Format: Paperback
loved this book. A question posed regarding Kim Fowley is always, "Is he a madman or a genius," and he's neither. Just a very smart, shrewd, capable man who survived a horrendous childhood; polio, foster homes, bad parents, to join the Army and knock-around the music industry to develop a blunt, fearless, brutally honest personality. Of course, this it the first book that promises to be a 3 book/volume series, so maybe his madman/genius status will be more apparent in the future books I will most definitely read. 5 Solid Stars are given because I'm so excited to read the next two volumes. As with most showbiz memoirs, you get interesting behind-the-scenes observations and profiles. Jimi Hendrix was a sweetheart and sci-fi geek, always carrying a novel or two on his person. Jan and Dean were a couple of homophobic, racist bullies. However, when reading memoir, you are reading the writer's version of events and the writer's opinions even if the events didn't exactly go down the way he says they did and even if the writer doesn't totally know what he's talking about. At one point, Kim Fowley describes a person he knew as a character from a Eugene O'Neill novel. Eugene O'Neill wrote plays not novels. Kim Fowley wants to take credit for discovering The Mammas and Pappas but admits that everybody there contests his telling of the events. Grain of salt taken, the book has great quotes to live by, most being too blunt and foul-mouth to reproduce her. However, I like this one. "One, be careful what you say around insensitive people. And two, welcome to the music business." You can amend that line for any business. Madman, genius or not, he is my type of guy. Keep these books coming.

This is the worst book ever written. His poetry is terrible, his inability to remember facts notable and his basic writing pretentious and over blown. It really made me dislike an already hard to like person. i want my 18 dollars back what a rip off. Kim Fowley is also possibly the worst poet ever to commit prose to paper. What a joke.

Wishing I had read it prior to his death and perhaps contacted him somehow. Great story but it does come across a bit much at times. It is believable . I'm going after the sequels next.

Simply the best way to see the 60s music business from the inside, and develop your own iconoclastic philosophy about it and life itself. Do you want to be a soldier, making art for the masses? Get inside this outrageously fine mind, starting here.
