Reviews

"Pegg reminds us that if Elvis led the youthquake of the 1950s, it was Berry who became its unlikely poet laureate."
-"Shepherd Express, January 9, 2003
"A measured, carefully constructed tome built upon meticulous research, yet it avoids the sort of dense, impenetrable style of so many scholastic rock bios."
-St. Louis Riverfront Times
"The staggering amount of research Pegg has done into Berry's southern roots and St. Louis makes its own statement about Berry's stature as an artist, while the analysis of individual songs...places Berry in a historical continuum while still conveying his out-of-the-blue uniqueness."
-Montreal Gazette
"Pegg's scholarship is tidy, his writing is clear and straightforward."
-The Los Angeles Times
"Ambitious."
-Mojo
