Legendary garage surf goofs the Phantom Surfers have drawn upon 20 years of experience and observation to provide the inside dope on the dopes of the world of rock: sound people, managers, booking agents, record labels, other musicians, and every weasel, shark, and thieving magpie in the music industry menagerie.
Although this is indeed a riotously funny work, it contains a great deal of truth and wisdom. Consider these true stories: We know of a young lady who received an advance copy ofRock Stardom for Dumbshitsand immediately abandoned her futile hopes of achieving rock stardom.
