In the spirit of rock and roll, esteemed music journalist and author Jeb Wright gets into the heart of his subjects by asking the right questions (even the hard ones) and by really listening to the answers. Nowadays, there are too many so-called interviewers on the Web and in print who canít extract a story because they aske canned, run-of-the-mill questions void of any pulse. And sadly, these so called journos often donít shut up and listen long enough for the artist to really open up and tell the story that the reader would want to know. Going into the first few pages of Jebís book, it seems apparent that heís been a concert-going type of dude and music fan for a long time. Stadium Rock is a series of intriguing interviews captured with several iconic rockers, taken from 1999 to 2008. Sammy Hagar, Joe Perry, Paul Rodgers, Steve Perry, Tom Scholz, Steve Miller, and Ted Nugent are some of the artists who tell their stories to the disarming journalist, who, by the time the interview is over, has made a friend by his caring interrogation.

Honorable mention: Ted Nugentís interview is a riot. The Nuge is still abundantly self-assured, and, as always, loudly opinionated.

Jeb Wright is a practitioner in the art of interview. Stadium Rock is a must read for the classic rock fan and for those soon to become one.
