Tom Brown Recalls His Vietnam War Experience From His Book Summer Of Love, My Ass!

Tom Brown, author of SUMMER OF LOVE, MY ASS

H.T. (Tom) Brown lives in Laguna Niguel, California with his wife (they were childhood sweethearts), and one of the largest Frank Zappa music and memorabilia collections in the world.

He became a professional musician (drums), at the age of 16, and finished out his musical career by playing exclusively with Zoogz Rift from 1988 until his last project in 2001.

In the interim he pretended to be an executive in the music industry working for Rhino Records for almost 20 years. While at Rhino he compiled Beat the Boots 1 & 2 for Frank Zappa, which resulted in the largest export sales the company had seen at the time.

He is currently working on another book or two and prefers to be called “Tom.”
