Rock Book Show Interview: Bill See “33 Days”

Posted by on Jun.30, 2011, under Current Shows No Comments

Hunter S. Thompson once said, “The music business is a cruel and shallow money trench. A long plastic hallway where thieves and pimps run free and good men die like dogs.  There’s also a negative side.”

Author/Musician Bill See and his band “Divine Weeks” were a successful band in Los Angeles who decided to embark on their first tour in 1987.  Those thirty-three days in the van are recounted in “33 Days” from Bill’s personal diaries, but this isn’t a book about the history of the band.  It’s a coming of age story where the road proves a great teacher—it shows you who you are, your dreams and what you’ll hold true for the rest of your life.

The DIY spirit of bands like Black Flag and The Minutemen is alive in these guys, and they just want to see what the world holds for them.  When reading BIll’s book, you’ll be glad you hopped in the van and went along for the ride.

“Hey, We’re Divine Weeks and we’re from L.A., but don’t hold that against us”.

Hear and See Divine Weeks first music video for “In The Country (for Jim Carroll) which debuted on MTV’s 120 MInutes in 1987.
