Tosches' book is a work of art.

The book is undeniably a feat — turning a sordid, tormented life into a rousing piece of poetic expressionism.

The best rock 'n' roll biography ever written....There is a novelistic intensity to this story of scandal, tragedy, triumph and love....Riveting.

Quite simply the best rock and roll biography ever written.
