has anyone read it? if so what did you think of it?

I just finished it and i really enjoyed it, it was a laugh reading about the mayhem he got up to on tour, and it was painful reading about his family problems and his problems with drugs. but there was something i didnt like about it, i cant quite put my finger on it but it was the way he talked about drugs. sometimes it seemed like he was saying "yeah drugs are the best! they're so much fun!.... but don't do them" i cant describe it.

the hardbook edition looked so cool aswell! all the artwork and the pages looked awesome. not sure if the softback edition had the same style or not.

Yes, I've read it. It was hard to put your finger on what his thoughts were on his drugs problem.
When he was clean he was quite damning about them, but you have to remember they were diaries rather than an autobiogrpahy for example (where you have the gift of "looking back") so whenever he was "on" drugs, he was obviously not too critical of them (let's face it, when you are on drugs they're brilliant, when you're off them they suck)
It was quite harrowing reading his accounts where he just sat in a closet for days on end, shooting up and holding his gun for fear of being "attacked"
A great book all the same, it's amazing that we have these figures we "idolize" but then you find yet they are just sad junkies, unhappy, resentful and bitter. I thought the same when I read the Kurt Cobains book.
And yes, I have the hardback edition and the artwork (inside as well) is really good. It looks dead hard
