Fans of one of the biggest sensations in popular music Today have another reason to rejoice--here is an intimate, behind-the-scenes look at Barenaked Ladies that is "part mash note, part insider's volume of war stories" (The Toronto Star). Their last two albums have made them multi-platinum artists, they've had number one hit singles, and their music is featured on commercials that everybody has seen. They've sold out Madison Square Garden, appeared on The Tonight Show and Saturday Night Live. They've preempted the Olympics and rocked the vote on The West Wing. In 1998 they hit the top of the Billboard charts with their number one single "One Week" from the number one album Stunt. With two Grammy nominations under their belts, the Barenaked Ladies are nothing less than a phenomenon. Now, for the first time in the U.S., we can read all about their astonishing story. Fellow Canadian musician Paul Myers was tapped by the Ladies themselves to write this book, and he was given complete and unprecedented access to their music, their lives, their failures and successes. It's a perfect match: Myers, songwriter, journalist, and yes, brother of Mike Myers, gets inside the heads of five guys who drew on their eclectic backgrounds to generate a groundbreaking musical style. Their quirky, bizarre lyrics and unforgettable live performances have secured an audience as varied as it is intelligent. Fun, frank, and sometimes frivolous, this is the naked truth behind Barenaked Ladies.
