I read this book as I’ve always been a fan of both recorded and live music. I admire musicians mainly for two things: their creative skills and artistry in composing and/or delivering a tune and their stoicism in between the times they are actually on stage for persevering through working conditions that would test the resolve of anyone too young to recall the privations of a nineteenth century coal mine.
The book takes us through the smells, sounds, sound checks, seedy venues, soiled smalls and the supping, snorting and shifty sex – although seemingly, mainly the smells - associated with rock band tours on a tight budget. It is more than tinged with realism as it brings home to me… Read more

Genuine Pure Accessory - ChargePAK C6L Rechargeabl&hellip by Pure
