Cardinals guitarist Neal Casal documents the rock ’n’ roll life on the road and in the studio in this photo book. Casal’s position within the band makes for an ideal vantage in which to unobtrusively capture his images.

Singer-songwriter Ryan Adams is the subject of most of the photographs, and fans will love to spend some time with him on tour. But despite Casal’s being a part of the band, there are surprisingly few candid or intimate moments.

Perhaps it speaks to Adams’ personality, but in many of his shots he is posing, revealing little of his real self. Others, where he is finishing up lyrics in the studio, sleeping on the tour bus or chatting with Willie Nelson have a more genuine feel.

Adams provides an introduction, while the Grateful Dead’s Phil Lesh has an afterward.
