For Those About to Rock: A Road Map to Being in a Band by Dave Bidini

Playing in a rock band is the stuff of dreams. What is the reality? Dave Bidini, rhythm guitarist with the Rheostatics and acclaimed author of On a Cold Road, knows firsthand. In this wise, witty, and often irreverent book, he tackles the questions that any kid with a penchant to be on stage has asked. How do you decide what to play? How do you deal with tensions among the musicians? What happens when one person becomes more popular than the others? How do you get to gigs, and what do you wear?

Bidini handles his material with honesty and authority. From the serious considerations to the frivolous issues, Bidini takes young readers through forming a band, practices, performing, and the business of show business. Interspersed with advice and observations are hilarious anecdotes pulled from his own experience and the experiences of musicians he knows.

This is a sure-fire winner for all young musicians, even if their instrument of choice is the air guitar and their only venue is their shower stall.

For Those About to Rock (We Salute You)

Stand up and be counted For what you are about to receive We are the dealers We'll give you everything you need Hail hail to the good times 'Cause rock has got the right of way We ain't no legend, ain't no cause We're just livin' for today. We rock at dawn on the front line Like a bolt right outta the blue The sky's a light with a guitar bite Heads will roll and rock tonight. For those about to rock, we salute you For those about to rock, we salute you For those about to rock, we salute you, yes we do For those about to rock, we salute you Oh, salute! We're just a battery for hire with the guitar fire Ready and aimed at you Pick up your balls and load up your cannon For a twenty-one gun salute. For those about to rock, fire!

While Back in Black was infused with the energy and spirit of paying tribute to Bon Scott , it became apparent on the follow-up that the group really did miss Scott more than it initially indicated. And the band itself slowed down the tempo frequently, sounding less aggressive and inspired. There is still some decent material here -- the title track, for example, which became a concert staple with cannon-firing sound effects. AllMusic relies heavily on JavaScript.
