Book Description

4 Feb 2010
The last great rock 'n' roll memoir, Andy McCoy's autobiography covers the legendary guitarist's life and exploits from childhood through to the rekindling of his massively influential band, Hanoi Rocks, in the 2000s. McCoy helped introduced punk to Finland from an early age - and from their base in a Stockholm subway station Hanoi Rocks embarked on a wild death-defying jet-setting thrill ride. Includes dozens of rare, candid photos and a new preface written by McCoy in 2009 after the final breakup of Hanoi Rocks.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not bad. 23 Nov 2011
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Well, I don't know how to put in the right words but I'll do my best (I'm not a native english speaker either). I like H. Rocks and I enjoyed the book, one of the most honest music bios I've read but I find it somekind of contradictory at times. Probably (as McCoy states at the beginning) it's because the way it was written, kind of moody and some chapters are fueled by booze and drugs as you may expect (nothing especially wrong with that but kind of affects reading's fluency). Having read recently Tony Iommi's bio I also find this one vainglorious and egotistical at times (not a weird thing among musicians that have reached some notoriety) if we compared both, I mean, McCoy may be a legend in Finland and known at some point in the music business but Iommi is a legend at all levels related to heavy metal and other genres, everybody knows who is, and his bio is way more humble, and that's something that I, personally, appreciate; in any case is not "annoying" in that sense (at least not as much as Anthony Kiedis bio; awful IMO). Other than that there are cool facts I had no idea about, if you're expecting a full in depth-20 pages inmersion into Razzle's death don't hold your breath which is cool since the book is not only about that sad experience, there are other interesting aspects that I found quite entertaining and the book covers many aspects from this peculiar and excellent guitar player who deserved (along with H. Rocks) to break big time into the music business. Has plenty of pictures and "side notes" that nurture the reading. I recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars He really is a legend!! 26 April 2011
By Joe
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This book is a must have for any hanoi rocks fan, it has great stories, and photographs from the early days, and even more tales from McCoy's projects after. This book is written from the heart, by a true musical genius, and is very touching at times. Especially whilst talking about Razzle R.I.P. Their is great happiness, sorrow and partying, and all the sex drugs and rock n roll you could want, all told by the outlaw legend himself, so sit back with a bottle of jack daniels and enjoy!!

4.0 out of 5 stars great but quick. 29 Aug 2011
By Prity de Lioncourt - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
You can get a little lost in the beginning because he doesn't follow a straight timeline but once you get used to it, it's really good. I've laughed and cried. Funny moments, sad ones and many curiosities that you would never believe. If you're a hard, sleaze or glam rocker fan, you will enjoy it. Unfortunately you get to the end too quickly and that means that Andy could have said much more.

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing 19 Feb 2014
By Wan - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I was hoping to learn more about how this fascinating band evolved in it's short but very influential career. This book feels very loosely edited and we zig-zag through Andy McCoy's life in sort of a shambolic fashion. Perhaps this was by design, but more than once I was scratching my head and flipping backwards thinking I'd missed a few pages. Many of the key events in Hanoi Rocks' early days are described very matter-of-factly and without much detail or recollection of emotion. There's almost no window into how the songs were written, which particularly annoyed me because I'd always thought of Hanoi Rocks as writers of great rock songs and I understood Andy to be the main composer. I was also disappointed to find very little in the book (post-childhood) about Andy's guitar playing. I think his approach is unique and I wish he'd spoken more about how his sound has evolved over the years. There are of course many retellings of the wild adventures and often tragic lows that come with fame and excess in young adulthood and beyond. These are entertaining to a point, but for me, over-weighted this short read. I appreciated Andy's honesty in looking back at his life choices and he certainly comes across as a real person...very kind-hearted. I just wish he had gone a bit deeper into the music.

Love Hanoi Rocks so this was a great read, it was written poorly in some chapters but kind of expected from a rockstar lol. Just wish the book would've been longer...maybe theres a second part out there. Delivery was very prompt on this one and condition was in mint condition with a bookmark:)

5.0 out of 5 stars Andy still rocks!!!! 2 Jan 2011
By Big T. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Good history about Andy and Hanoi Rocks as there is not alot of background info on the band. The spoiler is that Andy reveals that Razzle had killed his best friend on the Isle of Wight by driving when he was drunk as a teenage, how ironic!!! Good read, check it out!
