5.0 out of 5 stars Some background as to why i left this review in April 2007, 10 April 2007
By 
This review is from: The Complete Rock Family Trees: the Development and History of Rock Performers including Eric Clapton, Crosby Stills Nash & Young, Led Zeppelin, ... Genesis, Madness, T.Rex, Police (Paperback)
The reason why i left this review was because at the time there was only one review - Mrs French's. She had critisised the book as being 'out of date' being oblivious to the fact that the book had been published almost twenty years before she left her review. She had given the book three stars and, as she was at the time the books only reviewer, the book had, therefore, only three stars. Whilst we are all free to leave reviews of products we own on Amazon i felt i could not let this go unchallenged. (I pointed out that I had not actually read the book out of fairness, though i did remember the TV show, 'rock family trees' voiced by John Peel, based on the rock family trees series of books.) The review i left is as follows:

"I have not read either this, or the follow-up 'more rock family trees' but I felt I must comment... on Mrs. French's review of the book. In the 'product details' part of the web page, above this review but a little bellow the main heading it quite clearly states (for anyone who cares to look) that this book was published in December 1983. Mrs. French is therefore quite incorrect when she states that the book is not up to date. It is as 'to date' as a book about the Vietnam War may be when published in 1972 or 'to date' as a book about the cold war published before the fall of the Berlin wall...
P.S. It appears that Genesis may be on the verge of reforming for some concerts..."

(In case you are wondering about the Genesis remark Mrs French had critised the book by saying 'according to this book Genesis are still together' (actually they WERE when the book was written) so i decided to sink to her level by pointing out that at the time i left my review they had reformed - although they were not when Mrs French left her review in 2001.)
