AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Andrew Mueller couldn't decide between being a rock journalist, travel writer or foreign correspondent, so he tries to be all three at once. Rock and Hard Places is a retrospective of his encounters over the past twenty years. Among his adventures, Andrew cracks America with Radiohead, wanders all over the shop with U2, and tunes into the music scene in bombed-out Sarajevo. He accidentally goes to war in Bosnia, watches Def Leppard play in a Moroccan cave, and tries to make sense of Gallipoli on Anzac Day. He's funny, unpredictable and occasionally makes a point.
