Really enjoyed this book. Although I read some of the interviews before having them together in chronological order gives an entertaining and accurate guide to Bruce's evolution as a writer, of his thoughts, views, politics over the years. Whets the appetite for what Bruce's autobiography will be if he ever writes one (partly written and abandoned already according to this book.)
The clear thing that emerges from reading a whole volume of a man's career interviews, is that he has been consistent from the beginning with his own vision. He was as inspired by his own heroes as much as he has become an inspiration for others. He was honest about his struggle with huge success, a great deal of indifference to money it seems, and would honestly still be playing around the bars of Jersey in his mid 60s if he had never made it big. It was always always the music that mattered most, and It always will be. There's nothing particularly revealing here that any major fan won't know, but it does present a compelling portrait of a hard working, and mostly brilliant musician and writer.
I haven't read the whole book yet so can't give a really full review. I have only browsed, reading choice intervies here and there, but from what I've read I think I'm going to enjoy it once I get settled to it.
