Recommended for: Semisonic and 90s alt rock fans
Read in July, 2008

Slichter was the drummer for the band Semisonic, and shares his take on going from nobody, to struggling musician, to giant star, to struggling, to nobody. He is charming and clever and gives a non-rock and roll star's version of rock and roll stardom. He's surprised by the political nature of the music biz and holds a fair amount of bitterness. He has some good stories and gives a great behind-the-scenes look at life in a band.
