Mislead by the title and by some of the reviews, I bought this book expecting to read about Sugerman getting mixed up with the excesses of The Doors and Iggy Pop while working as their manager. Instead, I got an autobiographic, tedious tale about a junkie who used to know famous musicians. Readers should be warned that in this sloppily written book, rock'n'roll is relegated to the background.

It's a side of Jim we never get to see anywhere else… Read Full Review

This is a must read if you want to get a real insight to what life was like for a teenager during the late '60's and early '70's in rock 'n rollin' LA… Read Full Review
