4.0 out of 5 stars Son, I'm thirty . . .and I want my first -time review $$$ 17 April 2000
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
For those who don't know the Happy Mondays, Black Grape, or anything about Shaun William Ryder, this is not the place to start. You have to hear the sound to understand anything about Shaun or the Mondays. It makes no difference that this is the story of a modern day music hedonist who could have laid waste to the wild reputations of scores of better known musicians if only they had ever gone toe to toe. What makes this book, and Shaun Ryder, fascinating is that it affords you a glimpse into the mind of soemone who doesn't fit into society, someone who sticks out on a scale so epic it is seen perhaps only a few times in a generation. This is a look at the life of a consummate outsider, whose excesses and lust for life made the whole world want to be an outsider too,if only for a little while. For those among you who may be looking for a few of the many gems unearthed from Shaun's garbled speaking voice over the years there is not much here; the story of Shaun's life is mainly told by observers, accomplices, and unwitting souls dragged along in his wake. This, however, is fitting, because I don't think any amount of explanation from him or from anybody else will ever afford us even a glimpse of understanding as to what it means to live inside the head of Shaun Ryder.
