I cannot see the need for another Breau biography after this one. For those that love and admire Lenny's music, we should all be in gratitude for Forbes-Roberts contribution to a first class biography. Two thumbs up, and for those who play guitar, this book will inspire you to play more often!
I can not be completely impartial to the work of Lenny Breau, and I am very proud to see this work of Lenny Breau through the work of Mr. Forbes-Roberts.
I devoured from beginning to end this book, and I certify that this book is really well written.
This book will help many guitarist in their future career to know what path to take and those to avoid.
Merci Monsieur Forbes-Roberts pour votre travail!
Votre livre est un éloge sincère à la vie de Lenny Breau.
Ron Forbes-Robrts, who writes for GUITAR PLAYER Magazine, is the author of a detailed history of Breau, providing long overdue recognition to the guitarist and composer, who was devoted to teaching his innovative technique. His son, Chet, was his ardent student, and he now enjoys a rapt following as a guitar tezcher and leader of the Chet Breau Band. Bernard Stollman
Many passages of his sadder choices remind me of my life as a young guitar player/addict, and the friends and family I have lost to drugs and "domestic dysfunction," to put it politely. I felt my griefs and regrets again after finishing this book the other night. But I thank God/The Powers That Be that I made different choices and haven't been lost like that for over 15 years.
The descriptions of his music are fantastic, with critical but accurate reviews of his playing on his relatively few albums. I met the man once in 1978-79 at a guitar class taught by John Pisano at Los Angeles Valley College. I was probably in almost as bad shape as Lenny was back then. I wish he could have had a way out of his last, worst relationship, and survived. I miss him and still try to look for those players who knew him, picked up guitar lessons from him, or cite him as an influence.
A great but sad biography of a magnificent original the like of whom I don't expect to ever see again.
