Fall Out Boy’s Joe Trohman reveals memoir ‘None Of This Rocks’

Fall Out Boy guitarist and co-founder Joe Trohman has announced that he’s releasing a new memoir this autumn.

Titled None Of This Rocks, the book explores Trohman’s youth and his road to becoming a musician. It is described as being “unlike any [memoir] you’ve ever read.”

The synopsis of the book (via Waterstones) reads: “None Of This Rocks is a memoir by Joe Trohman – lead guitarist and co-founder of Fall Out Boy – that reads like a double album full of revealing stories from his youth and his experiences of modern rock and roll stardom.”

Adding: “With wit and wisdom, and maybe a little bit of whining, Trohman grapples with depression, his mother’s brain cancer, antisemitism, pills, petty larceny, side hustles, and pop-punk at the turn of the century. Full of revealing stories from his youth and his experiences of modern rock and roll stardom”.

“Then came Fall Out Boy. From the guitarist’s very first glimpses of their popular ascension, to working with his heroes like Anthrax’s Scott Ian, to writing for television with comedian Brian Posehn, Trohman takes readers backstage, into the studio, and onto his couch.”

“He shares his struggles with depression and substance abuse in a brutally honest and personal tone that readers will appreciate. Not much of this rocks, perhaps, but it all adds up to a fascinating music memoir unlike any you’ve ever read.”

None Of This Rocks will be released on September 13th. The book can be pre-ordered now on its website.

Fall Out Boy are currently preparing for the UK and European leg of the Hella Mega Tour, a three-way headliner between the Chicago pop-rockers, Green Day and Weezer.

Fall Out Boy were forced to cancel a number of dates on the North America leg earlier this year due to one of the team members contracting Covid-19. In a touching tribute, Weezer performed their own version of the band’s 2005 hit ‘Sugar, We’re Goin’ Down’.
