@suw that's very exciting - have you read 'Our Band Could Be Your Life'? - it's a history of the US punk/indie scene in the 80s, with some pretty hair raising Rollins stories :)

@Solobasssteve I have not! I'm not a massive Rollins fan, more just Rollins-curious.

@suw it's a pretty extraordinary book - really interesting as a prequel to every conversation ever about 'how hard it is for independent musicians how!' - newsflash, it was always fucking hard... The stories of these legendary bands playing to 3 people, or cancelling tours cos their van blew up, being ripped off and all having day jobs throughout their entire careers... it's strangely heartening :)
