        Started reading it Thursday. Bought it from a small bookstore near the theater where Henry Rollins was showing, just before I got in line for his performance.

        He had a tough childhood......forced to live with his mentally unstable granny for awhile.....ugh.....

        Stopped reading at the point where they changed their band name to The Who, as I need to finish the bio I am reading of Vincent Price first.

            Christ. I would love to have a signed copy. Hmmm....just realized....perhaps he will sell them at the venue in December.....

            Finished it last night.

            He was married for many decades, and has 3 children from his wife...the youngest who is a son, now 25 years old.
            Had his share of adventures, but for the most part was a workaholic. Skipped over a lot of stuff, but if you want more details you can read the excellent bio of Keith Moon just called "Moon".

            It is looking like I might actually get to see the Half-Who in December when they come here to Gnashville. I want to see Pete play just once in my life.

              Nice dude. I've seen him 3 times with Roger and they were all well worth it. Hope you get to go.

                        Krusty must have been fiddled with by Uncle Ernie cos she hates Pete and Jimmy Page, such passionate hatred too. As if she knows the truth first hand. Dip shit. Bet ya any money Dave has fucked underage bitches, as have most of the rockers out there. Kip Winger, you naughty boy. "But she was only 17!" Not that it makes it all ok, but...

                          But it's all relevant. If you fuck 15-year olds you aren't called a child molester since it's legal from 15.
                          Some things are just formalities.

                            Sorry - but if you're a grown man and you're fucking a 15 year old you're a child molester. I don't care what the law is in one particular country - it's still wrong.

                              It's stupid really, it's all relative. So she's 17 and 364 days and it's wrong (or insert whatever age for whatever country you're in) but one day later and it's ok. I'm not endorsing it but that's stupid. Get off the high horse. There's women I know over 30 who are fucking 10 years old in the mind.
