During the last 6 months or so, many of the artists that I have enjoyed listening to throughout the years have announced Australian tours. This is great from an entertainment perspective (although not so much from a financial one), but it also makes me wonder just how much I know about all of these bands/ independent artists that I’m paying to see. While I love listening to their music, I sometimes wonder about their lives behind the scenes- particularly those who try to keep their lives private and out of the spotlight.
Do you like to read biographies of bands or artists before you see them live? Do you own books about particular people who you have seen or want to see in concert? Are they picture/ coffee table- type books or more biographical? Do you collect books of this musical genre?
