It's got action, adventure, danger, hard rock and heavy metal (mostly hard rock), romance, dogs, lawn care. This book has it all.

When I got to the lawn care section, why did my mind suddenly change his voice to that of Hank Hill?

I hear it more as a cross between Felix Unger and Carl Spackler.

Read it, loved it! I just had no idea going in that it was a fantasy novel.

Is it? Amazon has it classified in their Top 100 Hot New Releases as "Romantic Action and Adventure." Which is fine by me -- they could put it in "Live Bait and Small Engine Repair" as long as it sells.

Did you like the music stuff interpolated throughout -- overt and covert?

The protagonist is somewhat humble, uses reason for motivation, is very dependable, and doesn't sleep with women at every opportunity. And yet, he is portrayed as a drummer. Obviously it's a fantasy novel.

Loved the music references!

If it makes anyone feel better, the protagonist for my next novel is named Tom Hamilton. And he's a bass player.
