Product DescriptionFrom the height of success and celebrity through the pit of addiction and alcoholism, to an almost mystical vision of the near future, a longstanding rock legend recreates the whirlwind life of a rock musicianFrom Library Journal``I have never wanted simply to tell my own story. But I have tried here to attend to a wide range of feelings . . . aspects of my struggle to discover what beauty really is,'' says the creative force behind the rock group The Who in the introduction to this strange, compelling collection of poetry and prose. In his quest, Townshend uncovers family, friends, ambition, addiction, infidelity, obsession, and life on the road. References to horses provide a theme that appears to be part obsession, part allegory. Particularly haunting is ``Champagne on the Terraces,'' an insight into alcoholism and family life. In addition to being a sometimes disguised autobiography of a very important figure in rock, this is also intriguing experimental writing packed with vivid imagery. For rock collections and large public libraries, where fans may demand it. Susan Avallone, ``Library Journal''Copyright 1985 Reed Business Information, Inc.
