    I wish I could listen to some of these song over and over and over again. I would recommend listening to the music while reading. Some people I agreed with, and some I don’t. But all the songs were some of the best I heard.

    I loved this book because it tells you the history of musicians from this century and I would show this book to my friends! There were so much to read and learn about musicians and I would like to read it again! musicians will change the world!

    A real step into the classic music and seeing how much music has changed. Reading this book made feel as if I was actually in that time.

Well since I am lover for music I love this book I want to marry it and have all of the copy’s of it and give them to my family and read all of them twice

    I think this book was fascinating that it has info on people from Johnny Cash to Chuck Berry or at least I think it was Johnny Cash well if not I still remember reading it and saying “Are the Beatles really that old?” well of course everyone thinks that The Beatles are fabulous and such but I have read a few autobiographies on Queen and such but when I read this I was surprised because the style was extremely unique (Just like one of the Artists who had a write up Bob Marley!)

    This book gave just enough information on each music artist with out going overboard. The book was very interesting, I didn’t get a chance to listen to the CD’s that were included in the book, but my parents helped me youtube some of the songs. There are some pretty cool songs and they are not just country!
