Father’s Day Gift Ideas from The NEW 107.1 The Boss
Father’s Day is coming up on Sunday (June 17), and if you still don’t know what to get your cool rocking Daddy, the New 1071 The Boss has a few ideas!
For the Led Zeppelin fan: You have to wait until October to purchase Dad the 368-page photo book (that’s a holiday purchase), but in the meantime, you can pick up the remastered How the West Was Won, which was recorded in 1973 and remained unreleased until 2003. This slick digipak, containing photos from the set, was put together under the supervision of Jimmy Page. It retails for just under $17.
Paul Simon Dads: For the Dad that loves Paul Simon, there is the new book: Paul Simon: The Life, by Robert Hilburn. Simon did participate, but didn’t have control, therefore he is not thrilled with this juicy tome. Expect revelations from the often-cagey Simon about drugs, strange artistic maneuvers like his play The Capeman and his cantankerous relationship with his old partner Art Garfunkel. Retails for $22.
David Bowie Dads: David Bowie: A Life by Dylan Jones is a look into the artist with first hand stories from friends, family and colleagues. A page turner! Retails for under $17.
Grateful Dead Dads: For the Deadhead in your life, pick up Fare Thee Well: The Final Chapter of the Grateful Dead’s Long, Strange Trip by Joel Selvin. The book explores the inner circle of the band, and retails for $22.
Rolling Stones Dads: Is your Papa a Rolling Stone? You might want to splurge on him with The Rolling Stones–The Studio Albums Vinyl Collection 1971-2016. It retails for $450, so it’s quite a purchase. But isn’t Dad worth it?
And remember: nothing says “I Love You” more than the gift of Concert Tickets! You still have time to purchase tickets for Billy Joel’s record breaking run at Madison Square Garden (next show is July 16) and there is the always elusive but not out of the question tickets for “Springsteen on Broadway” (check TicketMaster OFTEN–sometimes there are drops–faith can and will be rewarded). Dad a Chrissie Hynde fan? The Pretenders return to the Count Basie Center for The Arts on June 28.
Happy Father’s Day!
