Long overdue. Hope us Americans can get the hardback edition someday.

there was a good piece on 'Here And Now' on NPR with Dawson, talking about Nicky and his book.

Nice book. There´s a (short) thread about it already smiling smiley

I am midway through mine. Its an interesting read.
Dawson is clever in the way he organizes the chapters, so they are easily accessible after period/group. It means a Beatles fan can (second time around) go directly to the Beatles chapters..or if you´re a Stones fan go directly to "She´s a Rainbow"...you get the point.

It will be interesting to see whether Dawson shreds any light on the musical techniques or playing style of Nicky, rather than "just" naming dates and sessions. So far its all good.
