What a great, great book. Kinda heartbreaking, tremendously funny, superbly well-written. Joe the Demon bass player really got it right here...Great job, wish I would've heard of these guys back in the 90s but if I had then I guess this 5-star book wouldn't exist. In the world of Rn'R biographies this one I think is at the head of the pack even though you've probably never heard of the band "Watershed". As a person who's read many musician biographies both the famous & the less so, this book is definitely, definitely worth checking out...Take care

Disclosure: I know the author and shared a day job with Joe and, at one time or another, most of the band, fielding calls from Biggie when they couldn't get to work 'cause the van broke down. I saw this tale of rock and roll reality play out, and you probably have, too, in other cities, with other bands, other friends who you supported by attending late, weeknight club shows, buying CDs at the merch table, all the time wondering why such a great band, and nice folks, weren't getting airplay on every radio station in the country. Joe tells this story of music industry Joads without bitterness, invoking the spirit of his literary hero, Studds Terkel. Rock on, Watershed.
