(n.p.), (n.p.), (n.d.). A limited edition group caricature of the literary band: the Rock Bottom Remainders were a rock band made up of a group of bestselling writers, who performed on occasion for charitable purposes. Over the years their performances raised over $2 million for various charities. The most famous of the band members was doubtless Stephen King, but the group also included celebrity writers such as humorist Dave Barry, novelist Amy Tan, Matt Groening (creator of The Simpsons), and others. The band's lineup changed from event to event, partly due to the availability of the various individuals; a total of 16 authors were part of the band's lineup at one time or another. They formed in 1992, an idea of publicist Kathi Kamen Goldmark, and performed their final show in 2012, shortly after Goldmark died of cancer. This is a promotional poster, #182 of 270 copies and is signed by the eleven members pictured: Stephen King, Amy Tan, Matt Groening, Scott Turow, Mitch Albom, Dave Barry, Greg Iles, Ridley Pearson, Roy Blount, Jr., James McBride, and Kathi Kamen Goldmark.
