Really a good book... rare for me to read a "non-fiction" book and be sorry it was over...

Although I was raised in Orange County in the 50's and 60's (graduated from Fullerton High School), I was surprised to learn a lot that I had not known previously, both about Fender and Les Paul.

The section where Jimi Hendrix comes on stage to "jam" with Cream was absolutely priceless! I'd heard of it before this, but the version in the book is marvelous and truly captures the insane magic of Jimi's playing, relative to the players of the day...

Heck, I don't even play a solid body electric and I'd recommend the book to any fan of electric guitars!

where we go from here, though no one will get out alive..."
