Being on tour for weeks or even months at a time is no easy endeavor. But if you also suck at packing your suitcase, you can end up taking a lot of van space that could be put to better use.
In fact, the art of efficient packing is so lost, it necessitated a book called How to Pack Like a Rock Star.
Written by seasoned road dog Shaun Huberts and 40 other musicians (Cancer Bats!), the how-to book espouses one basic principle: Pack your suitcase horizontally, like a game of Tetris.
Be sure to regularly check the How to Pack Like a Rock Star blog for more tips to survive life on the road.
