THE LONG STRANGE RIDE OF A RAIDER
Jim Valley left the Raiders a bit more than a year later, the frantic pace of filming Dick Clark's "Where the Action Is", touring, and the lack of recording any of his material having taken it's toll. His solo career fizzled, an he disappeared into rock and roll oblivion!
So imagine my surprise when I accidently came across his website a few days ago! It turns out that he has been rather busy in the post Raider years! For the past 25 years he has been been educating children, recording children's music, writing award winning children's books, and teaching children to express themselves through art. He will be doing workshops in local school in a couple of weeks, and is also planning a concert that my granddaughter and I are going to attend.
He also has a terrific adult contemporary album out titled ROLLING SEA. You can sample a few of the songs at www.jimvalley.com. It will be the first album i buy as soon as the Christmas recovery is complete!
So, check out his websites to find out more...www.jimvalley.com, www.rainbowplanet.com
