I've listened to this book 3 times now. You don't have to be a big fan of Keef's or the bands to enjoy this insightful memoir. If you are (and who isn't?) you'll listen to it over and over. No punches pulled, no glossing over of dark times. Touching and funny as hell. Nothing to not like about this story, told by one of the true giants of rock. Talk about been there, done that.
Tim Dorsey yadda yadda yadda, laugh laugh laugh,. Serge Storms, great American Hero. All these books are amazingly funny. Can't go wrong
I've read or listened to most of the Serge Storms books, and they're all really good. While Torpedo Juice is probably the best of the lot (almost causing a massive accident due to uncontrollable laughter), every one of these books is a laugh riot and massively entertaining. In fact, I'm surprised there isn't a warning to not listen while behind the wheel. You just might crash. It's hard to control a vehicle when tears are streaming down your face from laughter.
Carl Hiaasen, Dave Barry and Tim Dorsey are all cut from the same cloth. And that's not a bad thing
I believe there are 2 different narrators for the series, and its hard to say that one is better than the other.
I've enjoyed every book in this series. Highly entertaining, witty, sarcastic, fast paced. My only problem is there is no book eight. Yet. Get off your a**, Mark. We're ready.
If you enjoyed J.L. Bourne's zombie series, you'll love this one as well. If not, you'll still enjoy this series. I definitely appreciate the technical accuracy concerning gear, weapons & tactics.
No need for a long, glowing review here, its another great book by DK. Can you really go wrong with his work? Nope. And he's a major dog lover, so its a win-win every time
A surprisingly good listen, enjoyed it very much. This could also be listed in the Comedy section. Even if your not an Oz fan, its hard not to like.
Right up there with Keith Richards bio, Life. High praise for sure.
CAUTION: Do not listen too while driving. I almost ran off the road from laughing too hard. Very enjoyable and enlightening rock n roll bio. Rod is a much better story teller than I ever imagined. Although I really enjoy Simon Vance as a narrator, I didn't think he'd be able to pull this particular read off, but that's not the case at all. And I'm admittedly not the biggest RS fan, so for those two reasons, I gave this book a pass a couple times before finally downloading it. This book was thoroughly enjoyable. Get it, you WILL NOT regret it.
Really enjoying the story so far. Definately worth listening to, especially if you have an interest in preparing for any 'worse case scenario'. Most definately believable. Not too thrilled with the narration though. Somewhat dry & toneless, but don't let that discourage a listen.
This is right up there with Keith Richards' bio. If Mr. Townshend ever wants to stop rocking & rolling, he could very easily lend his voice to other audio books. I would never count The Who as my fav band, or PT as my fav guitar slinger, but this was one well written story, full of insights & life. Enjoyed it immensley. Thank you for writing such a great book.
If your a fan of cars or the band, you'll love this memoir. If your a fan of both, you'll flip. Lots of great stories full of humor, laugh out loud type, and some good insight into a rock icon. My only complaint is that it was WAAAAY to short. Get it, you'll love it.
