P.F. Sloan: Requiem For An Icon of Song

Kirk Silsbee, Glendale News-Press, 2 January 2016

SONGWRITER P.F. Sloan died in November of pancreatic cancer, at age 70.  Though the general music audience has seldom known his name, among singers and tunesmiths he's held in very high esteem.  In his honour, Altadena's Coffee Gallery Backstage fittingly presents a tribute concert Thursday night.  Singer-songwriters Carla Olson, Peter Lewis and John York, journalist Paul Zollo and lyricist Steve Kalinich will toast Sloan in song and story.
