The book has 327 pages of musical trivia and facts ranging in particular singers or bands to where they died. In defense of the author though, he did an excellent job in his research and the book is not meant to be read as a novel but as a source for the musical aficionado. The content is divided up into sections beginning alphabetically with singers and bands, then goes through places, landmarks, deaths, memorials. He includes photos, addresses, and phone numbers when at all possible. In the back of the book, the author lists 100 songs for the classic road trip and albums (just in case you want to listen to the whole thing), his own personal top 25, and a list of musical stores across the country. This book no doubt has it all and that is why it gets 4 stars from me. Disclosure: I picked up a copy of this book at my local library. The views expressed here are 100% my own and may differ from yours. ~Michelle aka Naila Moon

    Interesting to read about memorials, museums, and locations where significant members of the musical community stayed, played, recorded, or grew up.

    One of the better rock and roll factoid books around. Nice for killing a few minutes or planning trip activities.

    This book worked for me since I an from Calif and I have seen a lot of these performers live. I lived in Palm Springs where Elvis had his honeymoon house and they rent it out for parties now. So finding out all this info was great.

    Relatively entertaining guidebook of (mostly classic) rock landmarks. Good as a jumping-off-point for pop-culture scandals in the music world, too.

    A quick, entertaining read that appealed to the rock fan, death hag, and history buff in me. Nails down the locations where rock stars partied, did shocking things, were born, died, and are buried.
