Book Review: "Memoir of a Roadie" by Joel Miller

Former roadie Joel Miller’s memoir is a saga of his years working for rock stars like Poison, Stone Temple Pilots, and Guns N’ Roses. Miller, who grew up in the L.A. area, and whose father was a Jaguar engine specialist, had plenty of brushes with Hollywood fame on his way into the music biz, hanging with Jay Leno, working as a gofer on movies including one with his teenage crush Erika Eleniak. Yes, there are stories of sex, drugs, and rock & roll, but the book is best when recounting the day-to-day world of a roadie.
