At twenty-eight, Jenny Troanni has decided to become the rock goddess she was always meant to be. Items on her new to-do list include: 1) Quit going-somewhere copywriting job and get going-to-band-practice job. 2) Break up with Hootie and the Blowfish-lovin' boyfriend. 3) Hang out in skanky bars. Meet musicians. 4) Cash in pension and buy kickass guitar amp. 5) Team up with sex-crazed guitar genius/best friend Lucy Stover Hanover II. After auditioning every musician in the greater Los Angeles area---including the deluded, deranged, and underaged---Jenny finds the perfect lineup, and 60-Foot Queenie is born. But while reveling in free tequila shots, autograph hunters, and other perks of minor stardom, Jenny realizes with a shock that 60-Foot Queenie is poised to become even bigger than she imagined. Suddenly, she's learning the real lessons of Rock and Roll High School, including the danger of trusting a record company executive who ties a ponytail in his goatee, and the ten telltale signs your bass player is living in your practice space. Part diary, part crash course in rock stardom, Don't Sleep with Your Drummer is a hilarious, no-holds-barred guide through the pleasures and pitfalls of the music industry---from the beginning to the bitter end, and back again.

Broke and broken-hearted don’t need to be your destiny. Neither do flat sales or frustrated teams. These bleak outcomes stem from doing what’s always been done, but this book is for those who believe in different. Regardless of whether you are alone or the leader of a major organization, you are that person who simply cannot shake the belief that doing the same things you’ve always done won’t work anymore. Here’s the good news. It’s not too late. In fact, you’re early—you’re thinking about this now. You can still avoid the “squeeze the blood from the turnip” mindset and the fear of what’s coming next quarter. Different has and always will be the differentiator for individuals, ideas, and industries. Are you a different maker? Do you criticize by creating? Do you see things others don't? You play an essential role, now more than ever. Different Drummer is for those who never want to be the same.

From the story of the drummer who had to fly separately from the rest of Oasis because they thought he was bad luck, to the drummer who drummed his way out of prison Never have so many famous drummers been gathered together in one place--this is the ultimate collection of stories about legendary drummers, and they are guaranteed to be stories fans have not heard before. Drummer and writer Spike Webb has spent more than three years meeting fellow drummers in bars, clubs, and cafes, shooting the breeze for a couple of hours, and extracting anecdote after anecdote for posterity. This is truly a labor of love--and somebody had to do it. The stories here are about drummers like Nick Mason of Pink Floyd, Don Powell of Slade, Adam Facek of Babyshambles, Steve White who worked with Paul Weller, Topper Headon of the Clash, Woody of Madness, and world-class session players like Toto drummer Simon Phillips. Sometimes hilarious, sometimes poignant, but always entertaining, this is the ultimate insight into what it really means to be a drummer, and an explanation, at last, for what really makes someone do a 20 minute solo.
