A tour diary of life on the road with one of Minnesota’s greatest bands—with nearly 100 never-before-seen photographs
A raucous tour diary of rock ’n’ roll in the 1980s, Lemon Jail puts us in the van with the Replacements in the early years. Bill Sullivan—the young and reckless roadie—shows what it’s like to keep the band on the road and the wheels on the van, and when to just close your eyes and hit the gas.
As a guy who has had the privilege of being regaled by Billy's rock ’n’ roll tales for years, I can attest to the authenticity of his stories. They may not all be accurate, but they are all true, which is more important. He is a real link to our punk rock legends of lore. Any fan of the Replacements or any of the ’80s left-of-dial bands will greatly appreciate this book.
