Abstract:
For a musician, killing time is an occupational hazard - hours and years slip by as you drive between towns, queue at airports, wait around at soundchecks and rest between tours. There?s a lot of time to kill. My first two books sought to unpack a troubled childhood and make sense of my crazy rock ?n? roll life. The stories in this collection are about what happened in between - in the downtime before gigs or during recording sessions, while travelling in remote places, hanging out with other musicians, or just quietly going about day-to-day life. Little things that took place along the way, on the long road home. Tales of adventure, misadventure, love and loss - this collection of non-fiction short stories from the Australian rock legend turned writer is vintage Jimmy. Outrageous, witty, warm and wise, Killing Time shares more than 40 yarns reflecting an epic life - from an encounter with a soul legend in Memphis, a night in a haunted studio in upstate New York and a doomed haircut in Thailand, to a madcap misunderstanding in a Japanese ski resort and an all-too-revealing appearance for a Sydney charity.
