Some of the interview subjects are clueless when it comes to the bands, especially Everlast who talks about "Mike Patton and that drummer with the dreads" at one point. Seriously? Mike Bordin is a key member of the band and I'd have thought that a hip-hop artist would have been far more interested in the drummer than he appears to be. I realize that Mike Patton is the obvious connection between the two bands and has a huge fanbase, but there is no reason not to be more informed than that. It's almost like Greg Prato just interviewed whomever he could and tossed Everlast in there because he thought that (lol) someone might buy the book because of what the former House of Pain member thought.
The quotes at the end of the book are haphazardly arranged and seem like they were just tossed in there because Prato couldn't find a place to insert them in the book and wanted to fill some space. I get that he wanted to use all of the quotes he got, but sometimes you've got to leave material on the cutting room floor.
Lastly, I again understand the connection between the bands is Mike Patton but it seems wrong to make the book about Faith No More/Mr. Bungle and not include some of his other projects. Yes, I know they're briefly mentioned. Perhaps Prato could have taken a little more time and fleshed out information on the other bands to create the Mike Patton Companion, which is really what this book should have been.
I wasn't sure how the back/forth between the two bands would work (obviously this is at it's most effective if you're a fan of both bands), but that actually ended up being one of the most interesting things about it. Even if you prefer one over the other, it becomes clear that you can't get a true, honest understanding of either band without hearing about the other. I enjoyed Prato putting in his own personal experiences here and there, but was glad he didn't overdo it.
I would have liked for a wider range of those around and influenced by the band to have been included (the guy's from Primus seemed an odd exclusion). Prato kept returning to the same guys, which are fine but at times felt as if I wanted a new person's perspective.
Overall an entertaining and easy read that really drives home the point about how important both of these bands have become.
