Billboard Books
Tales from the Rock n Roll Highway takes readers backstage, behind the scenes, into the studio, on the road, into the minds, and out on the street with anecdotes revealing what really goes on in living the rock and roll life.

Included are some of the most famous names in popular music, among them Gram Parsons, The Doors, David Crosby, Lynyrd Skynyrd, the Sex Pistols, Three Dog Night, Jefferson Airplane, Janis Joplin, the Allman Brothers Band, and many, many more.

Tales told by musicians at all levels of experience, their roadies, radio personalities, music journalists, tour managers, and fans offer fascinating accounts of what really goes on during road trips and tours, as well as pranks, diversions, and outlandish behavior experienced through attempts at overcoming the tedium and loneliness of the rock and roll life. In their own words, artists tell their side of the story about their daily lives, the drawbacks to touring, the opportunities they are afforded, and how it all shakes out and what it all means to them.

Divided into chapters, with sections within each introduced by the author's narration, the book includes stories about studio experiences, record company interaction, macabre behavior, surprising encounters, groupies, drug and alcohol excesses, performances, bus tales, fan encounters, concert promoters, once-in-a-lifetime shows, and off-hand evaluations of other rockers.

Warning: Readers of this book may learn more than they ever cared to know about their favorite, or least favorite, artists.
