This book was a tragic portrait of a man who loved his drugs more then his music yet he continued to make beautiful music throughout his life. Chet Baker was a tragic soul who only lived for one thing and that was his high for the day. For thirty-five years, he constantly abused himself with cocaine and herion. It was amazing he did not die sooner in life. James Gavin really goes into two sides of who Chet Baker was. The musician and the junkie. From his early poster-boy years in the 1950's to the hollow faced-man that he ended up as, Gavin balances the two and goes into detail about how Baker was raised and the problems he constantly had with relationships. Through it all, Baker still emerged as a inovator of "cool" jazz and a well respected jazz artist. Today he is more popular then he ever was when he was living.
