A fascinating & entertaining sliver of rock n' roll history Dec 13 2011
By Bullygirl - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I really enjoyed this book, a really entertaining romp! It was a fascinating look at an especially unique branch of the Detroit Rock n' Roll family tree, and how that branch extended to Ann Arbor, LA, Australia, the UK and beyond. The pranks and antics where a guilty pleasure, and it was choc full of awesome random details like a surprise apperance of a young Elton John in a gurrilla suit storming the stage at a Stooge show, to hanging with Bowie, to living in apartments with so many roaches that the foodbowl for the cat had to be floated in a moat of water so the bugs wouldn't get it first. Lot of comedy and tragedy - to make it a terrific read.

Ultimate tribute Oct. 24 2011
By Lester Bangs' Muse - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
First reaction can only be the one predicted by the author in his own book; another one? But, whereas the Iggy biog market peaked with Paul Trynka's final word, Callwood comes as a fan telling the story of all the Stooges and those who sailed in her, also covering the years between mid-1970s spit and early noughties reunion. His fan credentials can't be faulted, even including moving from London to Detroit while writing the book.

Iggy takes something of a back seat as Callwood coaxes interviews out of the late Ron Asheton, his brother Scott and other associates, including an account of the former's time in the often-overlooked Destroy All Monsters. Originally published in 2007, with foreword by Alice Cooper and afterword by Glen Danzig, the story is extended to last year's Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame induction, including Ron Asheton's shock death in January, 2009. The interview with Ron is one of his last and longest, while the rare words from Scott reveal his struggle to play in the Stooges without his brother after Iggy brought in James Williamson. Above anything, this quote-stacked work stands as an ultimate tribute to the quiet titan who `will be missed for as long as people are playing rock `n` roll.' Kris Needs
