The Seger Connection

Randall Roberts (Los Angeles Times) reviews RARAF:

Eddy’s work is compiled in Rock and Roll Always Forgets: A Quarter Century of Music Criticism, a career overview whose very title is contrarian: The writer’s got a problem with the premise of Bob Seger’s hit song “Rock and Roll Never Forgets.” He offers evidence with the lost artists, one-hit wonders, egocentric blowhards and various inspired eccentrics that he’s championed since writing early-1980s pieces on a budding genre called “rhymed funk,” soon dubbed rap music.
