I read this because Q Magazine billed it as the best music bio ever written. They should know I guess, and I've only read a few others, Hammer of the Gods and The Dirt being the highlights. And it's great. Hellfire reads like literature. It isn't just the extraordinary life that JLL and his people created for themselves, it's the Biblical zeal with which the story is told. You don't have to be a fan of Lewis or even rock and roll to get something out of this. VG
