Printed books are all well and good, but, let's face it, it's a whole lot easier to let somebody else do the reading. P.D.Q. Bach was probably the most passive composer who ever allegedly lived, so the less effort you put into learning about him, the more you carry on his ideals. Download and start listening now!

    " With such well-known works as "Oedipus Tex" and "Fanfare for the Common Cold", is it any wonder that PDQ Bach reigns as one of the greatest composers of all time? "

    " If you've never heard of P.D.Q. Bach, the least of J.S. Bach's twenty-odd children, you probably have no business reading this. But if you have, it's a funny little romp through the life of one of the worst composers in history. "

    " Absolutely hilarious. Not for those without musical knowledge, but absolutely hilarious. Did I mention how hilarious it was? "

    " If you love classical music, if you studied classical music, you have to listen to Peter Schiclele's "P.D.Q. Bach" parodies. Catch him live, if you can, but there are plenty of recordings if you can't. This book is just icing on the already sumptuous cake. "
