explore “incestuous” inner band relationships and how to navigate.
- Billie Eilish – She’s fascinating in a way that would create a dark angsty story, I’m more prone to bands – so I can make a series out of it, but it’s something in the back of my mind.
- Lumineers – I’m such a rocker, but I love the idea of exploring Americana and the entire vibe.
- Van Halen – LTZ is a little influenced already by VH (with DLR!) – but part of me would love to set a book in the 70’s and go all in on the sex, drugs and rock and roll of yesteryear.
- Love & Rockets/Bauhaus – similarly – I’d love to go all 80’s and get into where emo really started.
- Pearl Jam/Soundgarden/Alice in Chains – my roots in Seattle 90’s, and already the inspiration because I lived through it – my favorite music decade by far!
