it was amazing

Art Pepper was a great jazz musician. This book unflinchingly tells the stories from his life as a junkie and musician, living the wild life in California decades before Guns & Roses found a way to market that kind of rebellion to the public at large. He walked the line, served hard jail time, made great music.

This is a wild and crazy ride, one of the all-time great music biographies.
