Roadie by Howard Massey

A tale of sex, drugs, and rock 'n' roll.

Friendship and betrayal.

Journey and redemption.

A band torn apart by a manipulative manager. A rock star gone missing. An international maelstrom that ranges from the glitz of L.A. to the seedy underbelly of Amsterdam, from the slopes of St. Moritz to the forbidding Scottish Highlands.

Inspired by the true story of Rolling Stones founding member Ian Stewart, fired by the group's first manager because "he didn't look like a rock star," ROADIE vividly captures all the trials, tribulations, and rites of passage musicians go through as they climb the ladder of success, as well as exposing the cruel realities of life in the fast lane.
