Author(s): Trevor Kelley
Trevor Kelley and Leslie Simon perfectly capture the excitement, absurdity, and obsessive passion of rock history buffs in this travel guide/indie music biography. Whether they're poking fun at hipsters in trucker hats, or offering a hilarious list of best and worst bands featuring washed-up celebrities, the authors' snarky, opinionated, and hilarious voices come through on every page. So whether you're a seasoned traveler who wants to visit all of these essential spots on a cross-country road trip, or an armchair music-lover who's content to let Trevor and Leslie do the legwork for you, this is a can't miss book.
"Simon ensures there's never a dull moment...Rob Dobi's spot-on illustrations appear throughout the book as the perfect complement to her enthusiastic and hilarious voice." -- Sacramento Book Review online
