The world's most popular group nearly pulled the plug in early 1969. Instead, they put most of their personal, artistic, and business differences aside to gather in the Abbey Road studio. There, reveling in new recording equipment and unabashed inspiration, they created a final, iconic album. ~ Reviewed by Mike Hare

Published: Dey Street Books - November 13th, 2018

Six hundred pages of sex, drugs and indie rock. Documenting the New York City rock explosion in the 2000s, Goodman interviews over 150 musicians, DJs, producers, journalists, record execs and NYC scenesters. Featuring the unruly rise to fame of bands like The Strokes, LCD Soundsystem, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, The White Stripes, Interpol, TV on the Radio, Grizzly Bear, MGMT, and Vampire Weekend to name a handful, this comprehensive oral history is funny, boisterous, and more gossipy than a tabloid. ~ Reviewed by Joe Michon-Huneau

Hey-ay, come out and play! This first-of-its-kind look into the pop/punk explosion of the early 1990s is a head-banging read. In the midst of Nirvana's slaughter of the hair metal bands of the 80s, punk music inspired by the innovators of the 70s and 80s rose up through the lens of alternative rock of bands like Green Day and the Offspring. It was never a smooth ride to the top though, as the successful bands in the scene were often accused of being sellouts and worse. A must read for fans of the era. ~ Reviewed by Chris Linendoll
