Bernard Purdie: Autobiography Coming; R&R Hall of Fame?
Purdie recently finished his self-published autobiography, called “Let the Drums Speak,” which will be released in October. He raised $15,000 through online crowdfunding to help complete the project. He is also in talks to have a documentary made about his storied career.
In the past few years, he says he has heard more chatter than ever before about him being inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum. “I think it’s going to happen,” he predicts.
