Ron Eckerman was an early pioneer in the concert industry.  In 1973, he began producing concert tours and created a concert lighting / tour management company, Clearlight Enterprises.

The organization toured with the top bands of the era: Fleetwood Mac, Peter Frampton, Willie Nelson, WAR, Humble Pie, Foghat, Alvin Lee, Waylon Jennings, Trapeze, Montrose, Gary Wright, and many others.   
    
In 1976, he took on the challenge of managing Lynyrd Skynyrd tours, and witnessed and participated in their meteoric rise to fame and worldwide acclaim.  
After recovering from the tragic plane crash that put an end to the original Lynyrd Skynyrd, Eckerman went on to produce in television, film, and stage, and taught theater and artist management at Santa Monica College.  
 
His book "Turn it Up!" is a memoir about his experience with the 1970's concert scene and the rise and fall of one of the world's most legendary rock bands, Lynyrd Skynyrd. 

Ron is the author of "TURN IT UP" book and audio CDs available at  http://www.turnitupbook.com
