This is the hilarious and candid chronicle of when the unheard-of Unband got to drink, fight and play loud music with 80s metal bands like Def Leppard and Dio years after their heyday. Equal parts This is Spinal Tap and Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, this has it all. Unband bassist Michael Ruffino takes us along an epic, hedonistic tour of a surrealistic American landscape that includes mute Christian groupies and unironic headbangers. This is perfect backstage pass proving that sex, drugs, and getting drunk with rock stars may not be everything, but it's better than going acoustic.

One of my ex-bandmate's favorite books. Fun and somewhat Hunter Thompson-esque in places. Read full review

About the author (2004)

Michael Ruffino spent his early years moving around the suburbs of Boston. His employment and academic history consists mostly of underwhelming achievements followed by managed exits. He did at one point form the most notorious rock band in modern history, unbeknownst to most of the world. He lives in Williamsburg, Massachusetts, the best way he knows how.
