ergh..i disagreed with many of mr. sellers opinions, but i'm not holding that against him. he wouldn't do the same for me, but that's fine. the good: this is an easy read, is mildly amusing from time to time, and may provide some music trivia answers to store in your brain for later use when playing trivial pursuit-music edition. the bad: gets repetitive, author contradicts himself more than once and offers no explanations, excessive footnotes (supposedly to pay homage to his favorite writer) seem either irrelevant or like lazily thrown-in afterthoughts, and too much of the book consists of mr. sellers trying to convince the world that he is the biggest and best fan that a band could have. alright alright! i'm convinced! you win! i'd have preferred the focus to be on what made these bands so great instead of how great he is for appreciating them.
