Those in the fields of pop culture, American culture, and music will find much to explore and enjoy in this massive, comprehensive tome. Likewise, fans will find this to be the definitive, quintessential, "can't do without it" book. There are tons of photos that even the most ardent fans may not have ever seen. At first, you are simply going to find yourself flipping through the pages, being thrilled by one photo after the next. Once that wears off, you will settle into the text. Here's is where the journey begins in earnest.There is a gratitude here that is deeply compelling. Likewise, ummm, you will find an occasional, bizarre gem among this recounting of these friends' most extraordinary lives. (Be on the look-out for a BBQ Grilled Cheese recipe).From what I can currently determine, I believe the final version of this book will be an absolute boon to music-lovers, pop-culture fanatics, scholars, and fans. I've already put the finalized version in my cart ... yeah, it's kinda that amazing!Do not hesitate to buy this.
