Great for Rock and Roll music history facts about the women behind the songs.
How many people can lay claim to having 3 songs written about themselves...Patty Boyd.
A real fun and quick read!

Mildly interesting background on several well-known pop songs, although it inexplicably leaves out some famous ones like "And I Love Her", "Annie's Song", "I'm Looking Through You", and "Sara Smile" and "My Lady Darbanville". Agree with other reviews on the plodding style.

Read about half of it. It's fun for about half an hour.
