Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:
A fully revised and updated edition of this highly acclaimed book which is hailed as the definitive study of the extravagant, if somber, association between drugs and popular music. The 100 pages of new material cover the rise of Ecstasy and dance music, the links between rap music and "crack" cocaine, and the return of the wasted junky rock star that came with the Seattle grunge scene.

Review:
"Harry Shapiro's well-written book (fully revised and updated from an earlier version) is a feast of facts, fables and anecdotes: Detective Sergeant 'Nobby' Pilcher shouting "Postman, Special Delivery" into the entry phone before barging into the warren of flats known as The Pheasantry in a fruitless search for Eric Clapton. Crosby talking to Dylan about acid and being told: "Man, haven't you done that enough?" As time would tell, there was no such thing as enough for Crosby. Excessives make the best copy and this book is full of them. "

Jenny Fabian, Mojo, December 1999
