An enjoyable read if you are interested in the personalites behind one of the best LA bands of the late 80's early 90's. Hugely influential in the transition of the underground to overground, Perry Farrell, Dave Navarro, Eric Avery and Stephen Perkins truly merged theatre, dance and amazing energy and musical talent into a crazy art explosion that still garners fans to this day. It is an oral history, so is comprised of many little vignettes from the members themselves and LA and international scensters and musicians of the time - some a couple of pages long, others mere paragraphs or sentences - recorded vocally and transcribed by Brendan Mullen.
I enjoyed it immensley as I knew many of the characters interviewed and it was great to hear the background to some of the relationships, recordings and concerts. If you are not a fan it is still interesting as a document of that period in LA and the transition of "alternative" music into being more acceptable to the mainstream.
