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.
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.
I'm with the Band by Pamela Des Barres,
The nuances of their emotion, although limited as Mick is pretty monotone, and of course the lovely British accent.
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.
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.
