"I purchased Denny's book, Welcome To My World and it is totally awesome.
For anyone who grew up in Northeastern Ohio over the past 60 years,
this is a MUST read. Baseball, music, hippies, Christian communities, song
writing, publishing, praying and ministries. "It's in there"

Denny's life, highlights

Reviewed in the United States on March 20, 2019

Denny Carleton is a survivor of some of the most important cultural episodes of our lifetimes. A resident of the Cleveland Ohio area, he lived out a life in the world of rock music, in which he made contact with many of the greats who both came through there and rose from there, including providing service to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. . I found it a very interesting read, mainly because he name-checks very many of the persons and places and movements that show up in my own history--a kid from the "north shore", Lake Erie, who both met Jesus and continues to play the music I loved in my own youth.. Thank you Denny.

Enter Denny's World

Reviewed in the United States on January 23, 2016

I really liked this book. Denny writes his story the way it should be done. Down to earth, with inspirational insight on his life, family and the many hundreds of people who shaped his career path including his spiritual dedication to Jesus. Denny "hones-in" on the reality of traveling a road of making music a career in a way that will keep you reading on. The amazing people he came to know and lost, to the ones that are still a huge part of his life are all here. He's played with the best musicians this world has to offer, been in many great notable Cleveland bands and he continues teaching music locally and entertaining people of all ages.

If you love music, travel into the world of Denny Carleton. He's an inspiration to anyone interested in making music a lifetime achievement. Highly recommended read.

A Wonderful and Inspiring Read

Reviewed in the United States on December 15, 2016

Welcome to My World, the memoirs of Cleveland musician Denny Carleton is a
wonderful and inspiring read! Journeying from the 1960’s to present day,
this book takes a nostalgic look at Cleveland music as seen through the eyes
of an accomplished musician/composer and teacher. More than a mere
historical review, it is a moving and spiritual work, well with its time.
