Defending A Devil

The author in this piece who tries to defend Albert Goldman misses the point about why his books on Elvis and John Lennon are horrendous. In addition to making things up and various mistakes (as pointed out somewhat in the article), Goldman's hatred for his subjects bleeds all over his books. It's okay to point out that Elvis and Lennon weren't saints, but the mean-spirited writing was unforgiving.
