"The artist named by Rolling Stone as one of America's best singer-songwriters and the 2005 Producer of the Year shares the inside story of his music career. From his days with one-hit-wonder band the Marvelous 3 to his current work producing some of today' hottest talent -- from Weezer and Katy Perry to Pink, Avril Lavigne, and Panic! at the Disco -- Butch Walker has proven himself a major influence in contemporary pop music. But the road to success wasn't easy. Drinking with Strangers takes you into the studio and onto the stage, offering a rare glimpse into a life defined by raw talent, determination, a drive for perfection, and some ridiculous haircuts."--www.amazon.com.
