about

From sleazy motels rooms and four-star suites to 'giving' groupies and drugs and booze, On a Cold Road is a fascinating look into life on the road. It's an honest and humorous look at Rheostatic Dave Bidini's and other Canadian musicians' experiences on tour across the Great White North. Bidini first got the idea for this book during the winter of 1996 when the Rheostatics opened for the Tragically Hip's cross-Canada tour and experienced a level of touring that could only be called luxurious. The bands stayed in deluxe hotels, drank expensive wine and even had a chiropractor on call. This didn't seem to mesh with stories of road life that he'd heard - and with his own early experiences playing in raunchy bars and staying in squalid hotels - so he interviewed musicians such as Rush, Triumph, Goddo, Kim Mitchell and Randy Bachman to get a full history of Canadian rock tours.
