This book is essentially about "roadieing for dummies," not sex & drugs & rock & roll stars. This is about the roadie leaving his brain on the dressing room walls - walls the average sane person never gets to see. Heaps of intelligent sense of humor thrown against the wall, and only the best gets to stick. Open this book to any page, and you are guaranteed a laugh at the unique graffiti of the roadie, which dovetails beautifully with the tale of the roadie's life and trials. This is what it was like to be a roadie during the mega-tours of the "70s and "80s. Come, learn what it's like to put your very life on the line so the show can go on. This is the story of those who teach through laughter and give the gods a great run for their money.
