GREAT BOOK, but

I WAS HOPING TO READ MORE ABOUT CERTAIN ARTISTS LIKE "JOHN NITZINGER" AND "B.W. STEVENSEN" ,BUT THIS BOOK DOES HAVE GREAT RANGE IN IT'S ARTIST INFO! KEEP AN EYE OUT FOR "NITZINGER", HE'S COMING BACK AT YOU!!!

In a word... fantastic!

One of the finest writers in the catagory to come along in a long time. His work is percise and witty. This book is a must have for your music collection. A fantastic referrence.

Informative but flawed

As someone who has been a fan of the Austin music scene since the late 70's, I enjoyed reading about the bands I've followed over the years. There are lots of interesting tidbits in the book, but on the negative side Mr Koster tends to use the same phrases and descriptions too many times. He also could have used a fact-checker, he says the Sex Pistols played at Randy's Radio when it was actually Randy's Rodeo and he mixes up Southwest Texas State Univ with Southwestern Univ, just to name a couple mistakes. Overall, I'd recommend this book to anyone who is a music fan and is interested in the history of music in Texas.

who is Sweetie Pie?

A friend of mine picked this book up and he really liked it. I have yet to read it, but I did notice that there is a band from El Paso named "Sweetie Pie" mentioned in Ch.5 (I think). I was wondering if anybody knows anything about that band and would like to share some info. I think I remember that band, and I would just like to verify. Thanks.

What an amazing book!

This is the most incredible book music book I've ever read. Mr. Koster has collected the most interesting selection of artists all held by the common bond of having Texas as their home state. The blues section is full of revelations on nearly every page. Who knew so many incredible, world famous musicians came from the great state of Texas?
