Often funny and entertaining and sometimes brutally honest Raphael takes the reader on a journey filled with up and downs complete with insights into the planning and strategic thinking involved in taking a start-up band from zero to hero. It will delight fans of the band and enlighten other young ambitious bands wanting to achieve fame and fortune. The multi-platinum selling Johannesburg-bred quartet have headlined the 20,000-seater Coca Cola Dome in their hometown in 2009, performed at the World Cup Kick-off Concert to an audience of a billion in 2010, and were handpicked by Coldplay to open the British bands stadium shows in Johannesburg and Cape Town in 2011. The Parlotones staged an original rock theatre production, Dragonflies and Astronauts, which was broadcast live around the world in 3D via DIRECTV and in 2D on Facebook. Over the years, they have raised funds and awareness for a variety of social and environmental organizations, lending their high profile to initiatives such as Live Earth, Earth Hour, The South African Broadcasting Corporations Carbon Free campaign, Nelson Mandelas 46664, and Live Earths Run for Water, among others.
