A book about sex, drugs, and rock 'n roll (approximate ratio: 20/70/10). I like some of Marilyn Manson's music and Brian Warner is from my hometown (Canton, Ohio), so I thought this would be an interesting read.

I once saw an interview with him and he came off as surprisingly intelligent and I've often defended him on the rare occasions that his name has come up. After this, though, I think I'm going to rethink things. He does have some interesting thoughts on society, religion, hypocrisy, etc., but this book is almost entirely about taking drugs and the horribly destructive and abusive he and his friends did while high. I like a crazy backstage party story like the next guy, but most of this was downright nauseating.

I suppose I can keep on liking the music and not the person.
