Wow, the insight The Beast shares on himself is nothing short of shameful! While theres some great RnR stories in here, the book also brings the beckoning question "Does A fool Ever Learn?"
The book answers the age old question, "What was life like after being in one of the great bands ever?"
I personally feel the Iron Maiden ending was imminent, and he knew it. So he quit, and signing off for what he agreed to,
This man is truly not there upstairs or simply needed the coke money.
Hanging with a Human Time Bomb like this guy, it was surely coming to an end. What he did with his life after Maiden was exactly what he said he never wanted to do, which is live off his Maiden legacy. (Beats working at the gas station though!)
Sex, drugs, more sex, more drugs, all stifled his career leaving him in the shadow of Iron Maiden. Too bad he couldn't see it, or he was simply just collecting a cheque.
What bothered me most about this book, was the stories of the women beating. At first, his regrets seem sincere....then low and behold...he does it again, and again, etc...no shame, no conscience. Not to mention pounding on his bandmates....This book is best to get used...as to support people like this guy as little as possible....Read 'The Dirt', same stories, less women beating. To the band members who played with this guy, God Bless Ya.
