9780061076060: Working Musicians: Defining Moments from the Road, the Studio, and the Stage

How does it feel to open for the Rolling Stones, to play Carnegie Hall or to sit in with Miles Davis? To perform solo before an arena of screaming, cheering fans? To travel for weeks on end with the same people, sleeping in a different city every night? To craft the perfect track in a high-tech recording studio? To struggle to write a #1 song when you're suffering from writer's block? Based on interviews with more than 100 players, this collection of incredible experiences and revealing truths about the world of the working musician describes all that and more.

Bruce Pollock's intimate conversations with such superstars as Bruce Springsteen, Harry Connick Jr., Gene Simmons, Jerry Garcia, Frank Zappa, Carole King, Keith Richards, Bruce Hornsby, Paul Simon, Donald Fagen, John Lee Hooker, Kool Mo Dee, Boyd Tinsley of the Dave Matthews Band, and others are as eye-opening as they are fascinating reading, and offer rare insight into a musician's career, from starting out to making it big.
