From the suburbs of New Jersey to the clubs of New York to the top of the charts, musician John Popper has been pushing the boundaries of what’s possible on his instrument for decades. Best known as the frontman for Blues Traveler, Popper has collaborated with just about everyone in the music world by now. But as he writes in his new memoir, Popper wasn’t always a rock star — he started out as a socially awkward child who never did his homework. And in some ways, his struggles continued into adulthood.
The name of Popper’s book is Suck and Blow And Other Stories I’m Not Supposed to Tell.
