This book is loooong out of print and I doubt you could ever find it, but it is the BEST book about the Kinks and one of the best rock and roll books ever written.

Rogan is an English music writer, and that means he writes without all the noisy, blustery, self-promoting rhetoric you get from American rock writers like Dave Marsh or Griel Marcus. He isn't trying to liberate the proletariat or put himself in the literary pantheon with Ralph Waldo Emerson and Mark Twain. He's just telling the story
