Too Late To Stop Now is More Rock N Roll War Stories. This book contains 42 different stories – including such greats as Elton John, Joe Cocker, The Rolling Stones and Elvis Costello and spam from 1974 to 2014! Each Chapter is from a different point in time so you can either read straight through, pick and choose or do a couple every night! Some of these stories may be hard to believe but are all equally fascinating. At one time I wanted to be a music reporter, so it’s fun to see all I was missing out on. Or was I?
I received a free e-copy of this book from NetGalley to write this review. I was not otherwise compensated.

– What happened when Nick Lowe and 20 of his mates flew off to Texas to join the Confederate Air Force
