ok. my first issue with this book was with the production. my copy (new) actually started falling apart mid - read. i had to put pages back in.
secondly, i found the opinions in the book to be very subjective.. there was alot of story and not much substance.. all in all "last of the rock romantics" was by far and away a better read - i actually lent my copy of that book to a friend, bought another and told him to keep it.
This is the only book you need read on the subject. Superbly written and musically articulate, this book stands out by a mile. The author clearly knows his subject, both personally and musically, something that cannot be said of most of the Doherty 'product' out there. The design compliments the narrative perfectly to make this an outstanding collector's item.
