Lemon Jail: On The Road With The Replacements
Publisher: Authors Republic
Date: May 2019
Duration: 3 hours 17 minutes
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.
