Hilarious, revealing, outrageous, poignant, bawdy, and just outright entertaining, Tales from the Rock 'N' Roll Highway takes readers to places they have never been before - backstage, behind the scenes, into the studio, on the road, into the minds, and out on the street with some of the most famous names in music. Tales told by musicians at all levels of experience, their roadies, radio personalities, music journalists, tour managers, and fans offer fascinating accounts of what really goes on during road trips and tours, as well as the pranks, diversions, and outlandish behaviour that overcome the tedium and loneliness of the rock and roll life. In their own words, artists tell about their daily lives, the drawbacks to touring, and the opportunities they are afforded. Included are stories about studio experiences, record company interaction, macabre behaviour, surprising encounters, groupies, drug and alcohol excesses, performances, bus tales, fan encounters, concert promoters, and off-hand evaluations of other rockers.
