Rather original way of interviewing musicians; a chance to see some of them in a different light.
Good stories as well.

It is worth mentioning that quite a few of artists really left impression of rather dull personality, but what can I judge after seeing one picture and reading its description.
Nevertheless, it's interesting to realize how important tour bus or first rehearsal room (mostly garage :) ) might be.

This is a highly amusing collection of drawings, musings, and memories from members of a diverse range of bands including (to name just a few)Coldplay, Death Cab for Cutie, Franz Ferdinand, Hoobastank, Interpol, The Killers, Muse, and We Are Scientists. Nino Keller of The Caesars used crayons to depict a near-fatal accident involving the band's tour bus; complete with cute little woodland animals, oncoming traffic, and even a representation of "Mr. Death."
