Some brief overview of book

THE BEST WAY TO BECOME A ROCK STAR IS SOMETIMES THE WORST WAY TO BECOME A ROCK STAR Unruly and antagonistic, the Washington State rock trio Modest Mouse would seem like one of the least likely candidates for mainstream stardom Their often brilliant live performances sometimes collapsed into utter chaos. Their highly original, highly off-center songs ran as long as eleven minutes. And their leader managed to raise eyebrows among music writers, law officials .

. . and sometimes even his fans. But Modest Mouse persevered.

They didn't compromise their original, compelling musical style, nor did they lighten up on the attitude. They just waited for the world at large to catch up. In 2004, with the release of their smash single "Float On," it finally happened.

And it was worth the wait. For everybody. Journalist Alan Goldsher uncovers the strange, little-known details of Modest Mouse's rise from DIY indie heroes to platinum-selling, Grammy-nominated international superstars.

Goldsher also reveals the troubled background and fractured history of frontman Isaac Brock, a charismatic, cantankerous singersongwriter who has spent as much time avoiding the media as he has attempting to control it. Thoroughly researched, sharply funny, and filled with more than thirty rare photos, this unauthorized biography shows how Modest Mouse trashed the Behind the Music mold and created their own unique version of the rock 'n' roll, rags-to-expensive-rags success story.
