The description:
Quote:
Imagine you are on a tour bus, the miles whistling away beneath you as you sleep. Tomorrow you will wake up in downtown Somewhere. It doesn’t matter. All the skylines look the same. Time is only marked by events. The world is on a first-name basis with you.

But you…you barely even know yourself. There are those who give in completely to the idea of what it means to be famous. And those who can’t ever seem to leave the past behind. Life is a deep and contemplative story stuck on repeat—love, loss, self-destruction, self-discovery.

If you could go back to the way things were before you made it…would everything still be gray?

I would've preferred an autobiography, but there's a chance I'll pick this up.

Don't bother. I'm a huge FOB fan and have always supported Pete with whatever projects he was working on/defended his actions, but this book is pretty terrible. Was lucky (unlucky?) enough to receive an advanced copy of this through work and it's just not good at all. Was really a struggle to make it through the entire book and not just chuck it to the side.

eh... that's a sad thing to hear especially with it being only 240 pages long...

I was listening to Cork Tree for the first time in a long time, and realized how much I like it.

Let's nip this in the bud before it even starts: your 50 Shades of Grey joke is tired and not funny. Stop it.

Yeah, I was really disappointed as well, and I didn't really have that big of expectations going in to it. I don't know, maybe I'm just being a snotty, high-brow English major, but the only thing I took away from this book is that Pete reaaaaaaally likes his nautical-theme metaphors. Yeah, just not good.

wish these guys would get back in the studio and put out another album instead of all the garbage they collectively have put out since the hiatus.
