Somebody to Love (Rock Stars in Disguise: Tryp) is a great book. Our editors rated it with a top 5 stars.
It’s one of the rules of the rock and roll road: the musicians snub the roadies because they’re uncultured grunts, and the roadies hate the musicians because they’re spoiled brats.
Meet Tryp, the rock star drummer for Killer Valentine, the hottest band on the planet. He's young, he's rich, and his whirlwind life of liquor, women, and screaming crowds is perfect, just as long as he never sobers up.
Elfie Tilsi has been a pyrotechnics technician (don’t call her a “roadie.”) with the breaking-out rock band Killer Valentine for two years, ever since she ran away from home.
The musicians of Killer Valentine are starting to crack from the unrelenting stress and limitless excess of touring. When the band manager tasks Elfie with babysitting Tryp, she tries being a little kind to him and quickly discovers that his problems are far deeper than the rock and roll lifestyle.
Can the love of a rock drummer and the pyromaniac roadie survive?
INCLUDES: special edition includes the hard-to-find short story “Alwaysland,” where we meet Xan Valentine, the lead singer of Killer Valentine, and a new Note From Blair Babylon!
