Anything Goes by Madison Smartt Bell

Anything GoesRecommended by Jeff in Technical Services…

Jeff’s synopsis:
Jesse Melungeon plays bass in the bar band called Anything Goes, which unfortunately is falling apart.  While on a never ending tour of dive bars and one night stands, Jesse tries to hang on through the endless grind of the tour to re-establish a relationship with his father, start a relationship with the new lead singer, and improve as a musician.

He says:
I used to see a lot of bar bands and had always wondered what life may be like for them, traveling around together trying to make enough to get to the next town. This book gives some insight into that life and into the hearts and minds of its band members: Jesse, the bass player and Perry, the group’s leader, as well as others.
