    A accurate title would be Timothy White's Greatest Hits This is an anthology of Timothy White's spectacular writing career in the music biz which leaves many strange omissions and condensations just because White eithera did not get to interview the particular subjectb White personally did not like the particular subjectThis winds up being a rather choppy and unsatisfying overlook of rock and pop music from Robert Johnson to Prince yes THAT Prince Many key players in the history of pop and rock music get really short shrift from White only three or four pages for Bob Dylan? And one page there devoted to Paul Simon's compliments about Dylan?SERIOUSLY? He focuses only on the long interviews he happened to snag in his career which makes for some odd choices included here such as Rickie Lee Jones and the Beastie Boys and most of that profile was spent on how much people hated the Beastie Boys including the Boys themselvesThe Pink Floyd segment was criminal all it talked about was how pissed off Roger Waters was at the remaining band members in the late 1980s which culminated in a bizarre years long courtroom dance which would Waters would later regret There were a few really good interviews Peter Gabriel Elvis Costello Pete Townshend Paul McCartney and David Bowie in particular in fact my library's copy has a broken spine right at the David Bowie interview but most of these are average and mired with some pretentious prose from White's observations and his annoying tendency to try to humorously insert famous song lyrics of that artist in the profile or interviewIt's a long slog You're really just better off skipping this book and listening to the music

    Very interesting collection of articles about the movers and shakers of popular music The range of artists is impressive from Professor Longhair and Elvis Presley to Jimmy Page and Bryan Ferry White uses narrative fact listing and interviews to tie each artist’s story into the larger story of pop music Most entries include a decent biography but some are a bit esoteric commenting on the artist’s impact instead of how the impact was made Still a riveting book for any pop music fan

    Sophisticated writing that I confess reuired several dictionary pauses Interesting to see how rock and roll came to be and the many talents who pioneered it shaped it and carry it forward The sneak peeks behind the scenes with the artists made me appreciative some and some much less And still others left me wondering how on earth they lived to tell
