SUMMARY ð PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB ´ Eric Burdon

Don't Let Me Be MisunderstoodWhile Eric Burdon may be best remembered for his unforgettable vocals on the Animals' platinum hit House of the Rising Sun this Rock and Roll Hall of Fame member has never stopped having adventures Burdon was ripped off by unscrupulous agents accountants and record labels hounded by the police and framed for a crime he didn't commit Yet through it all he never became bitter He was the first rocker to play behind the Iron Curtain He sang with Jimi Hendrix chas. It's a fascinating read but As another reviewer mentioned when it comes to rock and rollers I often like them less after reading their autobiography There is one moment in this book in which Burdon contemplates his fame and wonders why people love him wonders if he deserves all the praise Before reading this I would have invented a dozen reasons why I love him and would have thought all were true Now I realize that what I have always loved about Burdon comes down to two things his voice is arguably the best in all of rock and when he was a young man he was my definition of attractive But no he is not the man I hoped him to be He comes off in the book as shallow concerned mainly about drugs and getting laid Very disappointing The book itself needs a good copy editor not because of typos or punctuation errors but because so many small bits of information are repeated over and over again I don't mind nonlinear narratives and I didn't have any trouble understanding that the book is written as a series of thematic reveries; thus a character who dies in one reverie must necessarily be alive in another one involving him But I don't need each reverie including the line I was living in a house at the top of Laurel Canyon So many things are repeated that it gets a bit annoying Too so many people die from drugs and except for a couple Eric doesn't seem to be overly affected In many cases he rather spits on their grave and although some appear to deserve it it's just disconcerting Finally I had the feeling throughout that many events were exaggerated and I see that this is confirmed in some other reviews with people flat out stating that didn't happen I do have a much better understanding of Eric now that I've read the book and I don't regret reading it But I had hoped to be left with a favorable impression of the man who wrote Anything and When I Was Young
