User Review  - John somers - Goodreads

Poor book. Struggled to get through it. Far too much discussion of the bands musical influences and too little info on their struggles with drug addiction and their personal lives. Reads like most of it could have been written by someone whos read a lot about the band but never actually met them. Read full review
