    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.

    What made the experience of listening to Rod the most enjoyable?

    He's so funny!!! I had no idea. He doesn't take himself too seriously, but he knows what's important. He owned up to his mistakes and the lessons learned it life. It was refreshing.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Rod?

    Too many to list. It was a little slow at the beginning but once it got going it was one great story after another. I think the "feuds" with Elton John were hysterical.


    What three words best describe Simon Vance’s performance?

    character, funny, charming


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    My big little 'ol life


    Any additional comments?

    Simon Vance did a great job, but I would have loved to hear Rod read it.

    Love Life serves up another delicious selection of intimate stories and observations from Rob Lowe's life, told with humor, warmth, and brutal honesty. After writing his acclaimed debut effort, Lowe felt he had more stories to share and many more friends to introduce. The result is a touching memoir about the business and craft of acting, the pitfalls of success, family, love, and much more.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Love Life to be better than the print version?

    I haven't read the print version; but I've listened to both of Rob's books and they are a delight.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Rob! Obviously


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

    I listed to his first book as well. Both are wonderful. He's funny, bright and insightful. I hope he does more.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Laughed many times. Great stories.


    Any additional comments?

    You'll be missing out if you don't give his books a listen.

    The Kennedys - their poise, the family secrets, and their grace in the face of unimaginable tragedies - have captured the imagination and interest of the public for more than fifty years. Now colleague and friend of JFK Jr. Matt Berman offers us a unique look at John's life as both a professional and "regular guy." When talented creative executive Matt Berman took a meeting with John Kennedy Jr. in 1995, he was immediately hired to serve as George's creative director, thus beginning an unforgettable journey, both personal and professional.

    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Definitely. It touches on a more human side of JFK, Jr. that some may have forgotten while remembering the icon.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of JFK Jr., George & Me?

    The visit to Barbara Streisand's house.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Presenting George Washington's sword like it's no big deal.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    He knew everybody but he was just John.


    Any additional comments?

    You also get some insight on his wife. The press had her all wrong. Not an ice queen. Mistakes were made, but they all worked hard on George. John wasn't perfect but this book told me he was everything I thought he'd be; and the good outweighed the bad tenfold.

    In Face the Music, Paul Stanley - the co-founder and famous "Starchild" frontman of KISS - reveals for the first time the incredible highs and equally incredible lows in his life both inside and outside the band.

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

    No I have not; but I would listen to others.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    A few moments having to do with his children. He sounds like a wonderful father.

    It would be interesting to know which came first - this or 50 Shades. VERY similar on a lot of levels. But still an enjoyable listen. Just be careful listening at work *wink.

    On a lazy Sunday in 1954, 12-year-old Jerry Schilling wandered into a Memphis touch-football game, only to discover that his team was quarterbacked by a 19-year-old Elvis Presley, the local teen whose first record, That's All Right, had just debuted on Memphis radio. The two became fast friends, even as Elvis turned into the world's biggest star.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I really don't know. Mr. Schilling's family?


    What was most disappointing about Jerry Schilling and Chuck Crisafulli ’s story?

    It dragged on. Very dramatic over very minor details. The narrator took away from the story.


    How could the performance have been better?

    I would rather Mr. Schilling had read it himself. Would sound more legit.


    What character would you cut from Me and a Guy Named Elvis?

    None it's a biography


    Any additional comments?

    Might be better to actually read this one. Listening is painful
