<DIV></DIV>&gt; 
<DIV></DIV>&gt;Hi All, 
<DIV></DIV>&gt; 
<DIV></DIV>&gt;Found this info on Pan McMillians website about Robs book due to be 
<DIV></DIV>&gt;published on the 1st May. Sounds like a great read. Especially the 
<DIV></DIV>&gt;last chapter. 
<DIV></DIV>&gt; 
<DIV></DIV>&gt;Cheers, 
<DIV></DIV>&gt;Jane 
<DIV></DIV>&gt; 
<DIV></DIV>&gt;Willieís Bar &amp; Grill (being the bandís hangout after gigs - their 
<DIV></DIV>&gt;tour managerís hotel room) charts the US tour for Midnight Oil's 
<DIV></DIV>&gt;most recent album Capricornia; a tour that took place directly after 
<DIV></DIV>&gt;September 11. Taken from notes Rob made in his diary every day, it 
<DIV></DIV>&gt;details how ordinary Americans appear to be coping after the 
<DIV></DIV>&gt;catastrophic events of that day. In amongst this more serious side, 
<DIV></DIV>&gt;thereís a great dose of humour - stories about the characters the 
<DIV></DIV>&gt;band meets, the places they go, some of the gigs (good and bad) they 
<DIV></DIV>&gt;performed, what itís like to be home, and personal portraits of the 
<DIV></DIV>&gt;members of one of the most respected rock bands in Australiaís 
<DIV></DIV>&gt;history. 
<DIV></DIV>&gt; 
<DIV></DIV>&gt;Shortly before finishing this book, however, Peter Garrett, the 
<DIV></DIV>&gt;charismatic lead singer of the band, decided to call it a day. In a 
<DIV></DIV>&gt;revealing final chapter, Rob talks about this decision and what it 
<DIV></DIV>&gt;means for a band thatís been together for so long. 
<DIV></DIV>&gt;
