This is your backstage pass to the hidden side of the music industry - the tantrums, the fights, the tensions, the indulgence, the sex, the alcohol, the drugs, the overdoses. The roadies see it all, and now they are sharing their secrets. Roadies are the unsung heroes of the Australian music industry. They unload the PAs and equipment, they set it all up, they make sure everything is running totally smoothly before, during and after the gigs. Then they pack everything up in the middle of the night, put it in the back of the truck and hit the road to another town - to do it all over again. They are there at the pre- and post-show parties. They silently bear witness to overdoses, the groupies, the obsessive fans. They are part of - and often organise - all the craziness that goes on behind the scenes of the concerts and pub gigs you go to. From The Rolling Stones to AC/DC, Bob Marley to Courtney Love, Sherbet to The Ted Mulry Gang, INXS to Blondie - these guys have seen it all.… (mehr)

This is an important book in that it tells stories from an often neglected side of rock music. There certainly are some incredible rock n roll tales. But it is primarily that, tales, in that it tells you things that happened, and who worked with who, etc. I know this is non-fiction, but I have to say it lacks atmosphere. A number of iconic venues are mentioned, but unless you've been there, there's no sense of what they're like. The work is constantly, and correctly, described as incredibly hard, and lack of sleep being normal, but there's not enough detail to feel it from the book.
Live music is more than sound, it's sights and smells. With some more detail, the places and people could have been brought to life a lot more.
Overall, I'm glad this exists, and I don't regret reading it. But maybe a doco TV series is what's needed to do these legends full justice. ( )
