Loud

At just fifteen, Tana Douglas ran away to the circus that was rock’n’roll in the 1970s, taking a job with a young band called AC/DC.

Tana Douglas

While still a teenager she headed to the UK and later the US to work for a who’s who list of bands and artists.

Life on the road was exhilarating, hard work, occasionally surreal but never dull, particularly when you’re the only woman in the road crew and the #metoo movement is still 40 years away. Whether wrangling Iggy Pop across Europe, climbing trusses while seven months pregnant, drinking shots of JD with Bon Scott backstage at Wembley, or donning a tailor-made suit to do lights for Elton at Windsor Castle, Tana did it all.

Funny, poignant, reflective and revealing, Loud is rock’n’roll like you’ve never experienced it before, by a woman who not only survived the all-male world of touring but climbed to the top and lived to tell the tale.
