Diary of a Redneck Vampire: The True Story of a Rock and Roll Girl in a Boy's World
"Diary of a Redneck Vampire" is the journal of a 23 year-old female drummer, begun shortly after auditioning for the all-male heavy metal band "The Redneck Vampires" in 1993.
New to the band, Flo finds herself the only girl in a man's world, and she kept this diary to deal with her changing life. She captures the band's plight as they tour North America, living on stranger's couches, fighting among themselves, getting and losing record deals, and performing for just enough cash to make it to the next town. In addition to the pursuit of rock stardom, Flo also seriously studied the pagan religion of Wicca, and her spiritual life grows and changes as the pages turn. You will laugh at the idiocy, experience the raging, energetic crowds from the view of a drummer playing on stage, and recognize the struggle bands go through to meet their definition of success.
Full of the drugs, the drama, and the dreams of rock and roll, "Diary of a Redneck Vampire" pushes limits and exposes the ugly truth of the beginning stages of a band in their struggle to make it in the music industry, shared uniquely from the perspective of a female participant.
