Winnipeg Free Press - PRINT EDITION
On The Night Table
"My favourite book this year has been Please Step Back by a guy named Ben Greenman. That book freaked me out. It's kind of based on a Sly Stone-type person who forms a band in the '60s with white people and black people. It's really well done. When I was done with the book I wanted to hear the album the guy was working on, but there is no album. He's writing the lyrics and adding the horns and arranging it. I've been reading lots of rock magazines and bios. I even read Sammy Hagar's Red: My Uncensored Life in Rock and I don't even like the guy. It was a unique rock book, though."
