  1. A scathing indictment of the music industry- but what did Nitzsche done to change it? The story of how Nitzsche chose not to intervene when Brian Jones was in personal trouble is very telling. The only good thing about Nitzsche is that he at least didn’t pull any punches in his criticism of the industry and artists. For example, his criticisms of the Neil Young and the Rolling Stones seemed eerily spot-on. But you could easily say, Nitzsche was jealous. Could he lead a band? No. Did he secretly pine to lead a band? Definitely.

  2. the guy had obviously just read Catcher In The Rye was affected by it like an impressionable teenager. He sounds like the drunk at the end of the bar pontificating on all of life’s imponderables. Funny at first until he quickly starts to bore the shit out of you. Bitter, twisted, jealous, wife beater….sad for a man with so much talent. Drink and drugs are not your friend.
