Big John Harte decided to self-publish his autobiography so he could include all the stories he wanted and not be restricted by a publisher. Now you can be part of making this book happen. PledgeMusic is the premiere platform for connecting with fans and making them part of the creative process. Throughout the pledge campaign Big John Harte will be sharing videos, photos and stories with everyone who pledges. You will get a early peek into the book.

All pledgers will get a EXCLUSIVE chapter NOT available in the book…. available only right here on PledgeMusic.

Besides making your pledge and getting one of the many cool rewards you can help by sharing this campaign with all your friends on social media.

When it comes to celebrity bodyguards, few fill the heart and imagination like Big John Harte. Plucked by fate from obscurity, Big John’s brooding presence, wry sense of humor, and gentle giant image is the stuff of legends.

Big John Harte, protector of Rock Gods: Kiss, Iron Maiden, Billy Idol, Prince and more! The now-classic images of this hulking wrestler-like mustachioed man with his giant hands shielding an unmasked Kiss member are indelibly etched into your brain. It’s symbolic of the important role Big John played throughout the years — from the heady, narcissistic 70s til today — creating a human barrier between the public and some of our favorite stars. It would be hard to think of the glory days of Rock and Heavy Metal without him.

You know the lore, now find out where and how it all began…

Thank you for making this happen!
