John Cale has led an extraordinary, often hilarious life at the cutting edge. A volatile personality, an innovative thinker and an expressive storyteller, he has wrestled with drugs, alcohol, and fame, yet is now at the peak of health and artistic achievement. He lives in New York City.
Victor Bockris, a veteran chronicler of the Beats and the Factory, has worked closely with Cale to produce what will undoubtedly become one of the most vivid and revealing insights into the heart of the rock world.Review:
"Cale's story is remarkable and unmatched in rock history." -- Melody Maker
"Painfully illuminating reading...Beautifully written and imaginatively designed." -- Wired
