    1. For a told-to memoir of the drug-addled days of a rock-n-roll drummer and his p.a this book is surprisingly well-told and often hilarious. The scribes kept the author's cockney voice, which is a part of what makes it work so well (there's even a glossary in the back of the book as an added bonus--which is a bit like A Clockwork Orange, come to think of it). I read this in high school (I was and am a huge Who fan), picked it up recently to peruse, and was amazed at how engaging I still found it. [...]


    2. The disjointed, out-of-sequence, alcohol-fogged memoir of Keith Moon's handler, who was expected to stay one step ahead of his employer's hijinks, keep him out of trouble and apparently match him drink for drink for ten solid years. This book got me all brushed up on my Cockney rhyming slang and reminded me, over and over, to be careful what I wish for. A book full of unbelievable memories, hilarity, regrets, incredible success and grinding failures. If you ever wondered how being a rock star sh [...]


    3. A wild romp through a rock & roll life. Nonstop mischief, lots of televisions destroyed, tasteless pranks, brandy & ginger ale. My kind of guy!


    4. Essential background on the insanity of one of the best drummers who ever lived (and definitely one of the craziest people who ever lived as well).


    5. This book rocks.Love the glossary at the end.And seriously the more I think about it the more corellations to "A Clockwork Orange" I come up with


    6. More than anything else, this book is about an idea. I came into it expecting (and having heard about) factual inaccuracies and oversimplification, but quickly you come to understand none of that matters. Keith's life is best represented by an understanding of him as a person, and this book helps provide that. Plus, Dougal's cockney is amazing to read.


    7. Well, it certainly did take me a while to read this book.I'd been interested in reading this book for many, many years. Originally this book was released around 1980, and only went through a single printing if I'm not mistaken. Being how it was around '05 or '06 that I first heard of this book it was already long out of print, copies of it for sale were startlingly rare, and it was a lucky day when you could find a copy for sale for $80. On an unlucky day it could go up to $300 easy. The ebook t [...]


    8. Who better to tell tales of Keith Moon's insanity than one of the people who knew him best; his driver/roadie/keeper Dougal Butler (the one forever immortalized in John Entwistle's classic song "Cell Number Seven")? Regaling us with stories that leave one (or, at least, this reader) frequently breathless with laughter, Dougal gives us a unique perspective on one of the most notorious, difficult-to-understand, misunderstood rock musicians. Sparing no details and not bothering to try to airbrush M [...]


    9. I bought this book back in the late '70s. Every time I tried to read it I was put off by the present tense writing style Butler uses. I finally pulled it back off the shelf trudged through a couple of chapters and have enjoyed the book after getting past Butler's writing style. In this case I believe the editors did him a disservice in the way they approved this style of writing, if a co-author with writing experience had been utilized, Dougal's stories would have reached a much wider audience. [...]


    10. Hard going. Written with liberal amounts of slang and with little regard to reader sensitivity.What might be called a warts and all account of the Rock stars wild, sad life. But not a book I particularly enjoyed.







    11. An amusing book on my all time favorite drummer (my lost friend Golden Elvis was like a Moon reincarnation). The Moon glossary elevated this up a full notch.
