Another thing that was just tedious was their approach to drugs and alcohol. They seem to think they hadn't sunk to the gutter because they didn't do heroin, but gleefully boast about doing acid, cocaine, LSD, and just about any other drug on the planet. They seem so proud of it. This is in addition to being endlessly drunk.Read more ›
I learned plenty from things I must have missed reading up on since first stumbling upon the Arabian Knights video around 1981, up to and including their sad break up in 1995...Who knew that behind Robert Smith's back he was unaffectionately referred to as "Fat Bob," or that PEEPSHOW was fueled most specifically by cocaine, that FEAST was hammered out in two weeks, that Siouxsie ruled the band with an iron fist (well, you HAD to know that). I still worship the music, but now I appreciate the humans who created it, whiny and childish as they seemed at times.
It's a great read, I love Siouxsie's occasional foul mouth and the fact that she had the audacity to have been photographed for the cover of the book in a Burberry blouse. And you'll have fun at the end of the book highlighting all the gigs you actually saw and horrified at how many you allowed yourself to miss. (Discography and extensive index included)

This book has been around the world with me, and I read it about once per year. I like non-fiction, and it is possibly my favorite book. Read morePublished on October 23, 2013 by Napoleon
While I found this interesting since I am a fan of the band, I can't imagine it being very interesting at all to anyone who isn't. I found it to be a bit routine and clinical.Published on March 21, 2013 by lfoley
This is a great book because it has all the viewpoints of all the players in the band for a span of about 25 years. Read morePublished on March 9, 2008 by C. Juliet
The author of this bio does a great thing. He shuts his f#@king mouth and lets the band do the talking. The book really gives an insight into the band that I never had. Read morePublished on October 7, 2007 by badkitteh
