Roadie: My Life on the Road with Coldplay
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.
