5.0 out of 5 stars GINGER GEEZER-GINGER GENIUS, 31 July 2005
A truly great read, at times utterly hilarious other times quite upsetting.The authors succeed in giving a totally un-biased account of Viv's life ; his highs and lows his triumphs his disasters.They dont portray him in any light, they just gave the full story 'as it happened'.Full of hilarious stories,from the Bonzo days especially.I rarely out loud when reading any book, at times this was achingly funny.It also deals with his low points-alcoholism,failed marriages,his valium addiction.Above all it is remarkably honest and frank account of a very brilliant,often mis-understood tortured man.At the time so many z list 'celebrities' write their uninteresting life stories when they are only 25, this is a brilliant dissection of a man who had about 5 normal lives at the same time.Brilliant written and wonderfully told, this is a fabulous book;The Ginger Geezer was completely unique.

5.0 out of 5 stars THE PINK FLOYD; THE NEXT PROJECTED SOUND OF '67, 13 Nov 2004
A brilliant read which I would recommend to all fans of the band.As the title suggests, it is a 'Personal History',not definitive and not an autobiography.Full of fascinating and often very witty anecdotes Nick Mason provides his own, often 'warts and all', insight into all the key events in the bands history.There are many unseen photos, personally I found the picture of Syd Barrett at Abbey Road in 1975 a dreadful shock.The attention to detail at times is quite extraordinary especially the early years of the band.At times hilarious,thoughtful and often very frank this is a must read.Beautifully packaged and presented this is a weighty tome in more ways than one.Fabulous.Shine on.
