Customer Review

on 7 February 2013
I'm afraid I can't come to terms with the style of presenting a biography whereby the book is filled with quotations from the subject's admirers, few of the quotations saying anything of depth. Perhaps this shows the writer's shortcomings in not being prepared to incorporate the relevant details into the main text in his own writing style or maybe it was a race against the clock to get the book published and therefore an easy option. It is not the definitive biography that I had hoped for with no new information on Lonnie. The selection of photographs could have been more extensive and an index would have been useful. There is the odd error that I've noticed but what's new these days? The commentary on concurrent happenings in Britain's music scene doesn't really cut it for me and is better covered in other books. Sorry to be so negative but I don't honestly feel that this book covers Lonnie's life and times as well as other writers such as Spencer Leigh have done. One further thought - why was this book published now and not ten years ago?
