I knew most of them. Blame it on my wasted youth, I guess. Or my passion for rock biography, either one. I was a little annoyed at some of the inclusions, which basically concluded, "This song is about someone, but Carly isn't telling." Which we all knew already, thanks. Some of the photos were poignant and evocative- and some of the songs were old favorites. Worth leafing through in the waiting room, but I don't think I'd buy a copy. ( )
