1.0 out of 5 stars Wake me up when you've got something interesting to say..., November 2, 2004
This review is from: Powder (Paperback)
I can't believe this book is so rubbish, I roar. I'm giving my friend Fiona a guided tour of my book shelf. I've recommended Carl Sagan's `Cosmos' and `Heavier than Heaven,' Charles Crosses' excellent Kurt Cobain bio. Now I've come to this rock novel, complete with a cover quote from Alex James of Blur. I've got quarter of the way through Fiona, and honestly... it's all panties and cocaine. All the women are either posh totty with visible panty lines or they're putting on floor shows with their own mothers! Do men buy this stuff or are they completely stupid? Emerald, says Fiona, who do you think this book is aimed at? But Fiona, like Joan Jett I love Rock and Roll, and this is a rock and roll book. Look at all the AC/DC books on my shelves. What, the ones next to `Modern Man in Search of a Soul' and `A History of Britain,' Fiona asks.

We're both laughing now.
