Fucked by Rock B/w I Have the Greatest Respect for You, George
The Unimaginable Confessions of Zodiac MindwarpeBook - 2016
Bringing together the previously unpublished I Have the Greatest Respect for You George and the new, expanded Fucked by Rock, the man behind Zodiac Mindwarp offers shocking, hilarious episodes and events from a decade of debauchery, derangement, and brain-damaging excess Mark Manning was an everyday Yorkshire poet until, in the early 1980s, he found himself possessed by the spirit of Zodiac Mindwarp: High Priest of Love, International Sex God of Everything, and reasonably competent tunesmith. He abandoned life in Leeds and let his alter ego Zodiac take him on a trip into the deepest, darkest crevices of the rock landscape with his own diabolical pop group the Love Reaction. Fame and world tours with Guns 'n' Roses and Iron Maiden followed. In 2001, he published the rock biography Fucked By Rock, in which the usual platitudes of excess seen through expensive sunglasses were replaced by weird tales of the world's underbelly, interband fireworks fights, tour bus vampires, and a road crew who hated the band even more than they hated themselves. Eventually, he conceived of a prequel to be named I Have The Greatest Respect For You George. Written in the same ringmaster-cum-casual-observer style, this new work uncovers the weird life of a working class teen poet and rocker in waiting as he grinds his way through the 1970s and all it had to offer. --Provided by publisher.
