Has anyone read this book by Danny Sugerman ?

I was just flicking through it at Waterstones and was a bit surprised to read he died in 2005 !!!

Yes, excellent book. Some of my favorite Iggy stories are in it - the fridge scene totally cracks me up.

Danny was never quite able to fully get off drugs and they got him in the end.

It is a TERRIFIC book.

it's heavily fictionised, though, so you can't really rely on it as history. As you might grasp from the book, not many people liked him...

I'd love to know how he ended up with Fawn Hall of the Oliver North/Iran Contra scandal during the late 80's. She was North's secretary. Quite a switch of venue so to speak!
