"Like any good memoirist, Wood is shamelessly honest."—The New York Times
"Wood's wildly entertaining book is peopled with virtually every major British and American rocker since the early '60s."—Rush and Malloy, New York Daily News
"Wood is a classic classic rocker, and his story has just that kind of 'behind the music' arc."—The Associated Press
"Features candid tales about Wood's long career in rock 'n' roll...and his own drug, alcohol, and financial problems. 'It's been an adventure for me, ' Wood said."-U.P.I.
"Forthright and revealing...plenty for fans to chew on."-VNU Entertainment News Wire
In the generous and sincere tone of a speechmaker at a retirement party, Wood recounts the earning and spending of several fortunes, copious cocaine and alcohol intake, women he's loved, the great musicians and celebrities he's known and farcical scrapes with the law, drug dealers and other nefarious businessmennone of which he takes too seriously. But what could have been the saddening diary of a dissolute scoundrel finds its charm in his unabashed enthusiasms for his second wife, Jo; snooker; thoroughbreds; the television show "CSI"; and Ireland. The balance of mischief and decency seesaws comfortably until the coda…Like any good memoirist, Wood is shamelessly honest and devoted to his own irresponsibility.
