Graham Salisbury (also known as Sandy Salisbury) (born April 11, 1944, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania) is an American author and musician. He has written many books including Under the Blood Red Sun, his most famous novel and was primarily active as a musician in the late 1960s, notably with The Millennium. He lives with his family in Lake Oswego, Oregon.
As A Musician
Salisbury was a songwriter and musician in the late 1960s, and is best known for his association with Curt Boettcher. He was a member of Boettcher's groups The Millennium and The Ballroom (whose 1966 album remained unreleased until 2001), before attempting a solo career of his own, with Boettcher producing, on Gary Usher's Together Records label.
He performed on many hit recordings from bands such as The Association, Paul Revere and The Raiders, Tommy Roe and many others.
Though several singles were released and an album was completed, the financial failure of the label contributed to the commercial failure of the singles and caused the album to remain unreleased for over 30 years.
In the early 2000s, compilations of his work started appearing, including the release of his late 1960s solo album.
Salisbury worked several jobs before becoming an author of children's literature (under his given name).
