NOTHIN' BUT A GOOD TIME The Uncensored History of the '80s Hard Rock Explosion

by | Read by Gary Furlong, Amy McFadden, Tom Beaujour, Richard Bienstock

Contemporary Culture • 16 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2021

Gary Furlong uses a friendly, objective style as he narrates this oral history of hard rock music. Amy McFadden helps by voicing the handful of women involved. Considering that this work includes some contentious contributors with divergent memories, Furlong and McFadden maintain an impartial, nonjudgmental point of view. Most recollections support the Spinal Tap stereotype of hard rock musicians--brainless hotel stunts, tour bus shenanigans, and similar decadent behavior. But some reminiscences are frighteningly grim--for example, Jack Rusell of Great White describes shooting a woman while high on PCP. There's also plenty of sex, drugs, and trivia. This head-banger audiobook should please hairspray-band historians and lovers of rock memoirs--or anyone who wonders why Milton Berle appeared in a Ratt video.
