Not read it yet, but heard from a reliable source that the memoirs of Andrew Matheson (sic) from glam scuzz also-rans, The Hollywood Brats, is hilarious and apparently described as the "Withnail & I" of rock memoirs.


This is exactly the book I was thinking of when I saw this thread, but couldn't muster the wherewithal to write a post. Highly recommended. Aside from all the Anvil-like hilarious tales of failed bids to stardom, the guy really has a point when he talks about inventing punk. Out of all the proto-punk cuts I've heard, Sick On You, from 1973, most accurately presages the reality of what punk sounded like.
