I will find this hard to wait for...lacking in patience! A sneaky look would be terrific though!

Oh, I hope so! If Frank writes books as open and honestly as he writes songs, this is going to be so interesting!

I agree it'll be a great read. I'll definitely order a copy even if it's a U.K only release but find that scenario hard to imagine! Right now it's not on the U.S Amazon site to pre order but hopefully that will change in the future.

It might be terrible. What if it's all like "Played a gig tonight. I was brilliant. On a scale of 1-10 I would definitely have scored a 14. Afterward I signed some boobs. They were a 7. To celebrate I had a bacon sandwich WITH CHEESE. No fucking expense spared for this colossus of man. Tonight I will wear my crown to bed." There might be an entire chapter just about his hair. And one about the perils of unreachable itches while performing.

I was hoping for something along the lines of Gene Simmons' "Kiss and Make-up".

Haven't read it, but I know Turner and he loves bacon.

Well, now at least we know what Evan's tell-all book about Frank will be like...

Oh, I just assumed Frank has a scratcher of unreachable itches written in his tour rider. Thanks for clearing that up!

Maybe I should Kickstarter it? Offer people the opportunity to be woven into the fictitious tales that I will brazenly to pass off as truth. Like the time Frank developed an addiction to cola bottles. There was an intervention headed up by his sister, following a restraining order placed on him by his local news agent. He had to move and everything.

NO TRUTH TOO UNTRUE! THE UNBELIEVABLE TRUTH THAT CANNOT BE BELIEVED!

Oh, by the way, I do genuinely think this book he is writing will be excellent. But, you know, he's never written a book before so let's not give him the Booker Prize just yet.
