A thoroughly enjoyable ride through the American musical wilderness. It brings out the inner geek in every rock 'n' roll dreamer. (Zane Lowe, BBC Radio 1 )
A book that shows how your obsessions can shape and change your life... Excellent. (James Dean Bradfield of Manic Street Preachers )
A road trip like no other, inspired by rock 'n' roll and hugely entertaining. (Huw Stephens, Radio 1 )'I howled myself silly. But like me, readers of Live Fast, Die Young will find their aching sides soothed by the heart-warming rhythms of mutual and musical harmony pulsing from two human hearts at their best.' Diann Blakely, National Book Critics Circle, Nashville Scene, Swampland
Among those rare volumes which are not only a joy sui generis, but also - and better yet - a joy to be shared by reading aloud. Mere satire is cheap, the blood in these pages is more authentic than any Nashville approximation of Americana.' Stanley Booth, The True Adventures of the Rolling Stones
