One thought on “The Can Book”

  1. CAN, one of the very best rock bands of the 70’s.As far as I know there isn’t any other book about Can so this is an important document featuring original research, interviews with the band, cool photos, etc. The narrative ends 30 years ago just after Rite Time but I guess Can didn’t really do much else after that right?In theory it would be nice some day to get a full-on 350 page biography but truthfully it sounds like for the most part they were just practicing 12 hours a day and playing [...]

  2. Unfortunately, a very bad book. Can deserve a much better book. It's just really badly written, broken up into short biographies of the members and a perfunctory chronological account of the years the band was in operation. It does nothing to convey the magic of that unique music. I only give it a second star because it inspired me to listen to loads of Can over the last few days.

  3. Good book covering the fantastic krautrock band Can -- too short, but nonetheless filled with interviews and intriguing facts, and hints of rare recordings I will never, ever find.

  4. Interesting facts about a great band but written in quite a cold "matter of fact" way like a reference book and far too short to give it any more than 3 stars.
