Jeff Mann

Have you ever dreamed of making it in the music business? Jeff Mann did. To make that dream a reality you have to be ALL IN, sleeping, eating and breathing rock ‘n’ roll 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. From playing in local bands to working as a roadie around the world for bands like KISS, Alice Cooper and Megadeth, and on tours with Metallica, AC/DC and Guns and Roses, his debut book "ALL IN: How To Become An Overnight Rock 'N' Roll Roadie Success In Just 20 Years" tells the story of what it’s really like backstage, onstage and on the tour buses of the biggest names in the music business.

Jeff fled the ice and snow of upstate NY in 1992. After 10+ years traveling around the world as a roadie for touring rock bands, he now writes about rock ‘n’ roll, current events, politics and the world around us...from his own warped perspective.

In his spare time he referees roller derby and enjoys reading comic books, tattoos, beer, travel, yoga and spending time with his wife and children. He is a recovering drummer currently living in Tucson, Arizona.
