A new biography promising to tell the ‘inside story’ of now-defunct Australian rock monoliths Powderfinger is in the works.
Mess and Noise reports that this first authorised biography was written by the band with journalist Dino Scatena. The book is called Footprints, and will be published through Hachette on November 8, in time for Christmas.
The book will feature unseen photographs and charts the band’s progress from high school friends to stardom in their homeland (but nowhere else, remember).
Scatena promises that the tome be a revelation even to their biggest fans, adding “They are genuinely five of the sweetest, humblest and funniest guys you’ll meet in rock’n’roll. That won’t come as a shock to anyone who knows anything about Powderfinger. What will surprise is the story these very private men finally share here about their extraordinary 20 years together.”
