Format: Hardcover
I bought this book to give as a gift for my music loving brother and found myself gripped - so much so that I'm keeping it. It's funny, informative and full of the unexpected. I particularly love the insight into bands' backstage riders and the guide to the world's great rock n roll hotels. The chapter titled music and lyrics is fascinating and again very funny - a guide to Thom Yorke's lyrics, a crap rhyming dictionary and howling factual errors in songs - all just brilliant. Each time I pick it up I just find something else that surprises me and makes me laugh. There is something for any music fan of any genre in this book.

I do not normally write reviews but I thought I would for this book. It's a coffee table type book in one way, because you can dip in and out of it on any page and find something interesting. What I am amazed about is the amount of printing mistakes in the book , given that I am hopeless at english even I could pick up the mistakes... did anybody proof read this book? I was somewhat suprised by some of the factual mistakes as well, given what a respected journalist John Harris is.

I bought the kindle version of this book as I have the hardback. I wanted to take it when I travel. The hardcopy has extensive notes alongside the illustrations which are all omitted from the electronic version. What a rip-off. I am investigating how to get a refund - not very helpful on that score Amazon for electronic downloads - fine if it is hardcopy.

Lordy, what an incredible amount of words - dead good value! Clearly,an awful lot of work went into this book and it's really funny and interesting and sometimes gobsmacking.
