This is a fascinating read! The authors thoroughly document the very fascinating journey of Eric Carmen, a regular boy from Cleveland who was a young classical music prodigy who got "bitten" with the rock n roll bug after seeing the Beatles on Ed Sullivan. This book chronicles his growth from local teen bands through his time as the main songwriter and force behind Raspberries, the 70s Power Pop pioneers and then through his solo career. There is fascinating information about song writing as an art as well as the challenges presented by the music industry. The book is packed with fun details and insights directly from Eric and will be not only enjoyable for his fans, but for anyone with an interest in the music industry.
