THE ARMAGEDDON RAG is back! Here is a literary trip like no other-part murder mystery, part psychedelic archive, with the pulse of rock 'n' roll driving the pace. THE ARMAGEDDON RAG follows journalist Sandy Blair as he investigates the bizarre and brutal murder of a rock promoter who made millions with his '60s band, the Nazgul. Sandy's search leads him back to his own past-and into a nightmare of rage, anarchy, and hope. Revisiting old friends and haunts, he discovers that the pent-up passions of a generation are exploding in a deadly revolution. And when a charismatic new leader brings the Nazgul back to life, they return with a mind-blowing, mind-bending requiem for the age. A comic, nostalgic thriller with brilliant storytelling at every turn, this is a must-read for anyone who prizes innovative fiction.

Nothing exceptional here. A quick and easy read. I can see why Steven King loved this book, it is very much written in his style. A good story about a once famous rock band.

Martin's full-fledged creation of this fictional band is exquisite, inventing an entire discography and song lyrics that fit with the period. His inclusion of songs and references to The Beatles, The Doors, and Hendrix complete that authentic feeling.
