An all-access pass to what goes on backstage, onstage, and on the way to the stage. What’s a tour bus like? What are the band members saying to each other on stage? Exactly how much sex, how many drugs, how much rock ‘n’ roll are we talking here? The Musician’s Guide to the Road answers all these questions and many, many, many more. Both a valuable primer designed to prepare young musicians for life on the road and an entertaining memoir of the touring life written by a seasoned musician, this is the book that reveals the scene behind the scenes. Chapters focus on preparing to tour, touring by van and bus, the day of the show, the afternoon before the show, the night of the show, and the morning after, life on the road, and the end of the road.
Susan Voelz, a violinist and songwriter,has performed with Poi DogPondering, giant sand, and AlejandroEscovedo, among many others. Hersolo recordings include 13 Ribs andSummer Crashing. She lives inChicago.
