Cowboy Junkies came to the attention of the world in 1988 when the beguiling sound of The Trinity Session found its way into more than two million homes. Drawing on the work of the 20th century's greatest songwriters in order to find their own voice, the band have gone on to produce one of the most consistent bodies of work in rock music, their own varied take on the Great American Songbook, with plenty more to come. The story of three Timmins and an Anton - Mike, Margo, Pete and Alan - is one of following the sounds and the stories in their heads wherever they lead, of taking the songs to the people, of staying true to the substance, not the surface. In this authorised biography of the band, Dave Bowler shows how, after 35 years, several hundred songs, 200 (thousand and) more miles down the road, the music is still the drug.
