From the back cover: "Life On The Road captures the excitement, experimentation, and enthusiasm of rock's most explosive era. In this unforgettable memoir, Stuart (Dinky) Dawson takes us on the road with such rock and roll legends as the original Fleetwood Mac, The Byrds, Steely Dan, the Kinks, Joan Baez, Joni Mitchell, Lou Reed, the Mahavishnu Orchestra, Jeff Beck, B.B. King, and the J. Geils Band, among other stellar musical artists. Offering rare, personal, and often insightful glimpses into the unruly reality of life on the road, Dinky provides behind-the-scene views of such after-hours escapades as Fleetwood Mac's introduction to America by the Hell's Angels, as well as their involvement in the notorious Grateful Dead drug bust in New Orleans; life lived helter skelter in Los Angeles with Terry Melcher and The Byrds during the Charlie Manson murders; drawing extra amps from the electric chair at Sing Sing Prison for a Joan Baez concert; and traveling and recording with Lou Reed during the drug-fueled days of Berlin and Rock and Roll Animal."

"Remembering is one thing. Bringing back sordid and lurid tales of riotous, drug induced sexual escapades is quite another! Where are they?" -- John McVie (Fleetwood Mac)

The Foreward was written by Mick Fleetwood. The first four acknowledgements go to Mick Fleetwood, John McVie, Peter Green, and Clifford Adams (manager of Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac). There are five chapters devoted to Fleetwood Mac which are very funny. This book is a must for fans of the Peter Green / Mick Fleetwood / John McVie / Jeremy Spencer / Danny Kirwan line up of Fleetwood Mac.

"Providing fascinating profiles of musicians and bands ranging from the popular and influential Eric Clapton and Mike Bloomfield to lesser-known artists such as Bakerloo and Black Cat Bones, this collection spans a vibrant period in which blues music enjoyed a significant renaissance due largely to young white musicians who fused it with rock 'n' roll. Exhaustive searches of 1960s and 1970s rock journalism are combined with up-to-date personal interviews to create new, fuller pictures of the musicians who defined this genre, and new light is shed on the riveting dynamics that shaped and ultimately defined combustible groups such as the Yardbirds, Cream, and John Mayall's Bluesbreakers. Included are in-depth artist biographies, discographies, and discussions of the artists' critical and commercial impact."

This book lists substantial information about Fleetwood Mac, Chicken Shack, and John Mayall in its index. The forward is also written by former Fleetwood Mac bassist, Bob Brunning.
