Abstract: For a quarter of a century, Hirst has been drummer and songwriter for Midnight Oil, seemingly content to play a backseat role to the arresting and exotic lead singer/frontman Peter Garrett. From the late 1970s to early this year, when they broke up, the Sydney group broke new ground in politically aware, dynamic rock. "Willie’s Bar and Grill" is two books enmeshed: a post-September 11 tour diary and an auto-biographical memoir. Rambling and unchecked, it captures band dynamics and the mechanics of a rock show better than it does the so-called ‘age of terror’ experience or even group history.
