I don't give out many five-star ratings, but this one was really a gem. First of all, the author played bass with Steppenwolf, a band I have loved since I was 9 years old (and still listen to). This gave an incredible authenticity to the main character, a "has been" musician in 1999 who had been "almost famous" in the early seventies. There was a "jam scene" in this book that took me back YEARS and invoked the incredible and almost indescribable feeling of playing in a band and discovering the magic that comes with creative spontaneity. Aside from all that, the writing here was first-rate...very professional. The plot was clever and unpredictable, full of both wit and suspense, and always kept my interest. I'm looking forward to reading Chad Peery's other "Rock Fiction" book "Stealing Margo" soon.
