The poems pay homage to the artists--Dylan, Clapton, Lennon, Crow, The Beatles, Elvis--and track the poet's personal musical biography: his experiences and memories the music both relates to and marks. The poems, like the music, have plenty of swagger. Finally, though, they remind us that, at their best, poetry is music, music poetry.
