Rock Bottom


Rock Bottom

This book tells about The Blood Orphans, a band whose glory days are far behind it. This is a very gritty novel, showing the sex and drugs of rock and roll. Each of the band members has his own baggage to deal with. This novel is pretty graphic, with the sex and the language, so that could be a turn off for some readers. I enjoyed hearing the names of bands that I used to listen to--Nirvana, Jane's Addiction etc. This is not a book showing the happy side of rock and roll fame!

  1. Hi Melissa,

    Good review. I notice a lot of books written about Rock n' Roll bands or singers seem to always end sadly. I guess it's the true behind the scenes view of the musicians we loved.

  2. Probably--rock and roll usually doesn't end well--how many people can really make it? And if they do, what is the price?
