Recommended Reading - "The Road Most Traveled"

As we have learned over the years Chuck Ragan is all about camaraderie, he is all about bringing people together and hearing about their experiences. From touring with his band Hot Water Music to headlining the Revival Tour this past year, Ragan has become one of the elder statesmen of modern punk and rock. So, it should come as no surprise when in September he released, The Road Most Traveled, a book about life on the road as put together and curated by Ragan and featuring stories from Frank Turner, Brian Fallon of Gaslight Anthem, Tim McIlrath of Rise Against, Jim Ward of At the Drive-In / Sparta / Sleepercar, Franz Nicolay, Greg Anntonito of Bouncing Souls, Nuno Pereira of A Wilhelm Scream and many more. 

This book is a collection of stories, experiences, words of wisdom and most of all why the fan and the road is just as vital to an artists craft as recording a song. From heartbreaking tales to stories of great heights, The Road Most Traveled is a book for anyone who is looking to start a band and looking to get on the road and realize the problems they may face, someone else has already faced them.
