4200 gigs. 250 Film and TV song placements. 30 years in music. These are some of the bullet points in the resume of author/musician Bill Cinque. THE AMAZING ADVENTURES OF A MARGINALLY SUCCESSFUL MUSICIAN is an educational and entertaining look at the world of music.

Honest, insightful and often humorously brutal, Cinque speaks to the beginner, the seasoned pro, and the non-musician "civilian" in a unique and refreshing voice about the rehearsals, recordings and rejections in the life of a self-described "blue collar, working class musician."
