Book Review and Winner of Book Giveaway!

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!

Randy Blythe: Dark Days (book review)

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!
