I'm a Roxy Music fan and loved the degree of attention paid to them in this book.

This book is non-fiction, but I'm going to say David Bowie or Brian Eno anyway because I love them.
I have not listened to her performances before, but her voice is very pleasant.
It gave me a lot of the warm fuzzies (because glam rock is pretty much my favorite thing in the world) and I cried when it ended because I didn't ever want it to.
