    This is a terrific idea, but the actual read was disappointing The writing quality varied quite a bit, but none of it was that great The topics fell too hard on bars and nightclubs, and there were several giant gaps in what could have been covered.

    Interesting premise, odd execution.

    Interesting concept, but drags on a bit too long, and may have worked better with tighter editing, or perhaps by mixing up the interviews oral history style.
