Book Club

Reading’s one of my favorite touring pastimes, and I’m starting an informal book club this time around. Oh yes! Fellow dweeds, please enlighten me as to what’s tickling your little gray cells, I’d love giving it a chance. No genre’s off limits, and I write this fully aware of the potentially terrifying consequences.

Book #1 of the Allen Stone Band Big Tour (ASBBT? The acronym’s too fetish-y, right?) is Elon Musk: Telsa, SpaceX, and the Quest for a Fantastic Future by Ashlee Vance. I’ve been wanting to read this biography for a while, then forgot about it, then remembered I’d forgotten about it after Elon controversially kinda-sorta smoked weed on the Joe Rogan Experience.

The only thing Elon and I have in common, sadly, is being awkward, white South African dudes - not a distinguished lineage, to say the least. But by revolutionizing how we think about basically everything (him), and having a singing voice that’s “better than expected” (me, but probably also him), perhaps we can offer a few redemptive drops in the bucket.

Send book recs, you so-and-so’s!
