"Kill Your Idols" topples our music icons in critiques by contemporary music writers. We haven't read this, but we wish someone would.
Extra credit for a book review.
UPDATE: Reading the reviews at Amazon.com, we came across this:
Older rock critics NEVER liked The Best of the Doors, Dark Side of the Moon, Ram, and Sgt. Pepper's (or for that matter, most of 'em, Kick Out the Jams, which DeRogatis's hero Lester Bangs tried to kill on contact), so what's the point here? A slim pretense on which to hang a payday, but then, that's authorial style for ya. And by the way, if somebody can't hear what's great about Exile on Main Street and the Sex Pistols, they're the dope.--Dave Marsh"
Wait, is that the same Dave Marsh who used to write for "Rolling Stone"? Hmmm.
