Fave serial snuffer: late 50's punk and dustman Charlie Starkweather. Inspired two fiims, the respected BADLANDS (w/Charlie Sheen and Sissy Spaceck ...

Re: Favourite Rock books.

A splendid feelbad holiday gift for yer mum: AND I DON'T WANT TO LIVE THIS LIFE by the mother of human trainwreck, Nancy Spungeon, infamous for sinking her claws into wastecase Sid Vicious.

Re: Favourite Rock books.

Agree on UP TIGHT. The interview material is skilfully collated enough that you quickly stop checking to see who was attributed to each quote. One of the collaborators, Warhol associate Victor Bockris, also aided John Cale in his autobio WHAT'S WELSH FOR ZEN? Cale can often be a self-pitying moper, ...

Seal

Just rec'd a come-on from Amazon.co.uk: "We've noticed that customers who have purchased or rated music by the Stranglers have also purchased HITS (standard version) by Seal. For this reason...

Re: Who is making you laugh at the moment?
