Cain is author of the book “Life’s A Good Gig,” nominated for best non-fiction book by the San Diego Book & Writers Awards.
Life's a Good Gig takes us on an international romp from the ultimate groove to the infamous gig from hell with a band of brothers like no others, some cool cats, some downright deadbeats. It's Jimmy Buffet gone Bill Bryson. musician/adventurer John Cain, like chef Anthony Bourdain, samples each musical genre like a savory stew, and shares the creative process from the ridiculous to the sublime, from the dubious singing dog to X-rated song lyrics to an unimaginable code of professional ethics. Cain explores the mysteries of music and life in this well-crafted memoir of his musical sojourn.
