Michael Steinman

I admire Nolan's book and have said so in print. What fascinates me is the capacity that Shaw, even dead, has to create rancorous reactions -- perhaps it was because every story Artie told had him as the hero, or at least the center? Perhaps it's also because of his long life: he had time to make many enemies! But Nolan's book is fair and balanced, with much new information, much of it sadly adding to the portrait of Artie as a great creative musician and deplorable man.

Rab Hines

Shaw would never have won - nor would he have accepted - anybody's Mr. Congeniality award, but what he says of Auld rings true. From what I've read of Auld, in Terry Gibbs' autobiography for example, he was a very dark character.

John P. Cooper

'I didn't like Buddy Rich at all, but I went to his funeral.'
