An enjoyable insight into the life and talents of one of my favourite artists. It's an interesting look into the world of Butch Walker and the stories behind the music he has written and performed, as well as an authentic overview of the changing music industry. Hugely entertaining, touching and genuine, 'Drinking with strangers' is an education and an inspiration for 'strangers' and fans alike. It demonstrates a passion and integrity rarely found within the music industry nowadays. And if you don't have it already, buy 'The Spade'.

Butch Walker and Matt Diehl have combined to write an autobiography that has a very strong voice, making it feel when you're reading it as if you're sat next to Butch at a bar, listening enraptured as he tells you all about his life; and what a life it's been!

I've been a fan of Butch's since the days of the so-called one hits wonder, Marvelous 3. Though many might only have heard of their smash hit 'Freak of the Week', there's so much more to this uber-talented songwriter and musician, and together Walker and Diehl guide you from his early adventures in hair metal, through to the massive highs and lows with Marvelous 3 and then out again the other side as he somehow emerges relatively unscathed to become the solo artist he is now.

For anyone with even a fleeting interest in the music scene, this autobiography really isn't to be missed. Butch holds nothing back, and the result is a fascinating insight into the debauched, cut-throat nature of today's popular culture, all with his own personal touch that makes you understand just why it is that over the years he's found himself drinking with so many strangers at bars across the world. Who can possibly resist listening to this modern day troubadour tell his tales? Not me, that's for sure.

Just finished reading this book after owning it for a day and a half, could hardly bear to put it down, one of the best autobiographies I have ever read.
