The author clearly knows the material. He also goes to considerable lengths to make it interesting. He includes the sordid details - the grizzly, the scandalous, and the humorous. In some cases he even tries to show context. However, that is not always the case. In many cases it is a boring recitation of long-forgotten musicians and actors. The book focuses on culture, rather than the era. Consequently, there is next-to-nothing about the Cold War or political discussion.

Rodriguez is not so much
