review 1: I loved Stone Temple Pilots in the 90's; Purple was one of my favorite albums. I was excited to read this and had high hopes after reading the reviews here. Sorry to say, this book is tiresome. I don't know if it is the writing style, the lack of interesting details that draw the reader inside, or the celebrity name-dropping. It's just not that great. Mary has obviously been through a lot and I admire her bravery, but this seemed like a wasted (pun intended) opportunity because there is an amazing story here. If you want a great rock/addiction/recovery memoir, check out Duff McKagan's book, which is a delight. After reading I went to You Tube and watched Velvet Revolver videos...Scott looks pretty hot in those silver pants. Just sayin'.
review 2: This b
... moreook was very good, but not excellent. Mary Forsberg weiland gives an account of bi-polar disorder and drug addiction through her childhood through her famed/infamous years with rock star Scott Weiland of Stone Temple Pilots. While Mary provides a lot of emotion, I think that she was giving an overview of events. It would have been nice to see her dig deeper, give more daily accounts, describe more events. This book left me wanting to know more of the story. I have obtained her former husband's story in hopes of finding out more about the life of these fascinating people. less
