Please Read Me

I checked out Please Kill Me from the CU library my freshman year of college on a friend's recommendation. You should check it out too. It's set up as a pastiche of narratives from all the key players in the 60s-70s New York punk scene, and it's priceless. Lou Reed, Joey Ramone, Iggy Pop, Andy Warhol, Richard Hell, Nico, and all their tragically hip, drugged-out pals and bandmates contribute.
If you're still not ready to commit to a library trip and the inevitable overdue fines you're going to rack up, go ahead and get a feel for it at Google Books.

The Stooges- 1969
