Product Description

Publisher: Anova Books

Author: Matt McGinn

Stuffed with insightful and authoritative tour stories about daily roadie duties, this is an insider's guide to what it means to live and work with global superstars in the world of rock 'n' roll. This memoir covers the job, the road, the gigs, the band, the relationships, the fame, the failing equipment, and the cold beers after a great show. As Coldplay moves from club gigs to arenas and stadiums worldwide, Matt goes with them; faking it as a band member on U.S. talk shows, flirting with Kylie, saving a life on a French motorway, and even pitching in with the odd guitar riff in the studio. Tales of hurricanes and heat waves, helicopter chases and private jets, plectrum hunters and projectiles all come together as Matt explains in his unique way—and regardless of the mountain (and gear) to move—that the show must always go on.
