    Robert Hilburn’s storied career as a rock critic has allowed him a behind-the-scenes look at the lives of some of the most iconic figures of our time. He was the only music critic to visit Folsom Prison with Johnny Cash. He met John Lennon during his "lost weekend" period in Los Angeles, and they became friends. Bob Dylan granted him his only interviews during his "born again" period and the occasion of his 50th birthday. Michael Jackson invited Hilburn to watch cartoons with him in his bedroom....

    Marc says: "Great Behind-the-scenes stories of rock 'n' roll!"
    "Not quite what I was expecting"

    Story

    The stories about John Lennon lasted for about as long as it takes to eat a bowl of cornflakes. These were followed by excruciating, seemingly endless tales of the genius' of Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen, Bono, and Kurt Cobain. Not what I bought the book for. There were some interesting stories about Elvis and Johnny Cash among others, and the narrator's impersonations of the subjects' when quoting them was kinda cute, but overall I hate it when I spend my monthly credit on books that I end up listening to with my finger on the fast forward button.
