Reading this book was hard work,and pretty irritating to get through. It is written by an Englishman and is strictly for English audiences. Practically every page contains slang, colloquialisms and references to people, places, and things that have no meaning to Americans at all. The writing style is also confusing, going back and forth with the subject at hand so you constantly have to go back to figure out who said what about who when etc. NOT a pleasant read. I am a great Peter Green fan so I muddled through. The author is obviously not a musician either, not very insightful commentary on music or musicians. Lots of anecdotal hero worship, which according to Peter's history and interviews is exactly what he does not want. Hard to believe this is the authorised biography.

Celmins pretty much lays out such facts as he could glean from acquaintances. The dismal story of how the shrinks blew apart Green's nervous system is not told, probably because Celmins couldn't find them or couldn't get them to talk. Celmins does not write the introduction to this third edition, so he may not even be with us anymore (Alan Clayson has the duty now). Well written and a fascinating read because the reader must decide. My take is that Green ran out of ideas prior to leaving the business, and attempted to counter his depression with acid. Once the wise ones administered electro-shock, it was really the end of Green as a composer.

This biography was poorly written and organized, but is still one of the few sources of information and insight into the life and times of the mysterious Peter Green. While almost every book I have read blamed the Munich commune and their LSD on Peter Green's fast departure from "our world", this book does not take this easy route. This book painted Peter Green as a very complex man with a fragile and sensitive psyche and although drugs may have taken him over the edge, there were other factors that drove him to the edge.

A difficult book to find and a difficult book to read, but a must read for anyone who is interested in Peter Green the man and Peter Green, one of the most creative guitarists of all time.
