Review

"Before there is a record....there is a song. The writers finally have their day in the sun, thanks to Bill Carroll. His love for music is matched only by his tenacity and we get to reap the benefit of that union. This book is a most unique compendium and Bill is the only guy on Earth who would undertake such a project. This one is a keeper on my bookshelf."

Lou Simon

"Pop songsters, step out of your cubicles and into the spotlight! Ranking the Rock Writers is a remarkable achievement given the size of the task and the tangle of information."
Dann Isbell

"Here at last is the go-to book for anyone wondering just who it was who wrote the words and music of their favorite hits: the unforgettable songs which speak to and for their heart."

Gary Theroux
