"So You Wanna Be A Rock & Roll Star?"

I read this great book written by the drummer of Semisonic, Jacob Shlicter


Semisonic gave us the hit "Closing Time" in the late 90s and this book is a great diary on the difficulties with the modern music industry and how this band struggled, had a hit and then put out another album which didn't fit one genre and wasn't played, and then were dropped from their recording contract.

The book is funny and very interesting. I highly recommend it.
...the gas chambers of Auschwitz, Treblinka, and Maidanek were ultimately prepared not in some ministry or other in Berlin, but rather at the desks and in the lecture halls of nihilistic scientists and philosophers.
