Drinking with Strangers
by Butch Walker
This is the book that got me home from our recent European tour. It was the perfect book for the job. It actually made me want the flight to be a little longer.
Basically it’s the life story of a small town 80′s cheese rocker who always gets in, but never gets all the way to the top, and ultimately finds out that he’s way better off where he is. (Which is: one of the most successful pop songwriter/producers in the world today, so….). But anyway, this guy is awesome, the stories are superfun, his life has been filled with stories of being tricked, fucked, lied to, lied about, ripped off, manipulated and screwed over that I thought only happened to The Dandy Warhols. Nice to know we weren’t the only sucker dipshits in the game.
Anyhoo, I’ve never heard any of his music and he does occasionally say some pretty silly shit but I can honestly say I’m a fan of him, his “voice” and his attitude about life so get this book. It’s great.
So much violent fun-fun I almost needed a nap in the middle.
Happy New Year.
Thanks to all of those who helped us get where we were going this year, wether you bought a single or traveled around Europe or Australia or the US to see us at every show, we appreciate it more than we can ever say. Thank you so much for making us a part of your life. Twenty-thirteen’s already got some fun up its sleeve. Stay tuned, rockers.
We have been and ever shall be The Dandy Warhols.
THE DANDY WARHOLS
Holy Moses. What a journey. Are you fugging kidding me. Whose genius idea was this? To write a book about WWII told by the greatest winemakers in history. Incredible. It’s not a linear story so much as a collection laid out in mostly chronological order and including everything from the Lafites to Perrier to Adolf and Hermann to the children of Domaine Drouhin.
