Ok so here I am a 57 year old who grew up listening to Glen Miller , The Beatles then ELP , Led Zeppelin etc and then diversified in musical tastes reggae ,latin, funk ,NewOrleans brass band the list could go on and on ! .. A guy I worked with also a drummer (much younger) tried to introduce me tp Hip Hop and Questlove some years ago unsuccessfully .. Recently I got the Joe Jackson CD which has Questlove playing drums and then I got The Elvis Costello CD with The Roots and I was sold .. The Roots initially I found difficult to grasp but with repeated listening I fell in love with the music .
Mo'Meta Blues is the best music biography I have read , and I have to tell you my CD collection has grown ..It is well put together and the imagery created just took me to the locations being written about .. please don't be put off that some "old Guy" has read this book and really enjoyed it, buy or download a copy you won't be disappointed
