Ellison really got me caught in the world of show business here, from the decadent lifestyle to the greedy opportunism, to the manipulation of marketing, and to the darker world of self-destructive degeneracy and underhanded dealings that lie on the fringe of morality and the legitimate economy that sometimes veer out into the black space of fraud, bribery, and violence. The gritty prose and rough vernacular of the culture and the trade, the callousness and the resignation that erodes into weary disaffection, the scandal, the pace of a restless tour bus and sweating, scampering roadies all make this the perfect rock novel. And the No Horesehit factor is plainly evident.
