> Any thoughts on the book?

I got it yesterday and browsed a little.
I'm going to read it after Christmas.
It's my X-mas present for myself. :)

It's 303 pages, 8 pages of pictures: photo of Jim & Meat 1981 ("The monster and his creator"), Bonnie ("In order to write Total Eclipse I had to envision a situation where Joan Sutherland is on a stage backed up by the Who and Phil Spector's group - and then I could go ahead")

Who's Joan Sutherland??

The last chapter is entitled "Jim Steinman's dream" and the last photo is from the new Bat musical, so it's really up-to-date.
Another chapter is entitled "Erections of the heart". :)

Opened the book randomly, read a few lines from the page and laughed at Jim's quote circa 1981.
About that period of creativity.

"I was creatively constipated; not to imply this is the stuff you'd be constipated with" he said. "Constipated with gold..."

Looking forward to reading the book soon.
