"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

He bought a guitar and assumed music would just come out of the guitar.
He thought 3 to 4 practices a week was an INTENSE schedule. Any one I know who was good couldn't put the instrument down.
Playing in a bar band for beer is not success
Yes you were in a bar band. Even though you played original music your purpose was to sell beer.
Want to know how much people enjoy your music? Play a show with no alcohol and let it be known there is no alcohol and see how many "Fans" show up to hear you.
The main goal for him throughout the book was to get drunk. Over and over that story is repeated along with dealing with hangovers the next day. Wanted to live the ROCK STAR life style but not put in the work.. It comes as no surprise he was into punk rock. The whole premise of the genre is getting good at your instrument is for losers.
Don't know if the author will ever read this but judging from the book you have a drinking problem. You might want to take a look at yourself. Or not. It's your life.
