Sadly, there is something fundamentally missing from this book. Once again the culprit is the presentation style, with its disconnected commentaries and lack of analysis. Mullen relies so much on fuzzy memories from minor scenesters and hangers-on (many with extremely disposable observations) that the crucial insights of the band members, the guys you really want to hear from, are often missing from long stretches of the book. Mullen was one of those scenesters from the early days himself, or wished he was, and this forces a focus on the band's personal lives and the hijinks of their club days.Read more ›
Lots of different characters, and an interesting look at the history of that music scene and not entirely focused on the band itself. The primary star is Perry Farrell but you have sections devoted to Dave Navarro, Eric Avery as well as other musicians who joined the band from time to time (Flea etc.)
Great read and highly recommend! Only downside is that it is kind of dated (especially with the comeback) but it doesn't make for any less of a read

I asked Casey what she thought about this book, she said "Not much." Some interesting stories..but nothing new.Published 5 months ago by Bryan Sobaire Schroat
A good read with lots of insights into a fantastic band. I think I would have enjoyed more if it was a narrative rather than a series of quotes from Valois people and magazinesPublished 14 months ago by M C ROLLS
Not very well written, just an entire book of quotes from various people. Skip this one.Published 17 months ago by deborah
It is an oral history, so don't expect a fluid written out story. It was a fun and fast read and really gets into the destructive behavior that kept the band in turmoil.Published 19 months ago by Scuba Steve
I love reading rock and roll biographies, and along with Scar Tissue this is my favorite. A must read for Jane's fans. Read morePublished on August 15, 2014 by Hardliner Bullet
