    A Good Read for Baby Boomers who grew up with The Band

    A very interesting history of The Band. Much more upbeat than Helm's version. Wonder why he didn't do a postscript on the fate of his band mates, especially his falling out with Levin.

    Very interesting and inciteful look into the making and life of a ground breaking rock and roll band. The successes seem muted and the hard times real. My one dislike is the over the top amount of name dropping...it gets tiring. The Band and their music was magical and great but the " look who I know" bits hint at insecurity..otherwise highly rcommend !

    Very good read but,

    Excellent work leading up to the Last Waltz but what happened next? I think the next 40 years must have including something of interest to we old Canadian hippies, even if it is just good business and the mastery of doing nothing😎

    If you were fortunate enough to experience pop musics creative period through the 60's, 70's, and 80's, this book is a must read. What a joyous revelation to follow Robbie's journey from his beginnings as a keen teenage guitarist through the fascinating events that brought him to the mountain top that was 'The Last Waltz'. An addictive read crafted by a warm, intelligent, and gifted artist.

    Testimony Review

    An enjoyable read for fans of rock history or musicians interested in either the music or history of that era(1960-1976 approx). Easy to read and a fast read. Robertson’s writing style is not “literature” but is similar to his songwriting style; full of metaphors and imagery. Enlightening in some ways ( the pervasive and easy drug culture and it’s damage) but curiously flat in bringing some of his characters/ compatriots to life ( again, he is not George Saunders). But overall I would recommend it to rock n roll fans and pop culture buffs.
