Disappointed in your favorite stars memoir?

Have you ever been in this position? I recently started reading John Lydons "Anger is an Energy" and this is what I am coming across. John Lydon was lead singer of influential punk band Sex Pistols in the late 1970s. If you have ever heard him, he brought some spunk and spontaneity to music - as well as style. I loved the band and it acted as a gateway for me, as I started exploring other less mainstream genres. His memoir on the other hand.....seems to be him ragging on countless celebrities, his band mates and even just acting as though he was the bread and butter of the band, when clearly there were other way important components. In short, I am finding myself irritated at someone I really liked! Only 200 pages to go until it can collect dust on my bookshelf... Have you ever had this happen to you?

Sounds like he hasn't mellowed with age and is still Johnny Rotten.

Perhaps more Rotten than he used to be! Ha

most celebrity autobios are ghost written - Lydon has become increasingly commercialized and really sold out more nowadays, even advertizing butter and competing on game shows

I'd still probably read it anyway, just because I'm a fan. I might not like it, but I wouldn't mind checking it out. If you're a fan, both Kim Gordon and Chrissie Hynde have good autobiographies out. If you haven't read them already, I recommend them.

I used to like this band too. Sorry to hear he turned into (or stayed) a complete jerk.
