    very well done book . . . . def a very worthy fun read . . . being that I am from CT . . . . but had some holes (missing rock stars acts that left a piece of their music here) in it for rock ( Joe Cocker -- Deep Purple - Ian Hunter -- Anthrax Club -- Diana Ross -- Chambers Brothers -- Harry Connick -- Mark Knaftlin of Paul Butterfield Blues band - Uptown Horn members . . . BUT STILL READ the BOOK :)
