Mark Boudreau in the Rock and Roll Report reviews a brand new Bomp! anthology:
“I can distinctly trace my introduction to rock and roll like it was yesterday. From my first pre-pubescent exposure to a live Beach Boys record in Grade 5 followed quickly thereafter by the hard rock blast of Cold Gin by KISS, what has stuck with me almost as much as the music has been those that have taught me along the way and introduced me to all kinds of amazing rock and roll. From KISS to the Rolling Stones, from Styx to Frank Zappa and from the Sex Pistols to Rush (niche-free even back then!), my desire and interest in not only listening to but reading about rock and roll grew in leaps and bounds.
“As I look back at my musical journey through the rock and roll landscape, three people come to mind as being essential, not only to my enjoyment of rock and roll but to broadening my musical horizons: Keith Richards, Peter Buck and the incomparable Greg Shaw.”
