"I Am Still The Greatest Says Johnny Angelo" is Nik Cohn's hymn to rock as myth, in all its crazed, absurd, and glorious excess. Partly based on the legendary rocker, PJ Proby, Johnny Angelo is the pop star to end all pop stars--narcissistic, mock-heroic, and massively destructive. The novel follows his progress from warped infancy to final messianic explosion. It is a top read, which David Bowie once claimed inspired Ziggy Stardust.
