Of the group or perhaps appropriately the lack thereof prior to the arrival of Herman Ze German as well as that which has eluded them since his departure I think you can see exactly how pivotal his role was within the band However there is much here than just the ordinary self glorifying chronicle of a man's life This book is anything but that Shrewdly concealed within this autobiography is not only what can be considered the uintessential definitive history of arguably the greatest band of their era but also a masterful weaving of some of the most entertaining wit whimsy and sage wisdom ever shared within the covers of a simple book Sure to be considered a masterpiece by those who have a love of tongue in cheek irony and satire not to mention great storytelling it raises the bar for such offerings to a decidedly new l.
