Meet Chris Epting, an award-winning journalist and the author of over 30 books on history and popular culture. He's written regularly for the Los Angeles Times, Huffington Post, Travel + Leisure, the Wall St. Journal, AOL.com, Loudwire and dozens of other high profile outlets and music/travel publications. Many of his best-selling books make him a regular on radio and television programs all over the country.
When it comes to rock and roll history, Epting has written extensively about the topic, co-writing memoirs with rock and roll hall of famers John Oates and Def Leppard’s Phil Collen, and authoring the popular “Led Zeppelin Crashed Here”– the locations of America’s Rock and Roll Landmarks.” But as a longtime Orange County resident he is especially proud of his book, “Rock and Roll in Orange County: Music, Madness and Memories” which he will be featuring during his talk. Elvis, the Beatles, the Righteous Brothers – they all are connected to the OC, along with many other legends that Chris will be sharing stories about.
