Not at all definitive and

Not at all definitive and more a collection of stories than a cohesive narrative but it is quite interesting and entertaining. It seems terribly self-serving that all the laudatory blurbs are from people admiringly profiled in the book.

Some interesting individu

Some interesting individual story lines on Dylan, the Beatles, etc. but sorting through the clutter to keep the record companies and the personnel straight was a chore. Reads more like a reference work than a tight fluid narrative.
