Book Review: “Rock & Roll’s Most Wanted” by Stuart Shea


Rock and Roll's Most Wanted Stuart SheaRock & Roll’s Most Wanted: The Top 10 Book of Lame Lyrics, Egregious Egos, and Other Oddities by Stuart Shea is another book I picked up for free at The Book Thing in Baltimore this past March. Released in August 2006, this 304 page book is an amusing collection of rock n roll Top 10 lists.

There isn’t really much more to say about this book than what’s already in the title. If you’re wondering if they Beatles get mention, the answer is “yes…often!” There is even one Top Ten list of who’s been called or deemed worthy of the title of The Fifth Beatle. I admit that some of the author’s choices in the category are a little shaky in my opinion, but you’ll have to get the book and decide for yourself if you agree or disagree.

I found this book not only entertaining, but also enlightening and educational when it comes to learning about some of my favorite rock stars. At times, though, it does show it’s age when it talks of personalities that are no longer with us on this earth. But, if you can find this book in your local library or cheap used copy online, pick it up for some easy reading and enjoyment. And for that reason…

I rate this book, 3 out of 4 Beetles!
