4.0 out of 5 stars
An enjoyable read, March 24 2005
I found this book to be an enjoyable recount of Mr. Bidini's personal experiences wallowing through the mindfield of trying to "make it" as a Canadian rock band. It isn't a point by point "How To" guide but is, instead (as other reviews have pointed out)a form of memoirs.
Just before reading this book, I read Bidini's "On A Cold Road". For those of you who have read the "Road" book, you'll find a bit of repetition in some of his anecdotes here. If fact almost "cut" and "paste" in some cases or very close paraphrasing. However, there is plenty of fresh material about working in recording studios, radio play, touring and other experiences to make it interesting and enjoyable.
Mr. Bidini writes with a casual, almost conversational tone spiced with lots of wit. If you liked "On A Cold Road", you'll enjoy this book.
