You have to really, really love music AND rock AND heavy metal and hair bands AND pop culture AND whining small town white boys who have no reason to be angry except that they are whining white boys that lived in a small town.

As a music lover, a pop culture junkie and a nostalgic head-banger I would have enjoyed this book a lot more if it was a third shorter but it was just filled with too much stuff that made me skip several pages at a time. Perfect example, where he listed the music you had to pay him to stop playing and why. I was glazing over by the 8th one.... and just skipped the pages all together when he reached the 15th one.

Still like him, will still continue to read him but need to take him in smaller doses.
