I disagree with the previous "1 star" review ... I think it's unfair for anyone to leave a negative review after reading only ONE of the 495 pages ... of course, I have also not read the entire book (LoL) ... but ... my google searches have taken me here several times before - and - I found the sections on bands I am familiar with to be very accurate ... anyway ... I am leaving this "5 star" rating to help balance it back out.
