Sure, sex, drugs and rock ‘n’ roll happen when bands are on the road. But being on tour also lets you really know a band.
Traveling with a band lets you know who they truly are. You swap secrets to stay awake during late night drives and grow strangely protective of each other when you’re accosted by side-of-the-highway weirdos.

These were my sleepless, chaotic and beautiful nights that I shared with bands that now have a special place in my heart. From the midwest, deep south and even just riding between NY boroughs, these were wild rides.
