Sinopsis:

Book by Potter Greg Robinson Red

Críticas:

"[ Backstage Vancouver ] is a charming book by authors who know this city well, and have done nothing less than a service to the Lower Mainland for their chronicle of our cultural life. There's no book like this, and it's long overdue. The pictures are absolutely a gem, and the stories are riveting and fascinating not only to Lower Mainlanders but by those outside."
- Joseph Planta, The Commentary (Top Ten Books of 2004 feature)

"For less than a round of cocktails, Backstage Vancouver delivers many of the choice stories we ink-stained wretches have been gossiping about for decades. Potter spans an entertainment arc that encompasses everything from the city's first opera house to Ben Affleck's recent encounter with local strippers. Along the way, he touches on topics that range from Errol Flynn's final curtain call at the city morgue to the shameful fact that Louis Armstrong was once refused a room at the Hotel Vancouver. Whipping so much diverse information into shape is a daunting task ... this is an admirably smooth and well researched read. ... takes a double-barrelled approach to our rich cultural history, allowing locally based treasures like Robinson, Hugh Pickett, and Dal Richards to comment on their experiences with visiting celebrities. Who can resist Red reminiscing about taking Buddy Holly to the White Spot? Or Les Wiseman, that legendary chronicler of Vancouver's punk-rock scene, remembering an appearance by Iggy Pop at the Pender Ballroom? Not me."

"A fantastic book... Rare photographs are featured from various archives and personal collections that can't be found in any other books. An absorbing read, Backstage Vancouver captures the memorabilia and nostalgia of an era, a city, and the people who were there. With past acts like The Beatles and Louis Armstrong, to present day pop stars like Bryan Adams and Nickelback, it covers the entire spectrum of legends who got their start in Vancouver or merely passed through on their way to astounding stardom. Backstage Vancouver is a joy to read."
