No one explodes one of the longest-held misconceptions of music history better than Steve Lukather and his band Toto. The dominant pop-culture sound of the late 1970s and '80s was not in fact the smash and sneer of punk, but a slick, polished amalgam of rock and R&B that was first staked out on Boz Scaggs' Silk Degrees. That album was shaped in large part by the founding members of Toto, who were emerging as the most in-demand elite session muso-crew in LA, and further developed on the band's self-titled three-million-selling debut smash of 1978.

This is a great insight into one of the worlds greatest and prolific musical heros- unknown in the public’s eye however unless you’ve lived under a rock for the last few decades, you will have heard Lukather’s playing whether you know it or not. This is a biography of a Legend!

I’ve liked many similar themes authors, and enjoyed the Harry Potter series so The Cuckoo’s Calling was an easy choice to make. It may not have lived up to my expectations and I delayed listening to it in case of disappointment, but, I loved it. Typically clear wording, a captivating plot, characters you can easily picture and a stunning performance by Robert Glenister. I’m now going to work my way through the rest of the series.

In 1984, at the age of 20, Duff McKagan left his native Seattle - partly to pursue music, but mainly to get away from a host of heroin overdoses then-decimating his closest group of friends in the local punk scene. In LA only a few weeks and still living in his car, he answered a want ad for a bass player placed by someone who identified himself only as "Slash." Soon after, the most dangerous band in the world was born. Guns N' Roses went on to sell more than 100 million albums worldwide.

A really enjoyable story from Duffs point of view regarding GnR. I was also surprised by how interesting a life Duff had led especially his post Guns career. Highly recommended.

The most decorated homicide detective in NYPD history, Dave Gurney, is trying to adjust to his life of quasi-retirement when a young woman who is producing a documentary on a notorious murder spree seeks his counsel. Soon after, Gurney begins feeling threatened: a razor-sharp hunting arrow lands in his yard, and he narrowly escapes serious injury in a booby-trapped basement. As things grow more bizarre, he finds himself reexamining the case of The Good Shepherd, which 10 years before involved a series of roadside shootings and a rage-against-the-rich manifesto.
