    This is a collection of excerpts from other books, written in the first person. The author list includes Marilyn Manson, Johnny Cash, Slash, Gregg Allman, Dee Dee Ramone, Lemmy, and many more. It’s tales of their drinking to excess, taking too many drugs, getting obnoxious (to roadies, managers, other band members, fans and others), puking on everything, having sex with everyone, getting clean and then going back and doing it all over again.

It’s tales of their drinking to excess, taking too many drugs, getting obnoxious (to roadies, managers, other band members, fans and others), puking on everything, having sex with everyone, getting clean and then going back and doing it all over again. Some of the writers have an interesting style. Some don’t. Some have humor. Most don’t. Some learned from what they did. Some didn’t. I found the first part of the book fairly interesting, but as I went on, it was just more of the same things. How many times can the story of looking frantically for drugs before withdrawal sets in be interesting? Sadly, not this many times. Frankly, I got bored with it somewhere around the middle. Three stars out of five.

    Ugh, don't bother. Just a collection of (poorly transcribed) excerpts from a slim selection of rocker bios. Ugh, don't bother. Just a collection of (poorly transcribed) excerpts from a slim selection of rocker bios.
