Did anyone else buy the book by Rob Jovanovic? I'm about halfway through, it's pretty interesting.

Now I'm hungry, now I'm drunk.  Now I'm burning like a flaming pig.  Oh yeah, my goodness.

This looks interesting. I might check it out when I have some spare cash. Unless you have, ahem, an eBook to share?

I've got this book. It's a very well done book, highly recommended.

 

Note that it's from 2001 though so it contains nothing about the last 14 years of Beck's career. I wonder if Mr Jovanovic is working on a follow-up. With Beck having won the big prize with his latest album, there might be publishers interested in putting out such a work.

So I did some research. Mr Jovanovic has been busy penning other music books too. Check out his website at http://www.jovanovic.co.uk

 

Unfortunately, I don't see any mentions of a Beck biography Vol 2 in the pipeline. And the Contact page on that site is under construction.

The edition I have is from 2015 and spans his entire career through Morning Phase. Very interesting read.

Ah, ok, now I get it. Throwing Frisbees at the Sun is the part two of Jovanovic's Beck biography. The book I was talking about is called On a Backwards River, also by Jovanovic, and it's from 2001. I've got to get this second book too!

I'm sorry everyone for causing confusion.
