Out of all the books I’ve read, this is the one I can relate to the most. Corey Taylor does not hold back and has a lot to say about what is wrong with this society we live in today.
Taylor has plenty of super hilarious stories, which will having you literally laughing out loud. From leaving a guy on the street because he puked and shit his pants, to going to these so called hollywood parties, to just ripping Justin Bierber to shits, to what is wrong with some this newer generation of kids.
“The Neck” as so people call him, among his many other nicknames doesnt only share with us what makes him angry, Taylor also has some great advice for when you are traveling, what to and not to do when you’re at the airport. There are so many things he talks about that is hard to say a lot of them without giving his stories away.
This is honestly the funniest book I’ve read in a long, long time. And it also one I will be referring back to in the future. Seriously, go get yourself a copy of CT’s latest book, you wont regret it.
Thanks a lot to Da Capo Press for providing me with a copy of this book. Check out Their Website for some great books.

This week i bring you George Clinton’s memoir. First of all, i think you have to be a fan of Clinton and funk music in general to understand this memoir. Clinton does an incredible job describing a lot of his catalogue in detail. It was really enjoyable to go back in time and see what he was thinking when he was writing and coming up with those records from the 60s, 70s, and 80s.
I think we all know how Clinton struggled with drugs throughout his career and he is very blunt when talking about it. He describes going on many rides with Sly to score drugs, how they wrote music together, and the different drugs they took.
You get a sense of somewhat honesty, but with such a long career he couldve wrote a book of 500+ pages. Even though this book is not as long as it couldve been, Clinton still did an awesome job in putting his life to paper. Maybe we’ll see another book in the future. The way Clinton talks it doesnt look like he will stop anytime soon!
And now what you all are really here for (lol)

What a riveting story by one of the best heavy metal singers ever (in my opinion). But this not only the story about Randy’s prison time, but an inspirational book to any alcoholic or drug addict out there.
Randy has always had a unique way of expressing himself, both through his music and the way he does interviews. He is a man of his word and he kept it by going back to the Czech Republic even though he was advised by many people not to go. That right there alone shows what a great standup person he is.
In this memoir, Randy of course talks about his 37 days in prison (i think we all knew he would eventually write a book about that, just not this soon). The horrible living conditions, the once every few days showers, and showering with inmates who had tuberculosis and venereal diseases. He also talks about his annoying cell mate and some of the shady characters that he came across during rec time.
I think there is also some great advice for anyone who is looking to get sober or just make a better living period. There are a couple of great chapter that anyone (wether you like Randy or LoG) could benefit from.
If you would like an inspirational read then look no further. Randy has an exceptiomal writing style that is easy to follow and he doesnt bullshit around. He tells it like he sees it!
Thank you Da Capo Press for the copy of this book. You guys are always great, and keep up the awesome job on publishing great books!

I was a bit skeptical when i first bought this boom because it is co written with David Ritz, and last time i picked up a book co written with him, it was horrible. But this one was a different story.
What an awesome story this was. Waaaay better than Tyler’s book. Joe Perry really spills all the beans on this one. How Tyler was running behind the band’s back to audition for Led Zeppelin and American Idol. But this book is not just about the dirty little secrets, it is more than that. Is about the rise and fall of a great guitar player and man. Full with stories about his growing up in the lake and bonding with nature.
Joe Perry really makes you feel like youre sitting with him having a conversation in his back porch. His attention for detail is incredible and thats why when you read this book you can picture everything he is sharing with you.
As bonus if you are a guitar player (like myself) you will really appreciate how he describes his recording process of albums and all the effects and guitars that went into making them. And at the very end of the boom theres a whole section with a lot of pictures about guitars and gear he used and uses.
Do not pass the oportunity to read this awesome autobiography filled with over 100 pictures.

Second book Ive read from Ozzy. The first one was his autobiography “Iam Ozzy”. This however is not an autobiography per say, however he does includes some stuff about his family.
This book is based on a column he has on Rolling Stone where people would submit their questions and Ozzy would answer them. And it turned into an awesomely funny book. I mean some of the questions these people submited range from “How to cure a hangover?” To “How to cure my herpes?” Or even “how many drugs should i take?” And the answers from Ozzy are just spectacular!! It had some moments where i just had to stop reading for a min and laugh it off.
Ozzy clearly says that the best way to be sure is to go see your doctor, and get it checked out as soon as possible. Also even though some of the things he does may work for him, obviously doesnt mean it will work for you.
Do not get into this book if you’re going to take it seriously because it obviously isnt. Be ready to have some good laughs from the get go though!!

Today i bring you my review of Stephen Pearcy’s autobiography. Lead singer of Mickey Ratt, M Ratt, and finally just Ratt.
Well, most of you guys know Ratt from 80s fame. Starting up in the sunset strip in Los Angeles, Ratt became famous very quick and grew big quick with their hit single Round and Round. But this is much more than the story of Ratt.
This is the story of Steohen Pearcy, and while a lot of it has to do with his band, is much more than that. Is the story of his heroin use, becoming a father, and finally kicking drugs for good (recently). Of course theres your stories about groupies and all the backstage debauchery that was going on back in those days, and that is all pretty much standard for those bands.
Stephen seems like an awesome person and you get the feel that he is just telling you the way it was in a veey raw, unapologetic way. I gotta say, some of his stories had me cracking up!!! And with all the happy moments, there also come sad ones, which was the case when Robbin Crosby died. That was Stephen’s brother and you can see how Robbin’s death changed him.
Anyways, awesome and quick book that you cant pass up. 80s stories never get old, and the pictures in this book are pretty awesome too!

Wow, what an awesome book by Idol. Finally we get to hear his story from himself.
What an interesting life hes had. From growing up in the UK and US and traveling and moving around with his family. He definately made the best out of his situations.
He writes about the typical rock n roll, drugs, and groupies life, and that pretty much expected from musicians from the 80s era. But theres also the side of him that seems very sweet and genuine towards his children. There are many stories about Gen X and of course making it big as a solo artist. What i enjoyed the most was getting to hear how he came up with Rebel Yell and White Wedding and Cradle of Love, and of course his other hits. Is amazing how a lot of musicians their biggest hits were written in a very short amount of time.
When you read this book it feels like you are sitting in an afternoon having a couple of beers with Billy Idol and he is telling you his story, feels very intimate and you can paint a picture in your head.
The one thing a didnt like is there is a gap of a few years that he didnt talk about, and it could be understanding since he didnt have anything really going on in his musical career at the moment. Other than that is a great book and im glad i didnt wait any longer to read it.
