Shell Shocked Turtle



















Shell Shocked: My Life with the Turtles, Flo and Eddie, and Frank Zappa, etc. opens with Howard Kaylan––then a member of the Turtles––snorting cocaine off Abraham Lincoln’s desk inside the Nixon White House and ends decades later with Kaylan, a sometimes sadder and sometimes wiser man, reflecting on all that life has afforded him. His may not have been the most anticipated rock autobiography of the last two––or three––decades, but it’s an entertaining read that allows us a glimpse into the world of a ‘60s pop star, a ‘70s rocker, and a man who has been an integral part of more radio hits than you probably realize, for several decades.

There's even an audible version narrated by Kaylan himself HERE
