About the Book:

Hello. My name is Paul DeLisle. I’m the guy who wrote this book. You’ve probably never heard of me. That’s okay. Most people wouldn’t know me from Adam. But, unless you’ve been living in a cloistered monastery for the last fifteen years, you have heard of my band.

So begins the memoir of the creation, rise, and current state of the multi-platinum recording artist Smash Mouth as told by bassist Paul DeLisle. Well known for their hits “All Star,” “Walking on the Sun,” “Then the Morning Comes,” “Can’t Get Enough of You Baby,” and “I’m a Believer,” the band carried the spirit of a generation, but didn’t stop there. Enjoy this behind-the-scenes look from Paul’s unique, there from the start, insider’s view.

AmazonMy Review:

Very simply, Walkin’ On the Sun, the Official Smash Mouth Biography, is a brief, chronological history of the band, including how they met, their meteoric success and their struggle to remain relevant 20 years later.

But to elaborate, this book is hip, fresh and fun, with a writing style very similar to the “nouveau-groovy 60’s throwback” style for which their most popular songs are known.  I’m talking about the eponymous Walkin’ On the Sun, not to mention Can’t Get Enough of You Baby, All Star, Then the Morning Comes, and of course, I’m a Believer.

I loved how excited and grateful DeLisle is for all the good things that have happened for him and the band.  Did you know Smash Mouth was discovered by a young Carson Daly?  Or that Neil Diamond was a huge Smash Mouth fan?

I give Walkin’ On the Sun five stars!!  It’s a fast read, and tons of fun for fans of 90’s music (how could that be 20 years ago?)

 I received a complimentary copy of this book for the purpose of review through Promotional Book Tours.  All opinions are 100% my own.
