The 10 Rules Of Rock And Roll

Robert Forster

The 10 rules of rock and roll are:

  • 1. Never follow an artist who describes his or her work as 'dark'
  • 2. The second-last song on every album is the weakest
  • 3. Great bands tend to look alike
  • 4. Being a rock star is a 24-hour-a-day job
  • 5. The band with the most tattoos has the worst songs
  • 6. No band does anything new on stage after the first 20 minutes
  • 7. The guitarist who changes guitars on stage after every third number is showing you his guitar collection
  • 8. Every great artist hides behind their manager
  • 9. Great bands don't have members making solo albums
  • 10. The three-piece band is the purest form of rock and roll expression

REVIEWS

"Forster is a fantastic writer: urbane, witty, blessed with an empathy for his fellow musicians that he translates into acute observations ("The Velvet Underground were the first band I ever heard who wrote songs better than they could play them") rather than a willingness to pull his punches." Alexis Petridis, The Independent

 

"... concision harnessed to a real understanding of what makes great art ..." Bill Black, Caught By The River
