The Cummings Attraction

Front Cover
Xlibris Corporation, Mar 10, 2011 - Biography & Autobiography - 106 pages
How did his mischievous childhood foretell later events? How did the rebellious St. Louis teenager fare in the Navy during World War II? (He chose the Navy because they allegedly had clean sheets every night.) Stationed in the South Pacific, he was the youngest chief petty officer at 19 and written up in Navy annals. He drove fleet cars for a four-striper and ferried visiting entertainers to their performances on the island. Ernie describes exciting moments as a professional race car driver, winning many races driving open wheels, midgets, and stock cars in NASCAR’s predecessor races. In the 1960s, he booked big-name entertainers into St. Louis arenas and stadiums, eventually producing his own million-selling record. You’ll never guess what happened when he booked the Beatles into Busch Stadium. What did he think about his acting in films and television? And what will you find (literally) in the palms of his hands? Whether it’s racing cars, booking name entertainers, or charming his way through the Navy, Ernie’s unique perspective and vivid memories will lighten your day.
