Among my all-time favorites, Please Kill Me is a real-life fairy tale of drugs, excess and rage. This oral history chronicles the rise of the New York - based punk movement from its earliest roots with the MC5, the Velvets and Dolls through the Ramones and beyond. These stories - told by the men and women who changed the world of music and fashion forever - border on the fantastic.

If you're a fan of oral history and the interview format, even if you have no current interest in punk and New York in the 60s/70s, you'll love this collection of stories about the beginnings of an entire musical genre. The personalities interviewed and described in this book seem too eccentric to be real - in the best possible way.

A simply indispensable book about punk rock and it's milieu, if you ever vaguely thought that it mattered. And. Fascinating.

I keep coming upon references to this book. The format is so great - so many interesting personalities. Required reading for sure!

This book only proves that punk is not just an attitude, but a movement worthy of documentation. Highly recommended.
