    Hmmm... that's pretty high praise, maybe I should read Emerson's. I'm not an ELP fanatic, I have (and like) their 70s studio albums, but that's about it. Might be interesting to delve into the story of a musician I'm not as familiar with.

    One of the things that I like about it, is that he isn't shy about going behind the scenes about the band and his life on the road and is frank with his opinions on things. It's not one of those walking on eggshells, don't want to say anything remotely negative about anyone, type of bios.

    Yup, it has been a while since I read it, but Emerson pulls no punches. He lead the rock star life for sure, and appears to be pretty honest about how it all went down.
