Cue Bruce Springsteen's GLORY DAYS Trivia/Memories

I received this book in exchange for an unbiased review. I absolutely loved it!

Rock Trivia Madness is another arrow in the quiver of Bill O'Neill. O'Neill has teamed up with Ryan Connor to write a fantastic book about musicians and music from the 1960s to the 1990s.

Along with the trivia, like the fact that Black Sabbath dabbled in the occult and
David Bowie almost became a Buddhist, for example, I really enjoyed hearing about which musicians/bands inspired younger generations.

Scott Miller is a great narrator, worthy of the 5 star performance I have given him. He is engaging and upbeat.

Bill O'Neill (along with Ryan Connor) provides great collection of facts and odd trivia that you will not find anywhere else. Each section has a Q and A that reinforces what the listener has just heard. I loved it and cannot wait for the next "odd trivia" book from O'Neill.

The only downside to this book is that it makes me feel old because I remember most of these 'mad moments.' *Sigh*

Awesome Rock Stories!

While listening to this book, I almost had to stop a few times to listen to the music if the rock legends mentioned. However, I couldn't stop. The stories were great!!!
