Not great literature, but what were you expecting?

From the very first page, it is obvious (sometimes painfully so) that this book was not ghostwritten. It's Dave, and nothing but Dave, in all of his rambling, schizophrenic, gramatically incorrect glory. This is no Hammer of the Gods. But when it comes to Dave, do we really want a serious, analytical discussion of his life? I don't think so. What we get is a look back through Diamond Dave's eyes at one of the most incredible careers in rock and roll. This book is a lot like his music. It's not meant to be taken all that seriously. It's not meant to be studied and analyzed. But when you look below the surface, you see that hint of brilliance that has made him one of the most talented performers in show business. This book reads a lot like one of Dave's interviews (and if you have ever heard him interviewed, you know what I mean). He just sort of rambles about events of the last several decades that have molded his life. No outline. No plot. The events described aren't even in chronological order. It just sounds like he took a tape recorder and talked about anything that popped into his head. But that just makes the book more enjoyable. Dave's life has been like a roller coaster and this book makes you feel like you are along for the ride. It's twenty plus years of girls, records, arenas and explorations into the deepest, darkest parts of the world like the Amazon and Himilayas. This is an incredible tale, told by an incredible performer. Just hold onto your hat and enjoy the ride.
