You’ve got to love the only rock critic whose favorite record was Lou Reed’s Metal Machine Music.

Craig Hodgetts

The freewheeling, free-associative bacchanal that takes over the minute you open this book is like a tidal wave of insights, fevered imaginings, and half-baked truths that position Bangs's writing, like my mentor James Stirling’s architecture, at the forbidden intersection of the animal and the spiritual.
