Heaven is a Playground Official Music Video

Heaven is forever.

By now, it’s likely you’ve heard of SLAM’s all-time favorite book, Heaven is a Playground, by our man Rick Telander. The book, originally published in the 1970s, had its latest re-release this month. To celebrate, Rick Telander’s son, Zack, made a music video highlighting Heaven‘s eternal bliss.

    It’s so worth reading–timeless!

    Agreed x 1000%. My mom wrote to Rick Telander asking where to buy the book (keep in mind this was the 80s and there was no Amazon) as no bookstores in the Vancouver area had it. She got back a personalized letter and an autographed copy…he wrote something like “take this letter back to one of those bookstores, and threaten to blow up their store” LOL. One of my and my brothers’ most prized possessions.
