The devil has all the best tunes,
By A Customer
This review is from: Powder: An Everyday Story of Rock'n'roll Folk (Paperback)
A fantastic book, whose faults are more than eclipsed by it's sheer insight, enthusiasm and ambition. We will never know what "Beautiful" sounds like, but we know in our heart of hearts that is really is one of the greatest records ever made, and the reason why a bitter, jealous no hope from Liverpool becomes, in the space of a year, a bitter, jealous rock god. A stunning cast of characters, led by James Love, and his charity work with the disabled, Wheezer, the dreamer turned hero, Guy de Guy, the redemption seeking rich kid, not to mention Beano, Tony, Todd, Ticky, Hannah, Celeste, all of them real, all of them completely believeable. This is crying out to be filmed, but how the hell are they going to get the songs right?
One of the few books I've read which warrants a follow up...
