    Seconded. I've just got to the late sixties and expect to be playing "Rock Bottom" imminently!

    Would also recommend Donald Fagen's book "Eminent Hipsters", it's superbly written... and btw., not really about Steely Dan.

    Everybody should read more books and spent less time on the internet! There's so much good writing out there at the moment.

    I not only read the Robert Wyatt book I immediately re-read it!
    An incredible journey and my estimation of the man and his music has gone up. He was already in my top 10.
    Yes, he is flawed, fallible and human...arent we all? The book brings all that to the front but also shines a light in his incredible talent and his ability to turn his disability into an opportunity rather than close doors for him.
    There are some very funny moments in it too. Book of the year for me.
