This is a must !, 15 July 2013
I've read nearly every great rock and roll biography out there . From Wonderland Avenue , to Motley Crues , The Dirt , I've feasted on them all , but let me tell you , this book knocks the socks off them all ! If you want to know what it was like growing up in the music scene of New Orleans in the 50's and 60's , then being in LA during the late 60's : early 70's , if you want to get down on the street with Dr John , you have to read this! Apart from anything else , the hipness of his dialogue is amazing ! There's a rhythm to even the way he talks . This man is the real deal ! What a film could be made from even half of these tales !
