    From the Stooges and MC to Grand Funk Railroad and Ted Nugent, to the White Stripes, Eminem, and Kid Rock, and whole casts of other great bands and performers, Detroit has always produced louder, more rumbling, more subversive rock music than any city in the world. In Detroit Rock City, listeners get to hear the stories straight from the participants themselves: the singers, the guitar slingers, the fans, the reporters, the promoters, even the guys who hand-made amps to be louder and crunchier than the competition’s.

    Story
    Would you listen to Detroit Rock City again? Why?

    Yes! The stories entwine and the history is layered, so it is easy to uncover new aspects of Detroit and how Detroit influences American music.


    What other book might you compare Detroit Rock City to and why?

    Please Kill Me The Uncensored Oral History of Punk except Detroit Rock City is regional and is interesting in that way.


    What does Steve Miller bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Steve Miller's voice expresses true love for the music. He expresses a view of growing up for any one of us who have been "touched" by rock and roll.


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

    Interesting book, funny and informative.


    Any additional comments?

    True grit. If it was easy it would not have been about Detroit. In a city's fabled tales of crime, demise and lost souls lies the spirit of rock. The book needed to be written. Detroit is not just Motown. The Detroit rock drums have a distinct back beat much like the undercurrent beats of New Orleans, a sound, a distinction of rock souls. If you listen you will hear it, the beating heart of Detroit.
