Bands on the Road presents over 100 drawings, sketches and stories created by some of the worlds top indie stars while on tour. The people behind this collection, teacher Silke Leicher and music journalist Manuel Schreiner, asked various famous musicians to name their favourite situation and location. The first part of the book shows the detailed, colourful or dark little works of art that each artist made in response to that question. The second half of the book contains stories from the likes of John Duffy of The Coral, who remembers trips to the zoo with his dad, or Coldplays Guy Berryman reminiscing about getting lost in the Pompidou Centre. This idiosyncratic collection shows a totally different side to some of the music scenes biggest heroes, and will be seized on by music aficionados as well as graphic designers, artists and comic book fans.
