Bear with me, this is relevant.
They are discussing Bob Stanley’s book “Yeah! Yeah! Yeah!: The Story of Pop Music from Bill Haley to Beyoncé”. I have been considering buying it since reading the Bee Gees section on the Paris Review blog (islands-in-the-stream – some nice weird brother parallels) but this interview opens with the following:
“What changed for the American edition?
The UK edition has a lot of footnotes which were mostly dropped for the U.S. edition. A few names were edited out (Roy Wood and Sparks I remember noticing were absent)…”
So, if anyone else is interested, buy the UK edition. (It’s expensive once shipping is included so you could just wait until I get my copy because of course I will post any relevant excerpts.)
