You're in the early lead, how about that. All the right elements, but not the placement I'm looking for --
breasts really being the sought-after quality. But a hell of an album. Good call.

The cover of Blind Faith's only album has boobs, clouds, and a plane. Does that count?

Brockman - Haven't read the Wishbones, but now I'm remembering that title come up at least once or twice in conversation with reliable friends. Judging by the descriptions on product pages, that sounds more up my alley than Pollack. Thanks for the tip, and keep up the good news.

Hey, Stan T. -- have you tried
by Tom Perrotta? It's not nearly the equal of his masterpiece,
, but it's still a fun read in the Hornby vein. And maybe
Never Mind the Pollacks
? I haven't read it, but Neal Pollack is usually very funny -- and it is, after all, a novel about rock music.

This probably isn't the kind of book I'd read for gorgeous language or a great literary feel. I say that because it's being told by the guitar player. If these are the thoughts in his head... ON the other hand, it might be really funny or insightful or just, as you say, strange. I can't think of a lot of novels about rock music that I've loved, unless you count High Fidelity. Any suggestions out there?

My 2 cents: any opening that brings to mind Spinal Tap and Monty Python is worth reading on.
