Fans will not be surprised that Blackmore insists on playing soccer and rigging the games, Gillan drinks prodigiously, Jon Lord reads, Glover makes the peace and Paice is a closet accountant. But there are nice extra stories here too and Colin has a wonderful way of poking fun without ever appearing too rude. Blackmore's wig warrants several mentions, Hughes snorting so much coke that he insists on playing instantly composed songs to Colin all night (described as 'drivel'), Graham Bonnet jumping out a window to get a haircut, Blackmore (again) punching people and running away, it's all here. No much about the music but lots about the people, which is about right for this type of book in my view. Few reputations emerge unscathed, except perhaps those of Jon Lord and Roger Glover. The real story here is just how isolated from reality most successful rock musicians can become and how self-serving are their public utterances in interviews.
The essential flow is just year on year touring, album, break for Christmas (a tradition) with a background story of Colin's own family problems, the death of his parents and his eventual settling in Florida. He comes across as a very pleasant man who holds few grudges for the sadly shoddy treatment he received from the DP organization at the end. The book is the nearest thing to sitting down with him for a few pints and chatting about life on the road over the years. This is entertainment, and once you start, you'll probably race through it in a few sittings. That said, it's got enough substance to justify the price and provides a nice complement to the other books on these giant bands but you just wish, at some point, he'd scream at those big egos and tell them to grow up. Guess if he had, he'd not have lasted long enough with the bands to write this account.
