Product description


"Starred Review! 33 Percent Rockstar is an entertaining, honest look at the trials and tribulations most musicians endure -- and still fail to attain their dreams. Yet it also illustrates why the dream remains alive." -- BlueInk Reviews

"10 out of 10! Scott has a life story that is truly one of a kind. His experiences, successes, and failures while playing with multiple bands and band members are relayed in a manner that is honest, amusing, and often poignant. His personal imperfections and emotional tumult, along with the often gritty backdrop of the music world, allow for this story to be both relatable and compelling." -- The Booklife Prize

"Sterling (Teenage Degenerate, 2016) recounts his misadventures while struggling to attain rock 'n' roll stardom. The book details a blur of concerts and van trips, all soaked in beer, as life on the road brought the young musicians only privation and sleeplessness. Sterling has a natural, easygoing prose style that suits his tale of the difficulties of making it in the music world or when analyzing his own failures, which he reveals with disarming frankness. One message, though, emerges from these recollections--that the author's love of music never wavered. An earnest elegy to the band life." -- Kirkus Reviews
