After ten years playing in bar bands, five years tour managing, and 20+ years at a major record label working with a hundred or so rock stars and newbies, I accumulated a lot of knowledge about what works and what doesn't in the areas of songwriting, live performance, stage coaching, and career moves in the music biz.
That's what this book is all about.
Stuff that you will find nowhere else. Backed up by true stories about rock ‘n roll stars on tour as told by some guy who happened to be there at the time. In an era where records, radio, press and TV don’t matter as much anymore, songwriting and live performance are everything. And the art and craft of songwriting and performing haven’t changed.
That’s what this book is all about.
