Punk legend Richard Hell—cofounder of Television and the Heartbreakers, and bandleader behind Richard Hell and the Voidoids—pours his heart out in a memoir, about rising alongside Patti Smith and the Ramones at CBGB, opening for the Clash and his descent into drug addiction. The prose is candid and straightforward, without much of the self-serving nostalgia that easily could have accompanied such a trip.
