Don't worry because it's also very good indeed.
Meticulously researched and immaculately written, it never drags.
Even handed (which means it is not a bland love letter to its subject) and open hearted, the author 'gets it' - all the complexities and the compromises and the cop-outs - because he's a musician, too, he's been there.
Most revealing and an object lesson in how to write a rock biography.
(But would he have had the nerve to write it if the subject was still alive? I reckon he'd have got a kicking if he had!)
