The affordably priced, large format paperback, of my greatest hits is now on sale. The blurb says…

"Mick Farren has spent more than four decades in the thick of the culture wars as a commentator, activist, essayist, poet and performer. Being a founding figure in the 1960s underground press, who was forced to defend his work at The Old Bailey, might well be sufficient laurels on which to rest, but, instead, he careered on through the London birth pangs of punk, the intoxicated madness of Lower Manhattan under Ronald Reagan, plus earthquakes and urban insurrection in Los Angeles. Here he shares some of his greatest stories with some of rock's most iconic people."

And, if you don’t believe the blurb, here are some clips of me reading short snatches of the book. Sadly I look like a bit of a chubby bastard and my vanity is not happy. It’s a bit of a bad angle and I was also on steroids at the time for my lousy cigarette-damaged lungs.

Yeah, so you do look a tad portly, but who cares. I'm years younger, and my hair is a deal greyer! Got it in hardback anyway. Hope it sells lots for you, mick.

As above - who cares. You shining star! It makes my heart sing that you keep on doing what you do.

All the best Micky, with love
