About the Author

Jerry Fitzpatrick, a veteran bus driver in the entertainment touring industry, has compiled a valuable social history. He pulls no punches in telling his readers details about the music and musicians who changed our country -- of what goes on behind the scenes and of the sounds and behavior that altered a culture ready and eager for that change.

Fitzpatrick shares his observations in a conversational style laced with humor. Situations range from shocking to heart-warming, from Milli Vanilli to Barbara Mandrell. Through it all, Fitzpatrick shares his personal spiritual journey of redemption, forgiveness and grace. This journey is revealed through his stories of a life that led him from a troubled beginning, to his own experiences as a musician, and later his successful career on the road.

He has dared to capture the entertainment touring reality of the 20th century before it becomes a myth.

A must have for music lovers!! I have been waiting on this book to be released. I have heard many of the stories in person and with the way he has of verbally painting a picture I couldnt wait to read it. This book takes you on the amazing journey through the trials of one mans life. While the early years may have had some not so sweet moments the later years have taken him all over the North America. Jerry Fitzpatrick has the ultimate "office with a view" While behind the wheel of a prevost he drives on many sorts of tours and shares his experiences from backstage. Wether it was on an Eddie Murphy comedy tour or a Dave Matthews Band tour you can bet there are many stories to be told... this is not a tell all slammer... its is a wonderfully written very enjoyable story about all the places life can take you from the seat of a bus and beyond.
