Endorsing 'How the Beatles destroyed rock 'n roll'

Looks like Tom Waits likes Elijah Wald's book How the Beatles Destroyed Rock n Roll: An Alternative History of American Popular Music
I couldn't put it down. It nailed me to the wall, not bad for a grand sweeping in-depth exploration of American music with not one mention of myself. Wald's book is suave, soulful, ebullient and will blow out your speakers.

It's a real fine read on the history of America music, but the title's a publisher bait-and-switch. It's got next to nothing to do with the Beatles. Still a damn fine book.
