    Rage to rocker saga An easy to read and engaging story. Could not put it down. Flows like a movie script. Good plotline and interesting characters. A very enjoyable read, especially if you grew up loving rock music in the late seventies or eighties.

    I got to see a rock star junkie -- but from a different, more benevolent perspective. Very refreshing.
