it was ok

The first 150 pages are pretty boring, unless you grew up in england in the 50s. the rest of the book was entertaining at times, but much of it seemed like a bunch of name dropping followed by his assessment of these formerly famous people who i didn't know. also, the man is not very apologetic for anything he ever did, which i guess matches his persona, but i wasn't sure whether this made me like him or dislike him. the aura of the drug addled, partying rock star loses some of its shine when you are so up close to it. in the end, i just wasn't very impressed w/ him as a person. thankfully, i don't need my musicians to be great people, but i think i'll stick to his music rather than his writing.
