This was a fantastically written and absolutely witty account of a side of the musical industry that at least to me was a world unknown. It it so rare for people to find just one thing they are supposed to be doing in life, and Matt has been fortunate enough to be given the talent for two - a roadie for an uber-successful world touring band and an excellent writer. I'm not a books on tape type of reader, but his wit, charm and all out honesty makes me wish he could relay the book in person to me over a pint at a pub. He jumps right in with some quick history about himself, how he met the band and then before you know it POOF he's touring the world with Coldplay. He keeps an energetic pace throughout the book letting you in to discover the magnitude of preparation, production, exasperation and triumphs of a life on the road. To me, and probably a lot of fans, concert stages appear seamless as if they arrived by the snap of a finger, which clearly is not the case. What Matt details with the best humor is the extensive work and nerves involved for a touring band from the organization and set up of all moving parts of a stage and its equipment, to gauging the sound in an arena, the recommended way to sleep in a tour bus and the challenges of falling back into daily life when a tour has ended. Highly recommend. I did not want it to end. I hope he writes another about the Mylo tour!!!
