A fun collection of Kurt Loder's interviews with a wide variety of celebrities. His style of writing is informative and descriptive, and even thoughtfully critical at times. This is a good book to pick up when you only have a short time or interrupted opportunities to read. It is an interesting collection of essays and interviews at the dawning of the era of full blown "celebrity" culture.

Well written, captured the music scene at that area. The book was able to capture the artist, the personality and the voice behind the music. I find Frank Zappa's article to be enlightening and witty. Touching piece on Captain Beefheart.
