Killing Time: Short Stories from the Long Road Home
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.
