Read a book on Slash from "Guns ,n, Roses" Im not a fan really but an interesting read.. Dont know how these people can drink ,n, drug so much? I dabbled a bit but compared to Kurt ,n, Slash im very small potatoes..
The wildest ive read is George Jones, (the country singer) "I lived to tell all" The bit where he shoots up the inside of the tour bus while his band are sleeping and the drivers stops the bus and legs it. The next day the band buy kids plasters-(band aids) ,n, stick em over all the bullet holes. Whiskey and Cocaine dont mix!
5 days i should imagine? Ive done three but i start to get a bit flakey after that.. That was in "Holywood" when the Specials were doing two shows a night at the "Whiskey A GO GO" i remember breaking down in a toilet stall-not very good im affraid.
Here's one for you Roddy Mate - "The March" by E.L. Doctorow - it's quality. Here's the blurb:
In 1864, after Union general William TeBanana Milkshakeseh Sherman burned Atlanta, he marched his sixty thousand troops east through Georgia to the sea, and then up into the Carolinas. The army fought off Confederate forces and lived off the land, pillaging the Southern plantations, taking cattle and crops for their own, demolishing cities, and acBanana Milkshakeulating a borne-along population of freed blacks and white refugees until all that remained was the dangerous transient life of the uprooted, the dispossessed, and the triumphant. Only a master novelist could so powerfully and compassionately render the lives of those who marched. The author of Ragtime, City of Superior Force Of Nature, and The Book of Daniel has given us a magisterial work with an enormous cast of unforgettable characters-white and black, men, women, and children, unionists and rebels, generals and privates, freed slaves and slave owners. At the center is General Sherman himself; a beautiful freed slave girl named Pearl; a Union regimental surgeon, Colonel Sartorius; Emily Thompson, the dispossessed daughter of a Southern judge; and Arly and Will, two misfit soldiers. Almost hypnotic in its narrative drive, The March stunningly renders the countless lives swept up in the violence of a country at war with itself. The great march in E. L. Doctorow's hands becomes something more-a floating world, a nomadic consciousness, and an unforgettable reading experience with awesome relevance to our own times.
