    I'm 61% of the way through and it's an easy and fairly entertaining read (and worth the price of the Kindle download). The descriptions of life as a roadie make me think of the Roadies TV series. The book was written friend who would get "Norton" telling stories and then write them up so it jumps around a bit and there is some repetition but it works because it's like you are there listening to him. He became Glenn's guy after saving Glenn from falling off the stage one night. Not surprisingly, it has a lot more about Glenn than the other band members.

    I'm getting the sense that it's not a tale of debauchery and excess, more of a "day in the life" sort of book?

    ha ha, that one was less a book review and more of a personal assessment of the author.

    More a series of anecdotes and little in the way of debauchery and excess. There are a few references to the white powder and gambling and we also learn Glenn's signature dish when wooing a lady.

    Norton started working for the band in 1980 (or possibly 1979, it's hard to tell) but worked for Glenn for the next decade before setting up Soundtrack (with Glenn as partner). Obviously, he liked (and owed a lot to) Glenn, Don was OK as a boss and could be a lot of fun, Timothy was no trouble, everyone loved Joe but Felder not so much.

    The biggest problem with this kind of memoir is that they are written decades later when memories aren't as sharp as they used to be. What a pity that no one kept a diary.

    I should receive my copy of the book early this week. Hope I learn some new stuff. And, as for the 'reviewer', I hope it did her some good to air her dirty laundry.

    Wow - that woman gave some "review" ! Hopefully they will be able to make amends.
    I think I will also order the book.
