I’ve read many music biographies and autobiographies - I love the great ones. This book, though, is more than the others. It gives such a cultural snap shot of NYC before it became a mall, and the heyday of the LA music scene. I lived through them both, and this rekindled memories for me. These guys had fun - there’s no overglorification of the negative pieces of their career arc either. They’re funny writers too, not that this fact would be surprising to anyone who has heard their music. Layout, art direction and photos are great. Guest writers spot on. This book sets a high, perhaps unreachable, bar for the music autobiography.
