Didn't know anything about Sebastian Bach or Skid Row but recently started listening to their music and found this book to be really engrossing. Sebastian narrates his book really well and is sincere and has genuinely won him another fan. I recommend this to all rock music and biography listeners.

An early architect of punk rock's sound, style, and fury, whose lip-curling sneer and fist-pumping persona vaulted him into pop's mainstream as one of MTV's first megastars, Billy Idol remains, to this day, a true rock 'n' roll icon. Now, in his long-awaited autobiography, Dancing with Myself, Idol delivers an electric, searingly honest account of his journey to fame - from his early days as front man of the pioneering UK punk band Generation X to the decadent life atop the dance-rock kingdom he ruled.

Really enjoyed this audiobook. Billy Idol reads this book passionately and details very personal experiences which can be darn right crazy! What a wild character and life led. One of the best audiobooks Ive had the pleasure of listening to. Shame it's over. Well done Billy

John Cleese describes his nerve-racking first public appearance, at St Peter's Preparatory School at the age of eight and five-sixths; his endlessly peripatetic homelife, with parents who seemed incapable of staying in any house for longer than six months; his first experiences in the world of work, as a teacher who knew nothing about the subjects he was expected to teach; his hamster-owning days at Cambridge; and his first encounter with the man who would be his writing partner for over two decades, Graham Chapman.

I found this book quite slow and not particularly funny. Some moments grabbed my attention but glad it's over really as it didnt cover full life story.

Iron Man chronicles the story of both pioneering guitarist Tony Iommi and legendary band Black Sabbath, dubbed "The Beatles of heavy metal" by Rolling Stone. Iron Man reveals the man behind the icon yet still captures Iommi's humor, intelligence, and warmth. He speaks honestly and unflinchingly about his rough-and-tumble childhood, the accident that almost ended his career, his failed marriages, personal tragedies, battles with addiction, bandmates, famous friends, newfound daughter, and the ups and downs of his life as an artist.

I had been wanting to give this a listen for a considerable amount of due, finally I got to listen and it was a really great listen. Some of Tony's stories are hilarious and he speaks openly about about all the chaos that ensued from pre sabbath up until 2012 just before '13'.

This is definitely going to be recommended to all my friends and thank you to Tony for being such an influence of me and the rest of the world.
