Welcome to the jungle! And the jungle is LOUD!
The first female roadie, for bands like The Who and AC/DC, writes her memoir. Of course, it’s chock full of sex, drugs and rock and roll. But, also, it shows her courageous battle for equity at a time when women were anything but equal in most men’s eyes.
From her start as an unpaid roadie with a French tightrope walker’s troop, Tana, who was only fifteen, would a year later be a roadie with the newly formed band AC/DC. And the wonders she would see!
Loud is an interesting and entertaining look behind the curtain at many influential 1970s through the 1990s rock acts with some stops at a riot or two. The book would be an excellent choice for music fans, or anyone interested in being a roadie themselves. 3.5 stars!
Thanks to Harper 360, ABC Books and NetGalley for a digital review copy of the book.
