    Story

    The Eagles are the bestselling, and arguably the tightest-lipped, American group ever. Now band member and guitarist Don Felder finally breaks the Eagles years of public silence to take fans behind the scenes. He shares every part of the bands wild ride, from the pressure-packed recording studios and trashed hotel rooms to the tension-filled courtrooms, and from the joy of writing powerful new songs to the magic of performing in huge arenas packed with roaring fans.

    Paul Schmitz says: "Don Felder is an interesting dude"
    "if it has to do with rock n roll I'd listen"

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    would have been better with a different narrator


    What did you like best about this story?

    the Eagles!


    Would you be willing to try another one of Dennis Holland’s performances?

    not sure. His speaking voice dragged on. Reminds me of a lame schoolmaster reading.


    Do you think Heaven and Hell: My Life in the Eagles (1974-2001) needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    maybe from Don Henley

  • Alice Cooper, Golf Monster: A Rock 'n' Roller's 12 Steps to Becoming a Golf Addict

    Story
    (16)

    The man who invented shock rock tells the amazing and, yeah, shocking story of how he slayed his thirsty demons with a golf club. It started one day when Cooper was watching a Star Trek rerun between concerts, bored and drunk on a quart-of-whiskey-a-day habit. A friend dragged the rocker out of his room and suggested a round of golf. Cooper has been a self-confessed golf addict ever since.

    Michelle says: "Awesome"
    "What a fun book!!!!"

    Story
    (108)

    Rod Stewart was born the working class son of a Scottish plumber in north London. Despite some early close shaves with a number of diverse career paths ranging from gravedigging to professional soccer, it was music that truly captured his heart - and he never looked back. Rod’s is an incredible life, and here - thrillingly and for the first time - he tells the entire thing, leaving no knickers under the bed. A rollicking rock ’n’ roll adventure that is at times deeply moving, this is the remarkable journey of a guy with one hell of a voice - and one hell of a head of hair.

    Ninotchka says: "If you think he's sexy - or not - give it a go!"
    "great read!"

    Have you listened to any of Simon Vance’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
