Ever wonder what it would be like to be a fly on the wall, following the life of an acoustic guitar icon?
The book, Still Inside: The Tony Rice Story is an inside look at an acoustic guitar great. Written by Tim Stafford and Caroline Wright. I bought this book a while ago and thought, “How cool, I finally get to learn more about one of my guitar heroes…” And then I read it and I realized I was in for so much more.
This book is not only a first hand account of Tony’s life (with segments written by himself), but it also has interviews and statements from some of the leading bluegrass players that are Tony’s friends as well. All in all this book is an insight into Tony’s life and how it parallels the history of bluegrass music in general. An amazing compendium of bluegrass history using Tony’s experiences as the tour guide.
