      Last week I went to Carmine Appice’s book reading/signing at Barnes & Noble, Springfield, New Jersey. One week later, I am a better person for it. Seriously. This was more than a rock ‘n’ roll memoir, it was a religious experience. Carmine Appice is refreshingly honest, down-to-earth and funny as hell/5(11).   From ’67 Soho to ’68 San Francisco, this epic plot spans the band's triumphs, travails and demise. It’s an anticipated journey, for sure, with full doses of sex, drugs and rock ‘n’ roll.   The book consciously does not drift too far into drummer-speak; while there are a few descriptions of triple flam-a-diddles, a one-hand press roll, and the like, Sex, Drums, Rock n Roll! is always more about Aronoff s personal s:

Sex And Thugs And Rock`N`Roll: A Year in Kings Cross written by Billy Thorpe. Billy Thorpe lives on as an Australian rock legend, but in he was a year-old singer fresh out of Brisbane, who arrived in.

The title is misleading, as the book is NOT about Sex and drugs and rock and roll. It is more about the history of rock and roll, as told by a motley crue of journalists. Sure, it does involve some sex and drugs, but that is more incidental. The book is over pages, but more than half the articles shouldn't be in it anyway/5(4).
