A fabulous gift from Mike. Another self-destructive massive addict, a life of ex-wives and children, record label bullshit, famous and equally self-destructive friends, and pissed-off bandmates. His my way or the highway, art on his own terms approach never goes smoothly, but it somehow gets him through because people see strength despite his incredible weaknesses.
This book exhausted me, but I appreciated the insights into his iconic records. He even seems to find redemption with an ex-cult member. Incredible read.
