Product Description

Review

"[Snider] combines the sly phrasing of a stoner, the perfect timing of a stand-up comedian, and a mastery of the tiny detail."-The New Yorker "Todd Snider's compressed story songs are so vivid and knowing that they seem completely plausible... But the most compelling character may be Snider: a lowlife Randy Newman."-Rolling Stone "Okay, so he looks a bit like Beck, twangs and rambles like John Prine or Bob Dylan, crafts a song like Arlo Guthrie, and tells a deadpan joke in the vein of Zach Galifianakis, but Tennessee songwriter's songwriter Todd Snider is a rare performer who can at once channel tradition and still step poignantly-and hilariously-out of its shadow... He's a king-hell musical storyteller, possibly the greatest of his generation."-Paste Magazine "In I Never Met a Story I Didn't Like, Snider compiles 'mostly true tall tales' that will appeal to fans of his loopy, yet common sense-laden onstage banter. The book reads like a loose-limbed memoir with recollections of an inauspicious high school football career mixed with music business encounters with Jimmy Buffett, Garth Brooks, and others. Often genuinely hilarious."-Orlando Sentinel "[Gives] devout fans more insight into the man and his music...[a] memoir that's a lot like being at a very long Snider show, without the melodies."-Kirkus

Product Description

For years, Todd Snider has been one of the most beloved country-folk singers in the United States. He had a Top 40 hit with “Talking Seattle Grunge Rock Blues,” which gave national audiences the first taste of his insightful songwriting, at once satirical and sincere. Hailed by critics as one of the top albums of 2004, East Nashville Skyline was followed by The Devil You Know and The Excitement Plan. Snider’s songs took on George W. Bush and America’s recent involvement in foreign war, along with a host of more intimate topics.

As good as Snider’s albums have been, his in-concert monologues are even better. His shows are a loose-limbed, informal experience: it’s often just him and a guitar. He introduces songs with stories that can run as long as twenty minutes, always displaying his charm and wit. As he’s allowed his storytelling to evolve along with his music, Snider has become not only a modern day Bob Dylan but a modern day Will Rogers as well—an everyman whose intelligence, self deprecation, experience, and, above all, humor make him a uniquely American character.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Details Behind His Onstage Stories That You Love 14 April 2014
By Caleb Groom - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Todd Snider is a natural story teller. This book includes so many details around the stories that are familiar to Todd's fans. I loved the extra insight into Moondawg, Digger Dave and the countless people that Todd has interacted with during his time on the road. This is a fantastic book. I was sad when I got to the last page because I just wanted it to keep going.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gold! 4 May 2014
By Winston Chandler, III - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is, quite simply, one of the most entertaining books I have ever read. As a fan of Todd's music, hearing the stories behind the songs and the people he has encountered is both fascinating and hilarious. You won't be able to put it down.
High five.
