5.0 out of 5 stars Don't 'gob' on this!, 5 Nov. 2004
By A Customer
This review is from: Rotten: No Irish, No Blacks, No Dogs (Paperback)
I found this book extremely interesting and the description of Johns childhood and upbringing and the atmosphere of society in general and life in London at that time was really fascinating. As a child of the '70's growing up on a council estate where money was tight it conjured up all kinds of memories. Whilst I thought John wrote intelligently I was not too impressed by the editing of the book with its American spellings and, my pet hate, saying 'math' instead of 'maths'! His portrayal of his friend Sid was touching and honest and the aftermath of his death was not glorified in this book to cash in from fans of the macabre but was dealt with in a respectful manner. It was interesting that his fellow band members sided against him when he was fighting M.M. in court for ALL their interests! His a bigger man than many. Most of all this book presents in a logical and truthful way how the UK did not copy Punk from New York but that it grew organically from an entirely different seed.The Sex Pistols helped to cross pollinate the two.
