Customer Review

on June 21, 2010
Einarson's meticulously researched rock biographies are the Behind the Music of print. With Forever Changes, Einarson has once again captured an era through music. The music of the sixties defined my life, and while I had Love albums, I knew little about Arthur Lee or the band. Although Einarson discusses the drug use of Lee and his bandmates, the book does not bog down under repetitive details of who took what and how much. The focus is the music, which makes this account a joy to read.

Einarson uses excerpts from Lee's memoirs as well as interviews with many of the people who knew and worked with Lee to craft a detailed biography. There are rich descriptions of the composition, arranging and recording process. Einarson balances the musical genius and cult status of Lee with info about his aversity to touring, a characteristic which was Lee's undoing in terms of broad recognition and fortune. Many seemingly opposing facets to Lee's personality are revealed; he could be kind and generous to family and friends, volatile in personal and business relationships, and nearly impossible to work with.
