A good read but the author goes into too much detail, discussing every track on each of Bonnie's albums. That said, I did learn an awful lot about Bonnie I never knew before. Her struggles to make the big time, her alcohol and substance abuse, and, together with other artists such as Jackson Browne, leading the field, via 'The Rhythm and Blues Foundation' in getting older artists the royalties they never got back in the day. She's also invited the likes of the great Sippie Wallace and Charles Brown to go out on the road with her, giving them a new lease of life as well as introducing her own fan base to these legendary blues musicians and their music. She has also played many many benefit concerts to help pay medical bills of artists who had fallen on bad times. So yes, I did enjoy this book at many levels.
An unauthorised biography, probably written to cash-in on the Grammy-winning success of Bonnie's 'Nick of Time'CD. A strangely flat book which hasn't got the fan's passion or the critic's insight. As a parade of biographical facts it's mildly interesting but nothing more.
