Tales of Rock n' Roll and (more often than not) flatulence,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Grumpy Old Rock Star: and Other Wondrous Stories (Paperback)
Wakeman is a brilliant story teller and, with decades of the rock n roll life under his belt, plenty of hilarious stories to tell. From the flatulence and "trouser incidents" inherent from the poor diet of the gigging muso, to the scrapes with authority touring the old Eastern Europe to accidentally showing a porn version of Snow White in a German family restaurant, all of the perils and pitfalls of rock n' roll are here, plus some new ones he invented.
Although "grumpy" in the title, the book is anything but (it's just a cash-in title to link with Wakeman's Grumpy Old Men apperances). Frankly Wakeman was always slightly too fun to fit totally into Yes and the rest of the uber-serious Prog Rock movement, which is why he ended up accidentally ordering a take-out curry during a gig which he ate in one of the "dull bits"!
Hilarious, with plenty of genuinely laugh out loud bits. Highly recommended.
