Descriptions du produit

A Riot of Our Own Johnny Green was a footloose slacker who loved punk rock, stumbled into being a roadie for the Sex Pistols, then tripped again into a job pushing sound equipment for the Clash and driving their beat-up van to performances in the mean industrial towns of England. Disaffected youth anointed the Clash as their spokesmen and made the group synonymous with punk itself in the late 1970s. Eventually beco... Full description

A great memoir of The Only Band That Matters! 11 février 1999
Par Will Errickson - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
What a blast! I read this book in one day, I just could not get enough of its personal, unpretentious and colorful tone. Johnny Green has written a sly, thoughtful, and very sharp memoir of his days with the almighty Clash. Here one actually sees the courage and stamina and wit it took to be a punk rock band in the 70s--Green writes vividly of the police troubles, the riots and the madness (and poverty) of life on the road. He also does a great job of sketching the personalities of the Clash men: Strummer comes off the best, with his man-on-the-street persona, his gentle whisper in conversation, his concern for his downtrodden fans, and his insatiable interest in life around him. Jones is the prima donna, a "muso" with a definite vision for his band, fueled by coke, pot and women. Simonon is the sharp, funny, beautiful one, very cool. Topper's spiral into drug abuse begins near the book's end--he's the guy that just goes along, but Green always seems impressed by his talent. We see here how The Clash were truly trailblazers; albums like "London Calling" and "Give 'em Enough Rope" are among the finest British rock'n'roll ever recorded. I love this book, found it more insightful than the recent bio, "Last Gang in Town"; the Clash finally became real people to me, involved with the real world and people of all types. The Clash still remain, for me, the Only Band That Matters. Thanks to Johnny Green for putting his story to paper! (and after all this, won't you give me a smile???)

Best Clash Book???? 11 mai 2002
Par Donny Danger - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
I bought this book on Joe Strummer's recommendation in a recent interview... but if this is the best book about the Clash then that is a shame... it is another one of those dry accounts by a "bystander/not a writer" who rifled through their diary and patched together a string of less-than-remarkable anecdotes until he had enough pages for a book.
For someone who hung out with the Clash on a daily basis for several years I would have expected more insight into their personalities. Many of the "stories" related left me wondering why he thought that was interesting enough to mention.
If you are a die-hard Clash fan you do get some snippets of insight into their day-to-day working methods while rehearsing for and recording the classics "Give 'Em Enough Rope" and "London Calling" but, beyond that, it is little more than another boring rock&roll travelogue offering scant depth, details, or juice.

disappointing, but made me want a beer 2 novembre 2002
Par A.A. - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Man, I really wanted to like this book. You won't find a bigger Clash fan than me, and books about them are scarce and usually re-tell the same stories over and over again. I was hoping that this one, written by Johnny Green (the Clash's former road manager), would provide some new insight into the band and the period of time as a whole.
Very few new things are revealed. Mick Jones seems difficult, Joe Strummer is idealistic, Paul is handsome and charismatic, and Topper is stoned. Drugs and alcohol flow freely, but is that new? No, not really. The author himself spends much of the book commenting on his own intoxicated state, which often leads to *hilarious* anecdotes where he is naked/driving a bus/throwing sound equiptment into the Thames.
I realized how disappointed I was with this book when I found myself obsessing over a two-sentance mention Johnny Green makes about not paying child support. Why should I even notice this? At the end of reading this book, all I wanted to do was smack Johnny Green's big, drunk face with a boot and scream, "I don't care how much coke you snorted, stop talking about it already!" His narration (which often sounds like the rambling of the big goon at the party who won't shut up about his glory days doing keg stands) gets in the way of really detailing the personalities of much of the band. Like, he'll begin an anecdote about the Clash's intensity onstage, only to interrupt it to describe whatever he was drinking. Other reviewers have mentioned how his relationship with the band is hard to figure out, and I agree. Is he a close family member? Or more a member of the crew?
Day-to-day descriptions are pretty good, though, and there are enough occasionally revealing anecdotes about the band to keep the reader hoping for more. The best thing would be if a member of the band writes a book, I guess. Please, Joe Strummer?

hugely entertaining 17 juillet 1999
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
I read this book in one sitting quite easily. It was a blast to read, with one hilarious anecdote after another. And Green really does do a good job of conveying the excitement and innovation that surrounded the Clash, making you understand why they truly did matter so much. The personalities in the band definitely come out - in the case of Mick Jones, not really in a terribly flattering manner. Strummer on the other hand seems incapable of doing any wrong and comes off golden. The truth undoubtedly lies somewhere in the middle, but you will not doubt that everyone in the band was absolutely committed to the music - even Jones, whom Green describes as incapable of buying his own milk, admirably performs shortly after having his hand slammed in a car door. A great read, without pretentious social analysis - just a well-written book about one of the world's greatest rock bands.
He's not the best writer, but his style really gives a good ... 11 juillet 2015
Par John Beltz Boyd - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Outstanding. Johnny gives a different take on the band than most will give. He was there and lived through the glory days and did a lot of the grunt work that most people would never understand if they were never on the road. He's not the best writer, but his style really gives a good reflection on how the band lived, toured and played. You can really hear Joe's voice whenever you see "Johnny!"
Finishing this was really difficult as I didn't want it to end. Wish there was some stuff taken out that is floating around somewhere. If I ever bump into Johnny I'll beg him to send me an unedited copy.
