The music business is filled with lots of contradictions: lots of highs and lots of lows. I've been down every road imaginable on my journey through it and lived to tell it all. My two sons, Vinnie Paul the Brick Wall and Dimebag Darrell were the founding members of two of the world's greatest rock groups, PANTERA and DAMAGEPLAN. I mentored them from day one and the story of their success is relayed in this book. As you turn its pages you will discover HOW TO GET YOU (or your band) A RECORD DEAL -- HOW DIMEBAG DARRELL FOUND HIS SOUND -- HOW BUCK OWENS CAME TO RECORD PLAY TOGETHER AGAIN, AGAIN and THE INS AND OUTS OF MUSIC CITY USA. Music makes some people rich and leaves others destitute. Talent has thing to do with it and yet it has everything to do with it. If you're in a new and restless rock band and want to get on with making your first million bucks, this book will open your eyes to a world you don't even suspect and would never imagine. If you've got your sights set on being a NASHVILLE STAR, this book will be your best friend. Every page is an eye-opener once you set foot inside MUSIC CITY USA. In either case, OVER MY LEFT SHOULDER will teach you what you need to kw and take you where you want to go.
