Tony Fletcher

Tony Fletcher, who was born in Yorkshire, England, almost the exact week Keith Moon joined the band that would become the Who, still treasures the great drummer's autograph on a 1978 issue of the magazine Jamming!, which he started as a schoolboy in London. In the several lifetimes since, Fletcher has written books on R.E.M. and Echo and the bunnymen, contributed to magazines, newspapers, and television shows all over the world, and worked extensively as a DJ and A&R consultant. He now lives in Brooklyn, New York, with his wife and young son.

    This will mostly appeal to fans of R.E.M. or those who enjoy music/rock biographies. I had read the original version of this book that was published just as R.E.M. was breaking big. The first half of this book, which is basically the same as that edition, does a great job of explaining how the band became the godfathers of the Alternative rock scene. I particularly enjoyed the chapters that deal with their "Out of Time" album through the "Reveal" album (the book came out in 2002, so does not go all the way to the 2011 breakup of the band. I thought it might feel like a bit of gyp to read a book that I'd basically bought before, but with the revisions to the earlier chapters, and the longer-than-I-expected section dealing with the WB years, I found this a very enjoyable read....and one that set me re-listening to my old CDs as I was reading.
