Really interesting for fans of the Brit pop/ Madchester era, but not very insightful,

I enjoyed reading this autobiography and I read it really quickly. I am a huge fan of everything Brit Pop although not particularly the Charlatans, I just think Tim Burgess is a fascinating character! My main issue is that it does not actually give you much insight into his life. He chronicles events and albums and tours but other than a lot about drug taking I don't think you really get the nitty gritty as it were. I would have enjoyed hearing more about his personal relationships with his family, band members and Wife/Girlfriends. These end up just being sort of peripheral to his music and drug taking. But then I wasn't there, maybe his relationships literally were peripheral to his drug taking! But still I wanted more meat and feeling. I felt like it was more an account of what happened as oppose to an explanation, so I feel a bit short changed as it was not very revealing! However if you love this era and music it's not a long book and it does have interesting moments!
