I Never Met a Story I Didn't Like
So let me start by saying I acknowledge all the problematic things he says are incorrect and outdated.
That being said, I liked this book. It felt like an uncle that was trying to fuck with you telling you stories. Like if you saw cows on a hill and he said 'You know their legs are shorter on one side so they can stand on hills like that." And you just believe him. It like that, but also with the corrections of "Nah cows just have knees dumb ass, they bend their legs like you would." Not that any of that is mentioned in the book.
So you hear about the world of rock folk/country music from behind the scenes and how to get into it and how it is in it. He introduces you to a cast of characters that almost seem to cool to have existed. The chapter play a train song is probably my favourite.
Also somehow I managed to end up with a signed copy of this book?
So that's cool. Even though I hadn't heard of Todd Snider before, I have now and I leave you with the last lines of this book.
'Build a man a fire, and he'll be warm for the night. Set a man on fire, he'll be warm for the rest of his life.'
Would I re-read it: Na.
Would I recommend it: Yes.
Am I going to keep it: Yes.
