Touring and Mental Health can really help us all navigate the darker moments and the bumps in the road out on tour. The insights, wisdom and strategies from the mental health and medical experts, the tour crew, and musicians in this book are invaluable. It should be the first thing we all pack when we head out on the road.’ Philip Selway, Radiohead ‘This book should be a compulsory purchase for anyone who spends time on the road (or sends others out there). It canadd decadesto a career, give wisdom to the most exhausted mind, and offer encouragement to every burdened heart.’ James Ainscough, CEO Help Musicians UK ‘The perfect book at the perfect time.’Marty Hom, tour manager for Fleetwood Mac, Shakira, Beyoncé
