‘Joe Rocks’ Goes Drinking with Elvis


‘Joe Rocks’ Goes Drinking with Elvis by Harvey Sawler

‘Joe Rocks’ Goes Drinking with Elvis is a novel based on the real life of Joseph Rockwell ‘Joe Rocks’ Zottarelli, a second-generation legendary figure within the ranks of New York’s stagehands union – the revered Local One – ground zero of the world-wide International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees (IATSE). From Broadway through the birth of television, Joe rubs elbows (and clinks glasses) with practically every show business personality who was anybody throughout the middle decades of the 20th century. Although a perfectionist at his trade, Joe is a chaotic, impulsive, fun-loving character, living life on the edge of the stagehands’ harried sub-culture, with his normal Long Island, New York family always waiting in the wings. The heart of his story is that Joe, as a natural storyteller, has an unrequited lifelong desire to become a visual artist and children’s author. In the forefront is a hallowed place in New York’s Central Park, and the constant reminders that Joe has to find his heart, re-find his family, and, come to the realization, as Dorothy said, that “There’s no place like home.”
