I've finally bought Everything, but before I start to read it, I'd like to know how official it is, if it is. I mean, did Simon Price collect a bunch of rumours here and there, or is it a serious book?

And obviously we don't know what parts are about stuff really happened and what aren't...right?

I think the downhill skier bit is made up (although Nicky said it in a newspaper, probably to make him and Richey seem rock'n'roll....). But as I wasn't there at the time, I couldn't possibly say for sure.

It's a fab book though. Had me laughing out loud on more than one occasion!

That may be because the rest are complete cash-in rubbish. Pricey's book is good aye, but as has been said before, it's the best out of a bad bunch.

I know, miserable so-and-so, aren't I?

Simon's the best placed person to write a Manics book (outside of the band themselves/Martin Hall). Obviously it's not an "official" book but it is a serious attempt at looking at the band and their history. The little essays that go into more depth with certain aspects (fan culture, self harm etc) are well worth reading as well.
Personally, I really like it. But as I always say, writing a Manics book is a thankless task because of the nature of the fanbase. I think even if Nicky wrote an autobiography there's still going to be some fans who would take the "well, what would he know? He was drunk for most of it" sort of line.
Manixfans = never happy

Thanks everyone for your answers! I've already bought it, but I wanted to know how much trust put in it...

Age is no excuse for slowing down your songs!
The songs are always plenty fast enough for me! OK, some might have been slowed down a bit in comparison to the original but I never notice it too much.

Agree.

Yes, no naming your songs after a Manics song or album!

on the other hand MTV ROCKS has that mini-mix of videos from various artists from Oasis via PaTD to Brandon Flowers, but includes James's Neck and that broken bulb with blackboard in the background from Postcards video. I can sit in front of the telly 2 hours of Official UK Rock Charts just for those 8 miliseconds of James's Neck. bastards.
