Bob, I avoided listening to this band for the longest time, because of the dumb-seeming (to me) name. But this music is great! Thanks for turning me on to it.

Just got the Chris Hillman bio.Should have some interesting tidbits about Gene.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:24am Joe M:

I'm not familiar with this Gene Clark song. It's killing me- those harmonies and 12 -strings!
  9:24am bigplanetnoise:

The first third of the Hillman book is a long read. It takes a while to get to the fun parts.
  9:24am Listener Robert:

For a second I thought it said, "Like the wrestlers want up above."
Avatar 9:25am Bob Brainen:

Zoot, I have to read that.
Glad to enjoyed Joe M.
But worth the read, Bob? Does he dwell on family background or something?

I must say, the Gene Clark "Mr. Tambourine Man" book was a depressing read. Took a few days to recover.

davek, you got it!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:28am melinda:

I don't know this series but I love Catherine Keener, this is great.
  9:29am bigplanetnoise:

Bob - yes - soooo much dwelling on incidental growing-up stories. Ten pages or so on his favorite horse, etc, etc. Some of those details are interesting - ie: the story about the real Old John Robertson, etc - but an editor was def needed. You’ll find yourself skimming, for sure.
  9:30am Jeff:

I liked the Hillman book. I was touched by his memories of his Jewish father, Chris’ aversion to racism at an early age, etc. I thought it was well written.
