I was initially sceptical given the poor reviews so far, however I throughly enjoyed it.

The book isn't about the whole life of the worlds greatest rock n roll drummer but 10 years of Dougal's employment trying to keep moonie out of trouble. Tales about drugs, hookers and destroying hotel rooms are well known but the stories of moon's sheer lunacy are worth getting this book alone.

The only thing that was disappointing were the lack of stories about Keith's legendary habit of blowing up toilets but this may of been outwith Dougal's time.

Recommended if you love rock stars.
