This book explains why - in describing in very candid detail the sad and addicted life he has led.
I find it amazing that he could, during such times, produce such brilliant music.
I am glad that I bought and read the book but saddened to recognise how so much of his life was wasted.
It was, as others have said, fun reading the narratives and background to the whole UK modern jazz scene and , in that respect, added a lot to my knowledge as well as stirring a lot of good memories.
Thank you, Peter, for taking the time to put the book together and sharing it with us all.
Take it easy Peter you are a big artist y this is a great book, as your music.
I recommend it to any jazz lover.
