Stephen Pearcy was a scrawny, horny, thrill-seeking teenager with an electric guitar who had graduated from backyard parties in San Diego to half-empty dives in Los Angeles before he and his band broke through at Whiskey a Go Go. Cranking out metal just as metal got hot, Ratt was the perfect band at the perfect time, and their hit single "Round and Round" became a top-selling anthem.
This is one of the best rock autobiographies ever written! It is very well written and very entertaining. At times I just burst out laughing. It also has some real low points caused by the problems of addiction. Definitely get this one.
It sounds like this book is an unedited audio recording. There was alot of repetition and double takes and repeated sentences and paragraphs. It needs to go back to the editor for correction and have the audio fixed.
Great. I really enjoyed this book. It is well written and has great narration. It makes more sense if have seen the Jackie Brown movie.
From the days of the Mayflower and the Virginia Company, America has been a place for people to dream, invent, build, tinker, and bet the farm in pursuit of a better life. Americana takes us on a 400-year journey of this spirit of innovation and ambition through a series of Next Big Things - the inventions, techniques, and industries that drove American history forward: from the telegraph, the railroad, guns, radio, and banking, to flight, suburbia, and sneakers, culminating with the Internet and mobile technology at the turn of the 21st century.
This book is a very comprehensive overview of the history of American capitalism. I had never heard of Bhu Srinivasan before, but this book is very well written. I also love the narration by Scott Brick. This book is like a companion piece to Atlas Shrugged which Scott Brick also narrated.
It would be great if this book can provide some hope for the keepers of the capitalist's dream.
Now, for the first time ever, you can discover the essence of an acclaimed author, psychologist, philosopher, and living legend, Wayne Dyer. Vast in its scope, this complete library brings you the very best of Wayne Dyer... offering a comprehensive cross-section of his incredible 25-year career.
A compilation of his audio tapes. I loved it. Listen to a little bit every day.
Van Halen's rise in the 1980s was one of the most thrilling the music world had ever seen - their mythos an epic party, a sweaty, sexy, never-ending rock extravaganza. During this unparalleled run of success, debauchery, and drama, no one was closer to the band than Noel Monk. Throughout Van Halen's meteoric rise and abrupt halt, this confidant, fixer, friend, and promoter saw it all and lived to tell. Now, for the first time, he shares the most outrageous escapades.
A good solid book from the manager from the Roth era. It fills the gap from the biography Van Halen Rising and Red by Sammy Hagar so we now have three books covering 1973 to 2004.
Ben Greenman, New York Times best-selling author, contributing writer to The New Yorker, and owner of thousands of recordings of Prince and Prince-related songs, knows intimately that there has never been a rock star as vibrant, mercurial, willfully contrary, experimental, or prolific as Prince. Uniting a diverse audience while remaining singularly himself, Prince was a tireless artist, a musical virtuoso and chameleon, and a pop-culture prophet.
This book is very well written by an author who has a very detailed understanding of Prince's work.

This book provides some excellent insights into some of the more high profile cases that have been prominent in the media. Justice isn't always served.
This is a very focused book on the subject of manifesting miracles in your life. The suspension of disbelief is something I got a lot out of. I would describe this book as life changing.
Now a major ITV drama series, Mr Selfridge is a tale of Edwardian excess and the rise and fall of maverick retailer Harry Gordon Selfridge. In 1909 London's first dedicated department store opened in a huge blaze of publicity. Zola called Selfridges a 'great cathedral of shopping', and its high priest was Harry Gordon Selfridge, father of modern retailing, philanderer, gambler, dandy and showman.
I am interested in the TV series so this book provided excellent further information. The TV series is very close to the book and the characters as described in this here. It is very well researched and written. The narration is good also.
