An interesting and useful book, but you can tell it was a rush job. There are lots of places where new text has been added to an entry without adapting what's already there. For example you'll get something like "They are currently resting the band..." and then the next paragraph will start "They returned with a new album in..." Great for lists of songs and records, but the Rough Guide to Rock tells better stories.
