Overview

With this shocking tell-all, revealing the all-true, 100% fake secrets about music’s biggest names, Jon Glaser—a writer for Late Night with Conan O'Brien, and the creator and star of Adult Swim’s Delocated—is about to rock the world of, well, rock and roll. The long-buried (or possibly, never-yet-imagined) dreadful secrets of music’s most notable talents—including Prince’s bar mitvah remixes, Fleetwood Mac’s deals with McDonald’s, and more—are, in the vein of John Hodgman’s More Information Than You Require and The Onion’s Our Dumb Century, a wry and blasphemous tribute to the popular culture icons we hold dear.

The Good Stuff * Truly unique, I can honestly say I have never read anything quite like this before * You will snort out loud at times - obviously still have not learned to read stuff like this on public transit * Prince's set list for Spielberg's daughters bat mitzvah is hilarious * The reason behind the naming of the Butthole surfers will make you snort coffee out your nose -- trust me DO NOT read this bit in public * The before they made it section is funny * Quick short read when you are looking for something to pass the timeThe Not so Good Stuff * A little too obscene at times & I am not prudish * Expected it to be funnier * lot of it lost on me since I am really not the intended audience for this one * The Rod Stewart bit grossed me out!Favorite Quotes/Passages"And your suggestion of "several slices of Lindsey Bucking-ham, white cheddar cheese that represents the cocaine Stevie Nicks is addicted to, Mick Fleet-wood smoked bacon, and John and Christine McVie-al (veal)" does sound yummy." But two all beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles, onions, on a sesame seed bun seems to work very well for us, so we're going to stick with that.""The father of the Butt-hole Surfers' lead singer Gibby Haynes, was a Navy SEAL who was killed in the line of duty while surfing the butthole of Idi Amin."What I Learned * About Paul Anka berating his band and some of the quotes from this recording were used in Ocean's Thirteen * Nothing else since it is all fake -- but it was funWho should/shouldn't read * This is one for fans of rock and roll, especially classic rockers * Not for prudish, there is a lot of obscenity and naughty descriptions * Great coffee table book, will start some interesting discussions * Again if you are easily offended by off colour language, this will offend you!3 Dewey'sI received this from HarperPerennial in exchange for an honest review

LOVED IT -- THIS BOOK ROCKED! I think this book is what happens when you mix a rock nerd with some photoshop skills, some old paper and the ability to think in the absurd. The "lost" lyrics are spectacular and I have a feeling that they probably could have been the actual lyrics in some cases. My all time favorite is the letter from Ringo telling his mates that he is starting a Beatles Tribute band, which is something that isn't really so far from the truth with his All...moreLOVED IT -- THIS BOOK ROCKED! I think this book is what happens when you mix a rock nerd with some photoshop skills, some old paper and the ability to think in the absurd. The "lost" lyrics are spectacular and I have a feeling that they probably could have been the actual lyrics in some cases. My all time favorite is the letter from Ringo telling his mates that he is starting a Beatles Tribute band, which is something that isn't really so far from the truth with his All Starr Band. This is one of those books that are coffee table worthy. It would also make the perfect gift for that uncle you never know what to buy. I received this book at no cost from the publisher in exchange for my honest review.
