A poem from Mali´s spoken-word collection Conviction. ´´The evolution of Taylor Mali the poet could be measured in the number of people his poetry has directly inspired to be teachers. Or the increasing cast of high school and college-age students who perform his words in forensic competitions. It could be measured in national poetry slam competitions. But I believe the poet is only as good as his words, and there is no better showcase for the words of Taylor Mali than this incredible collection of live performances. This is Taylor in his element: performing in front of live and writhing audiences demanding and receiving all the rough, raw, and authentic passion of Taylor Mali´s poetry.´´ By Cristin O´Keefe Aptowicz, from the liner notes to Conviction. 1.

Scott has played over 500 concerts at hundreds of venues spanning almost two decades. From performing to the bar staff at strip mall dive bars, to a sold-out show with members of The Misfits and the Ramones, 33 Percent Rockstar: Music, Heartbreak and the Pursuit of Rock Stardom is about the love of music and life as a struggling musician. It is the true story of what happens when you give up everything to follow your dreams - even when they lead to a run-down strip club in a seedy part of Lincoln, Nebraska.Scott learned how to play the bass guitar and became a musician. He´d eventually become a damn good one. He fell in love and got his heart broken, twice. He played in multiple bands, recorded multiple albums, and toured the country.In the end, Scott never made it big, but it wasn’t for lack of trying. All for the love of music, he toiled in dead-end jobs, drove across the country in dilapidated tour vans, and dealt with the fragile egos and creative differences of a rotating cast of bands and band members.33 Percent Rockstar: Music, Heartbreak and the Pursuit of Rock Stardom is the sad tale which lies behind the vast majority of musicians who never achieve rock stardom and offers a glimpse of the everyday lives of those hopeful, possibly deluded, souls pursuing the rock star dream. 1.
