Top Customer Reviews
Kihn is a good writer, but the book is edited abysmally, with more typos and misspellings than the reader should find. Still, it is riveting stuff, and for this geezer, it was thrilling to be transported to the era when the Beatles were still together and Keith Moon, Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, Jim Morrison, Cass Elliott, and Jones were still alive and inventing the music that still entertains us today.
“Painted Black” immerses Kihn’s 60’s rock ‘n’ roll hero, Dust Bin Bob in the turmoil of the Rolling Stones as Mick Jagger and Keith Richards alienate Brian Jones from the band he founded. Kihn takes us on a tour of late 60’s London, the Monterey Pop Festival and Morocco in an effort to save Jones’ life. The plot is bent around the known facts of Jones’ life and, at moments. it seems a bit shoe-horned in to fit, and the mystery takes a backseat.
But Kihn does a lot right in “Painted Black”. There’s good writing such as “the heat in North Africa can be debilitating. It shimmers in the afternoon like ghosts…” The plot keeps you interested and at times you’ll find yourself not wanting to stop reading.
