really liked it
Read from May 29 to June 26, 2011

This was a great insight into a legend. Hearing about his confliction with so many things. Raw yet wanting. Amazing that while on top of the world could be so lonely. Oddly, I this was an artist of my generation, but because they were killing the rock and roll I loved, I never was a huge fan. I do readily admit that they changed the face of music during their time. I never cared for Courtney Love, but this showed me a side of her that the media never has. A side that seemed to be the one more in control than out of control. Am interested to see if France Bean does anything artistically of significance in her life time. If you like music or Nirvana this is a must read.
