Covering the Bands You Know & love But Also Opening up Your Ears to The Best of What came Before or after...
Where Else Can A GREAT band Like Rocket From The Tombs get their Due? They are just as Valuable As Television or The Dolls! The Velvets, The MC5, Richard Hell, Peter Laughner, And Others All Given their Rightful Place in Rock's history!
This is Required Reading for All you Kids out there, who Want to Make it Real again. No Ham-fisted tales of Limos or Mountains of coke, Just Busted Vans, Empty Clubs & a little Dope to make it all go down easy.
The Best Bands, The Best Tunes, The Best Albums. Everything Covered for the Best Reason! "cause they are the Best! The Best that Rock'n'Roll has to Offer.
Step Aside MTV, the Old Folks are Coming Back!
overshadowed by the snappier firsthand content of "Please Kill Me." But it's still a fun read and informative. My one real question about the book is "What is this guy's problem with the Dead Boys?" He takes several opportunites to belittle them--without providing much evidence that they deserve it. Aside from that, it's a unique and entertaining look at all roads leading to Punk.
