Prompted by TJ it's good to see that December's Record Collector has such a good positive review of this book - maybe Santa will have a few to deliver!

Cheers

my review

So here's a little review by me:

TV's tourdiaries have always been a pleasure to read when he puts them on the website. So of course, having many of them in one book is very enjoyable. For me it's a great read, it's all about how TV's life is like on the road. There's so many nice anecdotes, often I have to smile or laugh. It's very funny at times, but TV does mention the tougher things as well, struggling with promoters, soundmen etc.  :roll:
Also his experiences are different, e.g. when DTH ask him to play a few shows with them, he gets first class hotels etc., while on the other hand TV often has to stay on a floor somewhere with a sleeping bag...

I do love sentences like:
Quote
...I'm told that I have a room of my own on the top floor, the chance to catch up on some sleep. Except we open a bottle of wineand sit around chatting until the sun comes up

 :lol:
Just around the corner and miles away...

Covered in cat sick and dog fleas!

I've only jsut started reading it, TJ got me a copy for my birthday, but I had to catch up with my uni course reading first before i could start.

But i have to say i love it, so honest, so well written and yes in place damn bloody funny!

I've been telling my housemates about some of the stories and now I catch them reading the book when I come home!

Yeah, I did and do plan to write a German review for amazon.de, but at the moment I don't have much time and probably will do this later when I visit the site to order something anyway.

Part 2 will be online (at first, I guess). Maybe later these online diaries will again be put together in one book...

I just finished it- and I love it!
It's written really great and at some parts I had a real good laugh because he  
seems to notice everything around him and comments it so great. Sometimes just in short sentences but there is so much truth in it.

Can't wait for volume 2.

Berry Picker - I remember that anecdote :!:
Are you his cousin or what?  :wink:   :lol:

Anyway, today I unexpectedly found my inspiration - I had the idea how to start my amazon review (1st sentence is often important), so I typed it, hopefully it'll be online soon!  8)
