What a great read. While it's not at all necessary to have Iived through the eras, the music and the sidebars as an observer, it made it even more of a ride. Recommended to all and especially aspiring musicians as there is solid insight into Gregory's creative process.
No one could compare to Gregg.
Will Patton is Gregg Allman...can't imagine a better interpretation nor would I invite one.
While he's no angel, it's great to hear his side
What a ride - a terrific continuation of Meltzer's previous release. It was great getting back in touch immediately with the characters. As one who is also interested in presidential history, I found the integrated realism of events that surrounded key presidents, Lincoln most prominently, but others as well, very intriguing. It inspired many search and Wiki inquiries to determine any reality in Brad's basis for some of the plot twists. Truly couldn't put it down - made my commute longer by design. Highly recommended.
plot twists, deep basis for story lines, plenty of surprises
Scott's a favorite - as many have said, he could read the phone book and it would be a must-listen
I was pleasantly surprised and inspired to learn more all along the read
There's a lot of history here. It is told in a very personal way, fully accessible and very listenable. Great to get such perspective from Buddy Guy and those who were there during this era of Blues awareness.
No question, Buddy Guy although those he comes in contact with each have their own appeal.
I might. It took a bit to adjust to Willis's performance but once I got into his rhythm it was a joy ride
It makes me want to venture to the areas of the country central to the book and walk the steps Buddy Guy walked alongside so many legends
It's a terrific compliment to Gregg Allman's book - great background on what was happening in the music industry told through the eyes of a couple of central figures.
It was a surprisingly strong top tier read - story and narrator. Wasn't sure I'd like it but couldn't wait to jump back in on my commute each day to see how it all turned out.
It falls into the Mitch Rapp/Vince Flynn camp - shorter, not as in depth in detail but certainly a fast read with the elements of suspense, revenge and the depths the inquisitor goes to for the truth.
I liked it - took a bit to get used to as the narrator was a new voice for me - but it worked well as it adopted the persona of the key players in the story arc.
Parts made me squirm but not to the point of distraction from the overall story. Just enough to bring you into the inquisitor's mind and persona in full support of the story.
