The drugsPacked with incredible stories this frank and vivid memoir describes the mad life of a rock star the dynamics of the band the creativity and the self destruction the sex and the drugs but also the rock 'n roll his obsession with music shines off the page as he writes about his influences and his encounters from Dylan to New Order from Paul Weller to Oasi. Tim Burgess the lead singer and songwriter of the great MadchesterBaggy survivors The Charlatans has written a disappointing memoir Fair enough Burgess himself admits that he has written the book like a chat in the pub but I would have still liked to have gotten a bit information about how the Madchester Baggy scene looked like from an insiders point of view Was is just a happy accident or was there something a bit planned behind itAnother interesting thing would have been to learn about a how the download revolution really affected bands like the Charlatans or artists like Burgess Burgess touches upon the subject when he briefly mentions that the Charlatans was the first major band to allow it s new album to be downloaded completely free but should have spend much time explaining the reasons for it and it s implications for their subseuent career Was it a wise move or notUnfortunately Burgess urge to tell about his drug and alcohol use seems to have been the main motivation behind these memoirs But you need to be a real addictheavy user to write an interesting book about drugs subject to surviving to tell the tale of course William Burroughs Thomas De uincey Aleister Crowley Ageyev and Jim Carroll are writers that have managed to do that Recreational use that goes on occasional overdrive is not interesting read to outsiders at all and Burgess book proves that At the end of the day Burgess is just too nice and decent a fellow to have plunged into real drug abuse and debauchery Burgess is no Sebastian Horsley and for him that is a really good thing but it makes a boring and sometimes embarrassing readBurgess story would have made a really good and amusing long feature in Mojo or Uncut but as a 250 page book it is not worth reading

I read very few biographies In fact I read very little non fiction full stop But this book I felt compelled to read having been a committed Charlatans fan since the early 90s They still remain one of my favourite bands to see liveThe book itself was an easy read the title very apt as it was just like listening to Tim Burgess tell stories I docked a star as I thought the last few chapters were a bit rushed and it did jump around somewhat But overall was uite eye opening regarding how deep Tim fell into the drug fuelled life style I was blissfully unaware of this all the times I saw him on stage Oh so glad he pulled himself back from the brink Here s to many years of great albums and Brixton Academy gigs

    Tim Burgess is clearly bonkers These loose limbed ramblings about his shambolic rocking and rolling are as close to full on stream of consciousness hokum as anything Joyce or Ms Woolf published Plus neither Ulysses nor To The Lighthouse include a page long digression on the logistics of rectal ingestion of class A drugs So that's nice It may
