I see Mary has come and rated this book a 1-star. Who else would do that to a book that's not even out yet? Can't wait for this. Fantastic and intriguing musician Scott

An amazing let down!

I'm a freaking huge Scott Weiland fan. For many years I have been fascinated by his music, and even more by his live performances. He's such an energetic, creative, passionate performer when he's in front of a crowd doing his thing.

I'm a freaking huge Scott Weiland fan. For many years I have been fascinated by his music, and even more by his live performances. He's such an energetic, creative, passionate performer when he's in front of a crowd doing his thing.

I was looking forward to getting my hands on this book ever since hearing Scott would be writing this years ago. It took years for me to get my hands on it, and then 2.5 hours to read the whole thing cover to cover. It usually takes me several days to get through a book with almost 300 pages. This book has tons of filler space in it. Everything from large over sized lyrics stretched across the page to solid black and white pages with nothing...

Any serious Scott Weiland, STP, Velvet Revolver fan will know 80% of the information Scott shares in this book. I get the impression Scott started "holding back" when it came to actually writing this book. He does give you some insight to his personal battles, but then as soon as he tells you something, the sentence seems to stop instantly, then it's a new chapter.

There is very little personal insight to the behind the scenes workings of STP and VR. The little tid bits shared about the bands has been on the internet for years by now.

(Spoiler Alert) There's a brief sentence mentioning about the backstage drama with Velvet Revolver. He says something like "Slash's wife had started placing herself in the band's meetings." That's it. He doesn't even share any examples of what happened in any of the meetings. There could have been a whole chapter of page after page writing just about those meetings...

It just seemed like it jumped around a lot, and kinda felt rushed as I got to the stuff I really wanted to hear about the behind the scenes life of the bands.
