I love biographies and autobiographies, true crime, Ann Rule, Stephen King, Herman Melville and John Grisham. I love to go to book signings and I collect first editions and signed first editions.

    The definitive memoir by Damien Echols of the "West Memphis Three", who was falsely convicted of committing three murders. Hear this unforgettable account of his 18 years on death row.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I loved getting to hear the voice of the accused and convicted, Damien Eckols, for once. I have followed the story, seen the documentaries and believed that these three men were innocent. A sad testament to the loss of eighteen years of life for 3 young men. The narration was superb, Damien has a very soulful voice. A obviously extremely intelligent man, just made me think what he could have done in those eighteen years. He gives a very lucid candid description of the destructive life in prison. Hope he writes/narrates more.
    It kept me so engaged, that I didn't wait for a drive to the beach to listen to it. I listened in snippets everyday.

    In this candid, intimate portrait of a life lived in music, Mick Fleetwood sheds new light on well-known points in his history, including many incredible moments of recording and touring with Fleetwood Mac, as well as personal insights from a man who has been a major player in blues and rock n' roll since his teens.

    John says: "More than Just Sex, Drugs and Rock 'n Roll"
    "Great History of 1070's Rock and Roll Bands"

    Would you listen to Play On again? Why?

    Absolutely! I was skeptical after reading the reviews, which weren't so good due to the lack of fodder and rumor and innuendo expected in Rock related memoirs. But I loved the very chronological way that Mick told the story of his rock resume, it was a true rock history narrated with an English Accent. It made me realize what a small world American and British music actually is. THe band members moved from band to band and intertwined with other famous musicians like John Mayall,Santana, Eric Clapton, Rod Stewart, and Dave Mason.Fleetwood Mac's music was such an integral part of my teens in the 70's it was nice to revisit.


    What other book might you compare Play On to and why?

    I'm with the Band by Pamela Des Barres,


    What does Martin Dew and Mick Fleetwood bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The nuances of their emotion, although limited as Mick is pretty monotone, and of course the lovely British accent.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I was somewhat moved by Mick's relationship with Jenny, and how many times he tried to salvage or renew their romance. That he finally gave in or gave up and moved on saddened me;even rock stars don't have perfect lives! They exist as we all do and have these true live experiences.


    Any additional comments?

    SPOILER ALERT!!! Two most surprising tidbits were that John McVie wrote Black Magic Women, Santana's Hit that has transcendent time, and that Mick's wife Jenny was the sister of Patty Boyd who wrote her own book about her marriages with George Harrison and Eric Clapton.
