Rock & roll never forgets by Deborah Grabien( Book )
5 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 455 libraries worldwide
The last thing the members of Hall of Fame rock & roll band Blacklight need to hear is that ruthless tabloid biographer Perry Dillon is planning a tell-all history of their group. The issue hits hardest for English ex-pat guitarist JP Kinkaid; with his history of heroin addiction and deportation, his estranged wife, and his long-term relationship with a girl he met when she was a teenager, JP has the most to lose. Dealing with his multiple sclerosis doesn't make things any easier. When he sits down with Dillon, JP's main concern is to preserve both his own privacy and that of Bree Godwin, his fiercely protective longtime girlfriend. But it's obvious from the first question that Dillon is digging deep. And he's not planning to stop until he hits rock bottom. Dillon's looking for trouble, the kind of trouble that garners publicity and sells books. What he finds is the kind of trouble someone will go to any length to cover up, and that includes murder. Opening night at Madison Square Garden encores with a corpse in JP's dressing room, leaving Blacklight in the middle of a media frenzy--and Bree as homicide lieutenant Patrick Ormand's prime suspect

JP Kinkaid's band Blacklight is asked to perform a free concert at the Cannes Film Festival, but the film screened there is not the film the band approved.

Book of days by Deborah Grabien( Book )
2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 114 libraries worldwide
"The release of Blacklight's double CD, Book of Days, looks like business as usual. The relaxed tour showcases a revolutionary new set design, as well as Bombardiers keyboard ace Tony Mancuso along as a guest. No one can predict what happens next: the CD goes multi-platinum, generating the need for a very different kind of tour. At first, everything seems fine. It takes a while before guitarist JP Kinkaid realises something very dark is going on: a string of deaths, following Blacklight show nights. Things come to a head when a longtime member of Blacklight's extended touring family is killed. At the band's request, Homicide detective Patrick Ormand investigates, but uncovering the reason behind the deaths may be a lot easier than healing the wounds those deaths have caused"--Page 4 of cover

Comfortably numb by Deborah Grabien( Book )
1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 44 libraries worldwide
"When the Emir of Manaar offers Blacklight a huge sum to play a New Year's Eve show in his capital city, he's immediately refused. There are good reasons: the band's prior experience with al-Wahid and his decadent twin daughters, the razor-thin timing, a band member's impending rehab. But the Emir makes an offer they can't refuse, and Blacklight prepares to play the biggest live show in their history. From the moment their plane sets down in Manaar, guitarist JP Kinkaid and his wife Bree are aware of disturbing undercurrents beneath the formality and opulence. When their personal equerry is found with his throat slashed just days before showtime, Blacklight's head of security, Patrick Ormand, is barred from the investigation. As the civilised facade around the event begins to crumble, it becomes clear that sending a quarter of a million fans home happy will be a lot simpler than getting themselves out of Manaar alive."--Provided by publisher

"When the Fog City Geezers sign a recording contract with Fluorescent Records, band founder JP Kinkaid makes an unusual decision: to record a live show as their first CD. Climbing into a tour bus named Magic with the band and his wife, Bree, he's expecting no more than the usual glitches and problems that happen when any band hits the road. What he's not expecting is a sudden series of interpersonal crises. Every one of those crises is linked to Fluorescent's signing of longtime thorn in JP's side, the disruptive and unpleasant bassist, Bergen Sandoval." -- Publisher
