    This is a Goodreads win book-. I thought this was an interesting book. There are lots of pictures, and a book about what it is like, from someone who has been there, in the music industry.

    interesting information about music and musicians, including possibly someone. Created a little mystery for me. I'm wondering if the Linda Robinson mentions by the author as his piano teacher is the same one who used to play the piano for The Bellaires? interesting information about music and musicians, including possibly someone.

    Just a short memoir with a short couple of pages about some of the people Tony Brown has worked with throughout his career. It was ok for what it was and what I think he meant it to be.

    This is certainly a fast read since it's mostly pictures of the author with his famous friends. There are some interesting tidbits about the music industry but a lot of 'filler' (more pictures of Tony) too.
