Sarcasm and Glory

Wicked Wit and Wisdom

BY   J D Yorke

A compilation of stories and philosophy written from the gutter and grandeur of backstage Rock N Roll life.

It all started in 1979...

JD Yorke is an American concert production icon. He was monitor mixer for Guns N Roses during the Appetite For Destruction Tour, audio engineer for The Cult, provided lighting designs for Def Leppard, Judas Priest, Elvis Costello, Anthrax, stage manager for Cheap Trick, pyro guy for Disney, production assistant for Metallica, Pantera and ZZ Top, he is in the NY Blues Hall of Fame as a Producer, mixed over 800 shows at BB King Blues Club in NYC, and Production Manager for VH1 "Rock Across America"...

In the past 40 years, he has worked in virtually every single capacity backstage.

Sarcasm and Glory is more than a humorous inside look at the Rock n Roll Biz, it delivers solid advice with plenty of irony and New York Attitude!
