Read full description of the books:



A more accurate title would be "Timothy White's Greatest Hits." This is an anthology of Timothy White's more spectacular writing career in the music biz, which leaves many strange omissions and condensations just because White either:

a) did not get to interview the particular subject
b) White personally did not like the particular subject

This winds up being a rather choppy and unsatisfying overlook of rock and pop music from Robert Johnson to Prince (yes -- THAT Prince!)

Many key players in the history of pop and rock music get really short shrift from White -- only three (or four) pages for Bob Dylan? And one page there devoted to Paul Simon's compliments about Dylan?SERIOUSLY? He focuses only on the long interviews he happened to snag in his career -- which makes for some odd choices included here such as Rickie Lee Jones and the Beastie Boys (and most of that profile was spent on how much people hated the Beastie Boys -- including the Boys themselves.)

The Pink Floyd segment was criminal -- all it talked about was how pissed off Roger Waters was at the remaining band members in the late 1980s, which culminated in a bizarre years-long courtroom dance which would Waters would later regret.

There were a few really good interviews: Peter Gabriel, Elvis Costello, Pete Townshend, Paul McCartney and David Bowie in particular (in fact, my library's copy has a broken spine right at the David Bowie interview) -- but most of these are average and mired with some pretentious prose from White's observations and his annoying tendency to try to humorously insert famous song lyrics of that artist in the profile or interview.

It's a long slog. You're really just better off skipping this book and listening to the music.
