This review is from: Rip It Up: The Black Experience in Rock N Roll (Paperback)
At a time when most books about "rock" leave out black artists
(the laughable Spin Guide to Alternative Rock didn't mention
Fishbone at all but predictably drooled over much lesser acts)
and when dull retreads such as Ryan Adams are hailed as the future of rock,here comes "Rip It Up" to showcase the true future of music. I could have done without the always useless
Jon Caramanica's article (I was at the Mos Def show and the reaction wasn't that severe) but hey the rest more than makes up for it.
