it was amazing
bookshelves: music

Early in the book Shayne Carter says "I sometimes forget that I'm a rock star...When I do what I can do, anyone with half a brain can see it." This is absolutely true. Only a rock star could tell their story this way.

Dead People I Have Known is a terrific read. An interesting perspective on the Dunedin/Flying Nun scene; a great account of the tribulations of trying to stay true to yourself while dealing with the expectations that come with record deals and being called "the greatest guitar band in the world"; and a genuine and sometimes infuriating tale of a rock star living in the world with the rest of us squares.
