LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA - There are not too many people who can say that they managed the early tours of The Rolling Stones in the United States , and dealt with the financial affairs of some the biggest names in the Rock era. For example, The Beatles, Sam Cooke, Herman's Hermits, Nancy Wilson, and Bobby Vinton, but Ronnie Schneider can. He is the author of "Out of Our Heads," memories of a college grad who managed tours, and finances for the Rolling Stones. He explains the truth about Meredith Hunter's murder involving the Hells Angels, motorcycle club, on December 6, 1969 at the Altamont Speedway Free Concert, and how "Gimme Shelter," a 1970 documentary film chronicling the last weeks of The Rolling Stones' 1969 tour in the U.S, was created.
"The Rolling Stones never hired the Hells Angels and Yoko Ono didn't break up the Beatles, and I prove it with Proof of Truth," says Ronnie Schneider.
"Schneider's fact-filled volume further illustrates how he and the Stones in 1969 helped establish larger creative (production and package) and economic controls of an existing business model which demanded traditional flat fee performer fees to their new economic world where the band received 60-70 percent of the box office gross. This joint model has served as the blueprint for arena and stadium acts that followed. Schneider recounts the business lives of the Beatles and offers a very spiritual moment with George Harrison stopping by his desk and handing him a signed paperback of Autobiography of a Yogi," said Harvey Kuberni, author and music historian.
Schneider will be speaking and sharing his stories at The Battery in San Francisco on February 6, 2018 at 7:30 pm. His book, "Out of Our Heads," is available Amazon, Barnes and Noble and all book retailers.

HONOLULU, HAWAII - In 1893, Peter Cushman Jones, 60, entrepreneur, persuaded Ballard Atherton, and Charles Montague Cook, his close friends, to invest in a new bank in the Republic of Hawaii. Four years later, the Bank of Hawaii became the first chartered and incorporated bank to operate in Hawaii. It officially opened its doors to the public on December 27, 1897, and operated its first office in downtown Honolulu from a two-story wooden building. In 1942, Bank of Hawaii was appointed as the official depository for the U.S Navy, Pacific Theater. In December of 2010, Forbes Magazine named Bank of Hawaii the "Best Bank in America" for the second year in a row.
Bank of Hawaii is is increasing their minimum wage level from $12 to $15 per hour effective Jan. 1, 2018, which indisputably benefits impacts and allows the company to have a minimum wage in line with Hawaii's "living wage," roughly $30,000 annually, for single individuals. “Our employees are, by far, our greatest asset. It’s our pleasure to reward our team with this holiday opportunity,” said bank Chairman, President and CEO Peter Ho. “We’ve recently been thinking about increasing our minimum wage level throughout the organization to the living wage level. The adjustments to the corporate tax rate provided further momentum to execute on the plan.”
