    Story
    (130)

    Universally acclaimed as a musical genius, Miles Davis was one of the most important and influential musicians in the world. Here, Miles speaks out about his extraordinary life. Miles: The Autobiography, like Miles himself, holds nothing back. For the first time Miles talks about his five-year silence. He speaks frankly and openly about his drug problem and how he overcame it. He condemns the racism he encountered in the music business and in American society generally. And he discusses the women in his life.

    Diane Havens says: "Dion Graham IS Miles Davis"
    "Gritty But Powerful"

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to Miles the most enjoyable?

    Information about the Jazz scene and the variety of artists Miles came in contact with througout his carreer.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The story was gritty and had many powerful messages. It explained away a lot of rumors, connected a lot of dots,revealed the many struggles, relationships and triumps that exist in the music business.


    What does Dion Graham bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The Miles "feeling" by hearing the story.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I knew there was drug and alcohol use in the jazz scene but the frequency and volume used was surprising.


    Any additional comments?

    I will be pulling my Miles music collection and will be having a marathon and tying the stories and information in the book to the various tunes. I would like to hear more autobiographies of the Jazz greats in the future.
