All of it Biography:
Marc Campbell was the lead singer and lyricist for THE NAILS who recorded two critically acclaimed albums for RCA records. He's best known for the cult hit "88 Lines About 44 Women". Later this year, Campbell will be releasing his first solo album, "Tantric Machine". He is also working on a book, 44 WOMEN, an erotic memoir spanning the 60s and 70s, from the hippies to the punks. "Having been passionately involved with the social and artistic revolutions of those decades, I see many connections between the two and how one grew out of the other. 44 WOMEN pays tribute to the power and glory of sex, drugs, rock and roll...and LOVE. It is dedicated to the women in my life who did their best to keep me human". Marc currently lives in Austin, Texas with his beautiful Turkish girlfriend and his chihuahua Freddy. He likes good wine, rock and roll and hardboiled detective novels. He agrees with Timothy Leary that "intelligence is the ultimate aphrodisiac".
