Portrait of Andrew Mueller

Andrew Mueller

London-based Andrew Mueller couldn’t decide between being a rock journalist, travel writer or foreign correspondent so he thought he’d try all three at once.

Rock and Hard Places is a retrospective of the backstages, frontlines and assorted side shows he’s encountered over the past 20 years.

Among his adventures, he cracks America with Radiohead, wanders all over the shop with U2, and tunes into the music scene in bombed-out Sarajevo. He accidentally goes to war in Bosnia, watches Def Leppard play in a Moroccan cave, and tries to make sense of Gallipoli on Anzac Day.
