New York's All Right...

"Can Any Literati Published by a Commercial New York Mainstream Publisher Truly Rock Out?"

(They're discussing The Great American Rock and Roll Novel over at Gallycat.)

Your novel doesn't apply. Evidence:

"most rock novels tend to rely on archetypal stock characters like "the good looking lead singer, the dumb drummer, the tall bass player, the drugged out guitarist; sometimes they'll throw in a woman on bass if it's an alt rock band."

Your characters are still stereotypical but in a more-pleasing less-machismo way. Long live the loser, my kind of hero.

Richard Hell's a real rock star and you're not?
