Actually (despite the unfortunate series title) the Rough Guides are
really rather good (and go well-beyond travel).

The Rough Guide to Opera is one of my particular favourites.

There are problems with the Rough Guide to Rock ...

Where is Barry Blue today?

(Not in the index, baby blue.)

Mind you, ages ago, after raising this question with Al Spicer, I
managed to answer it myself.

And the answer is frankly appalling -- he's COE of a music company that
mostly does background music for Coca Cola adverts.

Shows you what happens if you dance too late on a Saturday Night, and
live beyond forty.

(Sorry everyone, this is wildly off-topic, but as the Rough Guides came
up ...)
