"From the beginning, The Smiths sensed greatness, and to realise that greatness meant a refusal to accept confinement to the margins." --Tony Fletcher

His biography of drummer Keith Moon has been named in many a Best Music Book list; his biography of R.E.M., Remarks Remade, has been published in over half a dozen countries; and history of the NYC music scene, All Hopped Up and Ready To Go: Music from the Streets of New York, 1927-77, was widely and positively received upon publication in 2009.
