Hail! Hail! what a great book, 18 Oct. 2009
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.
