Fun read! For years I had regretted not seeing Midnight Oil live when I could, even though I was glad for Pete Garrett's success in his new career as a politician. So naturally I was thrilled to hear they were reunited and touring again in 2017. Last week I caught their final North American show (in Minneapolis) on this new tour, and it left me wanting more. Unlike some other bands of a similar age that I've seen lately, they were as sharp as ever. I can't wait for new material and another tour to follow. They are seriously one of my favorite bands of all time.

Pete's book being rather expensive and difficult to obtain in the US, I was thrilled to find this gem for a very low price on Kindle. Five minutes into the show it had been obvious to me how Rob was a linchpin of the band - not just in maintaining rhythm, but truly its soul. That's not always (or usually) true of the drummer, so I was eager to hear his perspective. The book is loosely organized around the Oils' late-2001 North American tour, but it uses that structure to jump around in time and take in memorable moments from the band's entire history. It's quite well-written, with great insights into the life of a touring band, an outsider's perspective on life in the US, and snapshots of lots of different cities where they performed. Best quote: "better to be a complaint band than a compliant band." YES! That is why I love these guys. I'm accustomed to putting up with a few grammatical and typographical errors when I read a low-priced Kindle book, but this book had refreshingly ZERO errors. Why, it's a real book! Enjoy.

Loved the book. In addition to being a great musician, fabulous drummer, and co-founder of Midnight Oil, Rob Hirst proves to be quite the writer.

He takes you back to the seminal days of his music career with Midnight Oil and relates his concerns for the band as they begin their first big tour of America right after one of our nation's most tragic events back in September of 2001. But their worries were unfounded, as a resilient American audience welcomes The Oils music and message with open arms.

As they say down in Oz, 'this one's a ripper!' A highly recommended e-book.

Well written and funny. Great insights into the drudge of touring the vast United States. Lots of history bits, about the band and places they've played. Thoroughly enjoyed it!

Awesome read. Just saw them in 2017 and they are still killer. We'll written "life on the road" with good cultural observations.

Just the fact that Rob Hirst is a world class drummer and songwriter gets 3 stars. He demonstrates a great eye for historical and cultural detail through various North American cities during a post 911 Midnight Oil tour. It was an easy read with a nice pace. Sure I would have liked more detail on the songwriting process ect, but that's my interest. I saw the Oils on this tour and they went out rocking!

Big fan of Midnight Oil, but the book works for me on more levels than that. Outsider observations from a rough time of history offer reflective value. Listened to the song that started each chapter as I read that chapter... Added quite a bit to the experience. Recommended.

Excellent book. If you're a Midnight Oil fan, you've gotta read it. It has a perfect mix of staying in the moment and going back in time on Rob's journey.
