"Scott Weiland was quite possibly the last great rock and roll frontman, and his death crushed the rock community. This book was a great opportunity for people who knew Scott and loved his music to remember him and pay tribute." --Brett Buchanan, Alternative Nation site
"It's hard to lose a great talent like Scott Weiland, but we will always have his music and our memories! Greg Prato has put together a great collection of down to earth memories from Scott's friends and colleagues. Stay away from the internet rumors and check out the real thing in this book!" --Terry Turen, Stone & Double T (WXRX)
"Fans most likely will learn something new - some little tidbit from behind the scenes that they had never heard before, as many of those interviewed don't seem to have shared their stories on the topic of Scott Weiland previously. This book is definitely something to pick up and put on your reading list." --Screamer Magazine
"This is a must-read book for anyone interested in Weiland, STP, or Velvet Revolver. Prato has a unique way of connecting the dots in this oral history narrative, and you would be well-advised to check this one out." --Steve Rosen, CurledUp site

Again, Greg Prato comes through with creating an honest and poignant account. He seems to go into every project with the enthusiasm of a superfan, and yet with his mind open enough to create a book free from bias or trumpeting his view...Another ringer here!
I don’t have any idea what the reviewers who left negative comments here are talking about...I think ‘Memories of a Rock Star’ is the perfect companion read to Scott’s autobiography, ‘Not Dead & Not for Sale.’ I learned a lot and a few things I was unsure of were confirmed or cleared up, such as interviews with the directors of STP’s classic videos recalling what was going on behind the scenes at the shoots and how they came up with some of the ideas for scenes, producer Chris Goss remembering how Scott was both talented yet unpredictable to work with, Bob Forest discussing Scott’s attempts at sobriety, etc. I have read a few of Prato’s other books (‘Grunge is Dead,’ ‘Meet the Meat Puppets,’ and his book about Shannon Hoon, ‘A Devil on one Shoulder’), and ‘Rock Star’ is set up in the same manner, as an oral history, which is easy to follow and understand. Read it and long live Scott Weiland!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
