Early on, Boone invites us in, describing the nearly equal pleasure a music enthusiast like himself takes from just reading and learning about music, as he does from actually listening to the music. As someone who spends a lot of time combing through allmusic, absorbing every little bit of trivia I can whenever I discover a band for myself, I felt like he was coming from the same place.
The book is very conversational. It reads fast and is a great time, not to mention that it is also very well written. In short, I had a hell of a lot of fun.
The book primarily focuses on rock music but the stories cross different eras so this book appeals to not only the classic rock lover but to alternative rock fans as well. From the origin of "Free Bird!" to a flow chart of the degrees of seperation from the Pixies, this book is sure to appeal to all music fans.
I bought a few copies for last minute Xmas gifts.
The only problem with this book is that it is not long enough, i hope Mr. Noone will write a string of sequels!!!!!
I highly recommend this book to anyone who likes to read the little stories behind the bands and the music................
A BIG FIVE STARS*****
This is a great gift for anyone that watches TV, listens to the radio, mp3, iPod, CD, record player, Victrola...! Loved it!!!
