Below is a review from https://taysinfinitethoughts.blog of 33 Percent Rockstar: Music, Heartbreak and the Pursuit of Rock Stardom from Colorado author Scott C. Sterling.
The book provides a lot of insight into the work and effort it takes to become a good musician or for chasing any dream for that matter. Scott knew what he wanted and he continued to chase it until he reached a point in his life where he knew it was time to move on. Although he technically didn’t reach 100 percent rock stardom, he still got to play with multiple bands in different genres and got to open for some bigger bands.
I love listening to music, but I also like learning about the people behind the music. This book was definitely a little different than your typical music biography or autobiography. This book was more like a story, kind of diary-ish, but not exactly. I enjoyed learning about the different bands he was a part of and all the things they had to go through. The best part about the book was seeing Scott go from someone he thought had no musical talent to becoming a pretty awesome bass player.
Scott had a dream of becoming a rockstar, so after learning to play the bass guitar he and his friend Jake auditioned for a band. Scott ended up playing in several different bands throughout several years, touring the country, recording a couple albums, but never really making it big. 33 Percent Rockstar is about Scott’s life as a struggling musician and his love for music. I recommend this book to anyone who likes learning about musicians and/or people in general.
