Rock star egos, concept albums, pretentious behavior, nonsense songs, and silly sunglasses are all targeted in this bile-spitting, spleen-venting, comical rant through the utter ridiculousness of rock 'n' roll's raucous history  Like the author's bitingly hilarious Crap Lyrics, this book celebrates the rampant stupidity, misguided experimentalism, and occasionally inspired Rock star egos, concept albums, pretentious behavior, nonsense songs, and silly sunglasses are all targeted in this bile-spitting, spleen-venting, comical rant through the utter ridiculousness of rock 'n' roll's raucous history  Like the author's bitingly hilarious Crap Lyrics, this book celebrates the rampant stupidity, misguided experimentalism, and occasionally inspired mania that has made rock 'n' roll so much more exciting than just a form of music.

    This book is as the title says however I didn't have lots of laughs with it though equally I found some of it quite boring. I am glad I read it and it is completely out of my safety zone however that said I would not really recommend someone rush out and buy it.
