Recommend me a good autobiography please…
For shear out and out debauchery, this is brilliant
Its really interestingly written. The same events are described by the different members of the band, one of whom saw it through a haze of smack, another coked out of his head, the other an alchoholic, and one addicted to prescription drugs. Needless to say, their perceptions of events are rather different. Its hilarious! Apart from people dying in drug fuelled car crashesPosted 4 years agothisisnotaspoonMember
+1 for Milligan, should be compulsorary reading in schools!
Paul Carter – Don’t tell mum I work on the oil rigs, she thinks I’m a piano player in a whore house. The only book I’ve actualy wet myself laughing whilst reading. Possibly a bit low brow for STW, but very very funny.
Eric Cantona’s is a good read, and Martin Johnson.
Read Riss*, Taylor Hamiltons and Caverndish’s recently, all good too if you like the background behind why cycling is the way it is, very little bike riding in any of them (because they’re roadies, it’d be longer than the bible and contain more pain and suffering if they did).
*maybe he’s a good guy, but quite probably a douche if you look at the book factualy (left his wife and family for a yopunger model, doped, lied, doped some more, lied, eventualy came out when someone thretened to put it beyond doubt) rather than his account.Posted 4 years ago
I like reading about other people’s lives, probably cos my own is a bit boring! Loved Julian Cope’s Head On, and looking to read Richard Burton’s diaries. Not interested in cyclists, cos all they do all day is ride bikes. Writers, comedians and musicians seem to write the best ones? CheersPosted 4 years ago
