    One Way Out is the powerful biography of the Allman Brothers Band, an oral history written with the band's participation and filled with original, never-before-published interviews as well as personal letters and correspondence. This is the most in-depth look at a legendary American rock band that has meant so much to so many for so long. For 25 years, Alan Paul has covered the Allman Brothers Band, conducting hundreds of interviews, riding the buses with them, attending rehearsals and countless shows.

    What would have made Notes of a Young Drummer 1966-1969 better?

    constant drumming in the background made it unlistenable.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    no clue, gotta check the library


    What didn’t you like about Michael Welch’s performance?

    nothing


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Notes of a Young Drummer 1966-1969?

    if I were producer id have nixed the background drumming. it made the book unlistenable.


    Any additional comments?

    the drumming in the background made the book unlistenable.

    From Graham Nash - the legendary musician and founding member of the iconic bands Crosby, Stills & Nash and The Hollies - comes a candid and riveting autobiography that belongs on the reading list of every classic rock fan.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Less preachy. We all know Mr. Nash is a big time Lib but we want a story not an explanation
    of his vapid political leanings.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Graham Nash again?

    only if he wrote his own obituary.


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

    Just what a confused person he really is. If he hates this country (from which he has made untold millions) he should get the huck out of fere.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    nausea, and a sense of loathing.


    Any additional comments?

    why yes thank you. Graham Nash is clueless.

    Pamela Des Barres, the world’s foremost supergroupie, here offers an all-access backstage pass to the world of rock stars and the women who love them. Having had her own affairs with legends such as Keith Moon and Jimmy Page--as documented in her bestselling memoir I’m with the Band--Pamela now turns the spotlight onto other women who have found their way into the hearts and bedrooms of some of the world’s greatest musicians.

    What would have made Let's Spend the Night Together better?

    I don't think you could have made it better. This Gal is a one trick pony.


    What was most disappointing about Pamela Des Barres’s story?

    it is pretty much a rehash of "I'm with the band.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Pamela Des Barres?

    Linda Eastman.....oh no, wait ,she's dead. Lets see.....hummm.....I know, Phyllis Diller. Cmon, look it up.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    resignation. I knew from jump street this book was a retread.

    Why yes, thank you for asking........ The publisher should be dispatched with all due haste.

    What did you like best about this story?

    the minor details that cause you to this you are really getting the "inside" stuff


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

    I have not heard anything else from this Gent. But I think he did a ball peen job.


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

    I loved it, But yet I hated it. It made me laugh, it made me cry. It made me happy yet somehow sad.......extremely.

  • Furious Cool: Richard Pryor and The World That Made Him

    Richard Pryor was arguably the single most influential performer of the second half of the twentieth century, and certainly he was the most successful black actor/comedian ever. Controversial and somewhat enigmatic in his lifetime, Pryor's performances opened up a new world of possibilities, merging fantasy with angry reality in a way that wasn't just new - it was heretofore unthinkable. His childhood in Peoria, Illinois, was spent just trying to survive.

    Would you listen to Furious Cool again? Why?

    No, I can only hear the "N" word so many times before I start feeling soiled. I got the picture in the first reading.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The author really did his home work on this but so much was take from his discs and television specials that run from time to time but the book helps bring this tragic story into perspective.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    I like relevant minutia in my Bios, and this had plenty.


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

    Not extreme, but the head shaking tragedies leading up to his death screems out "where are the people who care about this man and why don't they help him". The answers are; there where none and he wouldn't allow it if there where.


    Any additional comments?

    Good effort by the reader to do a Richard Pryor impersonation..,,,but........FAIL.

    From the author's first glimpse of a magical recording studio in the mid-1960s up through a busy career that continues to the present day, this rollicking story can only be told by those that were there. As the young tape operator on sessions for the Rolling Stones, Jimi Hendrix, and Joe Cocker at the famed Olympic Sound Studios in London, Phill learned the ropes from experienced engineers and producers such as Glyn Johns and Eddie Kramer.

    It depends, if they want to know how many wheels the 4 track had that the Beatles used to record on in 66' this is the book for you.


    Did Terry Brown do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Not really. Other than knowing what brand mics where used during the recording of Sgt Pepper there is really no news here.


    Could you see Are We Still Rolling? being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    LOL. maybe an instruction manual, but "story"? No news here.


    Any additional comments?

    Why yes, thank you for asking. Any time there are more than 25 "shout outs or name checks in one book, you can bet somebody is at least getting taken out to lunch..... or a new car.....mayhaps.

    In Rocks, Joe Perry exposes his unrepentant, unbridled life as the lead guitarist of Aerosmith. He delves deep into his volatile, profound, and enduring relationship with singer Steve Tyler and reveals the real people behind the larger-than-life rock-gods on stage. The nearly five-decade saga of Aerosmith is epic, at once a study in brotherhood and solitude that plays out on the killing fields of rock and roll.

    John Glatt tells the story of the Fillmores through the lives of Bill Graham, Janis Joplin, Grace Slick, Carlos Santana, and an all-star supporting cast. Chronicling the East and West Coast cultures of the late 1960s and early 1970s-New York City with its speed, heroin, and the Velvet Underground versus San Francisco with the LSD-drenched Summer of Love - Glatt reveals how Graham made it all possible. But why did Graham shutter both Fillmores within weeks of each other in 1971, during the height of their popularity?
