... for a true artist.
being a fan of Eels from the beginning this book truly is a revelation about this band's history. the life of E has been extraordinary all along the way, that he is still around is a miracle.
my respect for this man is still growing after reading his autobiography: E's filosophy about life and music in particular is one you can easily admire: keep re-inventing yourself and what you're doing, follow your instinct about what is important and never give in to others about what's essential concerning your own respectability.
a must read for fans of Eels.

In life It's amazing how some people just manage to carry on. I mean we've all had bad days, maybe a string of them, but with E those bad days must feel like a lifetimes worth.
Things The Grandchildren Should Know is a touching insight into the emotional life and career of Eels creator and front-man E. A man brought up in an insecure family, from the other side of town, with little going for him except for his love of music. A man that then saw his family lost to cancer, drugs, suicide, and the 9-11 attacks. But astonishingly manages to pull himself back from his grim realities through writing the most beautiful but frank music which he later uses as an outlet for his grief, his memorials and his rare joys.
As if that's not bad enough, he struggles with relationships and break ups too (as you will discover with his latest record End Times.)
This book is a truly wonderful gateway into his losses, heartaches and his rise to a singer/songwriter/musician that Is unquestionably equal to that of Lennon, Cobain and Dylon. E bears his heart and soul to us all, reveals his fears, embarrassments, and how he got to be who he is today.
Believe me, after reading this you won't ever complain about missing that bus or having a bad day in the office again!

 one of the best bios ive ever read
