What i like about this book is the amount of information you get about his music,band members,and other Bakersfield characters.Plenty of stories about life on the road, as well as his successful business vetures.He seems to talk honestly,and openly,and in great detail about all aspects of his career.To be fair to the man, he talks quite frankly about his numerous infidelities,and his weakness for women,something Sisk spent too much time on.He talks very fondly of his band members,and as you would expect there is special praise for the outstanding Don Rich,and the part he played in Buck's life.The day of his death makes for some very sad reading.In fact,he hardly has a bad word to say about anyone.
Read this book.If you have read the Sisk book first,you will probably remain undecided about Buck the person,but very much more enlightened about his music as a result of reading this one.If you are only going to buy one biography,choose this one.
