"The Road To Almost" recounts Darryl Rhoades' improbable but true journey from a boyhood bordering on delinquency to crisscrossing the country with the theatrical Hahavishnu Orchestra, one of the most critically acclaimed satirical groups of the 1970s, to his later years as an entertainer in comedy clubs.
Along the way, Rhoades opens for the Sex Pistols, sits on Frank Zappa's lap, plays drums with Chuck Berry, Jerry Lee Lewis, and Buck Owens, performs satirical punk while standing on Iggy Pop's face, survives bar fights and gunfights, travels with a drug dealer with two suitcases of hash, learns the art of songwriting from legendary songwriter Doc Pomus (Viva Las Vegas, Save The Last Dance For Me) and showers hundreds of burger buns onto unsuspecting record company executives to celebrate his hit "Burgers From Heaven."
The book is a fascinating look at Rhoades' career and is a consistently entertaining read.
