The problem with the book, without going into other detail generally, is that Gary US Bonds (Anderson) DIDN'T invest in Yank Barry's Vitapro as he states, either as a creditor or as a shareholder. He simply supplied a fake Small Business Loan fabricated invoice to one of Yank Barry's companies, whereby Barry would illegally get the funds back from Bonds on a corrupt taxpayer funds-supported fake supply. The invoice as for master-tapes that Barry already owned thru YB Productions that were the subject of the fake SBL proceed flow-back, whereby the bank issued a cheque to Bonds for them, he didn't own them, and Bonds gave a cheque back to Barry's company for fake commercially non-viable recording services, an "in and out" in Bonds hands, with funds going back to Barry. This was the nature of Yank Barry's government-guaranteed loan proceed fraudulent flow-back scheme that he used to start-up his Vitapro co. Again, Bonds DIDN'T 'invest' in Vitapro, either as a creditor or as a shareholder. He just 'cleaned' a bank loan cheque for him, giving him back the money. Perhaps Mr. Anderson can supply some sort of cancelled cheque, of that time, for 'his investment', bank wire-transfer, any simple thing to try and support a lie Gary?
But, hey, if you're willing to fabricate fake title docments and conspire with your 'friend for life' in the amounts of $100,000 and $56,000, why not toute the commecially non-viable product in some book on early rock and roll.
Also, Barry pirated the product from Sonny in SA. At the time apartheid existed in SA, with it's trade sanctions, which prevented Barry from doing business with the 'scientist', Sonny, so simply take his idea and put some nominal effort in and call it your own: Yank Barry's classic MO as a knock-off artist. The scientist was never paid for anything and was just ripped off, what Yank Barry usually does.
Get your facts straight rather than print up some propaganda.
