Susan’s Book Talk: A question and a covet


We’ll start with the question. I don’t remember how I even came across it now, but I’ve got a link open to a page at Amazon (and you guys know of my vast love for Amazon, even as I see good sales for the books on their Kindle).

It’s a book called Willie’s Bar & Grill: A Rock ‘n’ Roll Tour of America in the Age of Terror. It was written by Rob Hirst. It’s apparently about Midnight Oil on tour post-911. I’m finding even less about it at Powell’s. I found a copy at BookMooch, but the woman who owns it asks that I not mooch from her unless I also send books outside my country, as she’s in Australia. I agree that it’s fair; I *used* to send books outside the country, but was getting so many requests, I had to stop.

So… anyone know anything about this book??? Got a copy you’re willing to send my way?

Now. For the other book. It’s coming out May 3 and all you Gleeks will want it. Yup, it’s The Untold Story of Journey (the real title is, of course, Don’t Stop Believin’. How fitting.).

Neil Daniels is the author, and it sounds like this dude and I need to hook up. His website brags he’s been “chronicling the world of hard rock and heavy metal since 2007.”


I WAS going to point you to his website, but it’s sadly out of date (and has way too much flash and not enough content). Maybe this is another question… I don’t know… Blabbermouth is talking about the book, but there’s no mention on the author’s own website…

Interestingly, I have mentioned Mr. Daniels before. Back in 2009, in fact.

Definitely things that make you go hmmm…..

If you know anything about either book, holler. You know I’m into it.

Oh, and if you’re wondering why I haven’t been coveting those two romances that people are talking about, there’s a reason for that. I’m waiting for them to turn up in my PO Box so I can read them and talk about them properly. *grin*

    It’s all totally new to me. Well, except the bands themselves. Frankly, if it isn’t like Trevor’s Song, I’m not that much into it.
