    “Buy the ticket, take the ride,” was a favorite slogan of Hunter S. Thompson, and it pretty much defined both his work and his life. Fear and Loathing at Rolling Stone showcases the roller-coaster of a career at the magazine that was his literary home.

    Shaun says: "Buy the ticket...this is a great compilation."
    "One of the best books on Thompson..."

    What did you love best about Fear and Loathing at Rolling Stone?

    This book is right up there with "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas" and "The Curse of Lono." It has all of Hunter's best writing and, coupled with the letters and memos back and forth between Jann and Hunter interspersed between the pieces that were being written at the time, it is a pure gem.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Fear and Loathing at Rolling Stone?

    Start to finish the book is a stone cold riot.


    Which character – as performed by Phil Gigante – was your favorite?

    Phil sounds like Hunter. I mean it really seems like Hunter talking. It's a great feel.

    (41)

    An iconic figure of the 1960s and '70s, Pattie Boyd breaks a 40-year silence in Wonderful Tonight, and tells the story of how she found herself bound to two of the most addictive, promiscuous musical geniuses of the 20th century and became the most famous muse in the history of rock and roll.

    Chris says: "Interesting, but too short"
    "Drugs cause Pattie to mixup key events..."

    What would have made Wonderful Tonight better?

    Being somewhat of a Beatle expert and having read countless books on the Beatles, I was literally appalled that Pattie got so many dates wrong.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    It was difficult to listen to all the way through but I slogged through waiting for the next erroneous statement.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The book was totally devoid of any passion that she talks about having toward the two famous men in her life.
