Slightly misleading title as most of the book isn t really focused on Weather Report that band being only a small part of Erskine s career in terms of years and discography I bought the book for the Jaco bits and those anecdotes along with the Zawinul stories are the best parts of this autobio Along the way I learned I had Peter Erskine in my collection than I realized for example Joni Mitchell s Both Sides Now Steely Dan s Live In America which is unsurprising as he s played on than 600 recordings If you re not a drummer or haven t heard some of the music he s referring to those parts can be tedious but they also may inspire you to seek out some music you haven t heard before A fun read overall Dictionnaire des onomatopées profundity of experience and ideas This book should be read not only by every drummer but by every musician Even dedicated amateurs of music will find it entertaining and worthwhile.
