With “Waiting for the Punch” Marc Maron & Brendan McDonald have Created Something for Everyone

Waiting for the Punch by Marc Maron and Brendan McDonald Book Review

Waiting for the Punch by Marc Maron and Brendan McDonald might be one of the best compilations of stories you’ll ever read. It’s part manifesto, as the introductions that Maron writes in this book are just as insightful and impactful as the stories that are contained in each chapter.

It’s part self-help book, as you can’t help but put each nugget of truth in the context of your own life. And lastly, it’s part historical catalog of the human experience.

Red Alert by Peter Bryant

Red Alert by Peter Bryant is a Chilling Tale and a Must Read

Despite the time that has passed, the advances in technology and politics, Red Alert by Peter Bryant is still a chilling tale when it is viewed in its original text and not the satirical lens of the great Stanley Kubrick film, Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb.

“Rocks” by Joe Perry is a Great Memoir from One of the Greatest Guitarist

Rocks by Joe Perry is a Great Memoir from One of the Greatest Guitarist

Sure, I just reread the Aerosmith Autobiography, so why am I reading another book that basically tells the same story? Well, it’s because it’s a great story, one worth covering from multiple angles. Also, I wanted to know more about what happened during The Joe Perry Project years AND a little more about what happened after that first band autobiography ended which was around the Nine Lives recording…

But I wasn’t prepared for the amazing musical momentum within Joe Fucking Perry.
