Brian is just the real deal. A legend, but a man who is do down to earth, and genuinely funny. Read the whole thing between waiting on line, the train home and finishing after dinner. Funny book and recommend if you are fan of the band or like interesting tidbits on various differnt cars and his experinces with them.
