A tragically short life.,
This review is from: Ginger Geezer: The Life of Vivian Stanshall (Paperback)
An excellent book, recounting the life, warts and all, of Viv Stanshall, the lead singer in the Bonzo Dog Doo-dah Band.
With many interviews and photos, it charts the rise and fall of a Great Briton (accept no substitute).
Stanshall was an eccentric, as wonderfully surreal as anything he recorded, and this book illustrates this with many charming anecdotes.
If you want a happy ending, don't bother with thsi book. It also shows how alcoholism ended the promise of this man's life.
A balanced portrait of an underappreciated artist.
