Who doesn’t know “Time Has Come Today,” the massive hit single by The Chambers Brothers that made the charts in the fall of 1968? Co-written by Lester’s brothers Willie and Joe Chambers, it’s seared into the collective memory of the nation and the world, busting out as it did in the turmoil of the Vietnam era and having been in well over 100 movies and commercials over the years

The scandal that Lester never received a dime in royalties from 1967 to 1994 will be part of the tale that he and his co-writer Tee Watts will share with you at Bird & Beckett. It is also a celebration of Lester’s 83rd birthday and he is cutting the price of the book for this event from $30 to $20 as his gift to the public.

Masks mandatory (we have one to give you) when Lester is in the room. Your understanding and cooperation are appreciated.
