Very in-depth 1st hand account of Keith's life.
Knowing where, when and how he was raised you can tell why the music sounds the way it does. Keiths playing is very raw (yet awesome) and uncontrolled at points. Very similar to where he came from.
Joe Hurley's performance was stellar. Sometimes I thought I was listening to Keith Richards. He is a natural as a narrator. Just great.
Just the fact that he hung with all the old blues cats in his formidable years. I also feel like "he got it" when it came to the blues.
This book made me appreciate his contribution to music and him as a musician more than I already did.
How the band handled Duane's death...
The reader of the book had a great tone and made me want to listen.
Im now revisiting all my older ABB records (CDS). I have a new ear when listening to them.
This book gave me a different perspective on Brothers and Sisters and Eat A Peach. They put their head into the music to deal with Duane's death.
Obviously Gregory and Dickie Betts have their differences. I like how Gregg pointed out the positives on Dickie and didn't bash him. I found it respectable.
