Présentation de l'éditeur

Longtime Coldplay roadie Matt has taken almost every step with the band over a decade of world tours and 40 million (and counting) record sales. In this, his first book, he reveals what life is like behind the scenes at the pinnacle of rock n roll touring. As Coldplay move from club gigs to arenas and stadiums worldwide, Matt goes with them; faking it as a band member on US chat shows, flirting with Kylie, saving a life on a French motorway and even pitching in with the odd guitar riff in the studio. With a foreword from the band and exclusive photography by bassist Guy Berryman, Roadie provides the definitive, fascinating and often hilarious glimpse of backstage life. Tales of hurricanes and heat waves, helicopter chases and private jets, plectrum hunters and projectiles all come together as Matt in his own unique way tries to explain why, regardless of the mountain (and gear) to move, the show must always, always go on.

Biographie de l'auteur

Matt McGinn was born in rural South Devon in 1965 where he lived until his family moved to London five years later. A music fan from an early age, Matt played drums as a small child but switched to electric guitar at age 10 and fell immediately in love with it. His first gig as a punter was The Kinks at The Rainbow, Finsbury Park in 1972, followed by The Clash at London's Lyceum Ballroom in late 78. Not long after, Matt formed a band with some lads at the school tuck shop and promptly lost interest in most lessons, leaving for London in 1984 where a life of odd jobs, bands and the dole awaited. More than a decade later, he found himself thanks to a random break from a mate roadieing for Sunderland band Kenickie, a post which, via various twists and turns, led him to Coldplay. Matt is currently the only full-time backline technician employed by the band during studio sessions and works as part of the core team on the road, where he has concentrated on looking after lead guitarist Jonny Buckland at almost every show since 2000. He was present during recording of the last two albums and has circled the globe more times than he cares to remember.

Huge Coldplay fan here, so no wonder that I loved this book. Would recommend for any music fan who wants to get an inside looking into the touring process from a Roadie to one of the best and biggest bands in the word. Funny, very easy to read, conversational writing style.

This book is an honest, forward and excellent piece of writing. Matt wrote in a relaxed conversational tone. He does not pimp Coldplay for drama or sizzle, but instead uses the backdrop of the band as a setting for the life and times of a roadie. Truly enjoyable!

Wonderful insight into the birth of a band and life of a roadie 12 septembre 2010

Matt has written an engaging novel that provides an informative, insightful look into life from every aspect of the world of a world-reknown musical act. The uncensored, unpolished voice adds a certain charm to the book that keeps you reading. I was allowed the opportunity of stepping backstage with Coldplay and crew, and I enjoyed every minute of it.

Hilarious!! 7 juillet 2010

I purchased this book because I'm a Coldplay fan but now I'm a Matt fan! I just received it last evening and am halfway through it already. It's an easy read that I couldn't put down. Matt's hilarious and it's obvious that he has a real affection and respect not only for his bosses but also his roadie cohorts. I realize he's probably pulled quite a few punches, he wants to stay employed after all, but it's still a wonderful inside look at the workings of a massive music tour and I am really enjoying it.

This was a fantastically written and absolutely witty account of a side of the musical industry that at least to me was a world unknown. It it so rare for people to find just one thing they are supposed to be doing in life, and Matt has been fortunate enough to be given the talent for two - a roadie for an uber-successful world touring band and an excellent writer. I'm not a books on tape type of reader, but his wit, charm and all out honesty makes me wish he could relay the book in person to me over a pint at a pub. He jumps right in with some quick history about himself, how he met the band and then before you know it POOF he's touring the world with Coldplay. He keeps an energetic pace throughout the book letting you in to discover the magnitude of preparation, production, exasperation and triumphs of a life on the road. To me, and probably a lot of fans, concert stages appear seamless as if they arrived by the snap of a finger, which clearly is not the case. What Matt details with the best humor is the extensive work and nerves involved for a touring band from the organization and set up of all moving parts of a stage and its equipment, to gauging the sound in an arena, the recommended way to sleep in a tour bus and the challenges of falling back into daily life when a tour has ended. Highly recommend. I did not want it to end. I hope he writes another about the Mylo tour!!!
