About the Author:

Graham Forbes is a musician and the author of Rock and Roll Mountains. He divides his time between Scotland and Longboat Key, Florida.

Review:

"Graham's writing is refreshing [and about] the life and not the myths of rock and roll . . . he captures for the reader what they can only imagine the lifestyle is really like . . . not all fun and games . . . except when it's fun and games!"  —Paul Barrere, guitarist, Little Feat

"With a keen eye for the absurd, Graham has an uncanny knack of stirring a range of emotions within a single story, but mostly, it's just laugh-out-loud funny!"  —Onnie McIntyre, Average White Band



"Graham reports this world from his own unique lens—writing from the perspective of everyman, with a personal insight only he possesses. I wish I could have described a touring band's experience so succinctly."  — John Wheeler, Hayseed Dixie



"Excellent. Compelling. A great read. I love the way you portray the band. It's electric."  —Scott Ian, Anthrax



"If Bill Bryson could play guitar, this is how it would sound!"  —Tommy Cunnigham, Wet Wet Wet



"Some gloriously-written tales of excess, sadness and glory (think Bill Bryson or Nick Hornby, but without the smug cleverness). The kind of book you'll read aloud to people. Required holiday reading."  —Guitar & Bass Magazine



"Musician and writer Graham Forbes takes off around the world, hitching rides on rock stars' tour buses and the like, searching for 'characters' to talk to for his cracking new book."  —The Herald



"An incredibly entertaining book—would make a great road movie. I highly recommend it, really makes you feel you are on the tour bus."  —Gerry Ryan, RTE, Ireland
