Below is a possible rejected/early cover of the book found by’s Tyrant.  It could easily be a fake though.

    Looks awesome! The second one reminds me of Anthony Kiedis’ memoir cover.

  • Kai

    The real cover is, and I don’t often say this about Scott, beautiful. Like that one Spin photo shoot.. Clint Eastwood-esque.
    Can’t wait to read it!

    Wow. He looks absolutely terrible in that photo.

    Can’t wait to read it though

    I rather read the autobiography of Taylor Momsen.

    It’d be great jack-off material.

  • Stosh

    I’m buying this the day it comes out!! The man has lived an extraordinary life!!

  • Mom in the Box

    The picture is appropriate for the title but it’s sad how thin he was. Glad he is back to a healthy weight and doing well. Can’t wait to read it. Hopefully it will not be delayed again.

  • Aaron

    wow those are creepy shots

  • david james

    Strange pic given the title of the book. He actually looks pretty ill in this pic. Sad really when you comapre STP unplugged yes I know it was 18 years ago but rest of band look great. Thats what drugs does to you I suppose if you survive. Still glad Scott is here. Some great memories I am sure.

    Scott can still rock like a mother fucker live if he’s sober enough. I’ve seen him 3 times and all 3 times he blew me the fuck away. He’s a hell of a frontman.

  • gustogo

    Is it just me or does anybody else think he looks like Vincent van Gogh?

  • Amy

    This man is a genius. Even geniuses have flaws. It amazes me hiw peoples first instict is to point out flaws. I have seen this man perform over 20 times, and am in awe and inspired at the same time. I bought this book on first opportunity available. Its gotta be great, hes an astounding artist and am sure will blow us all away at the picture he paints with his words in this book. Im rooting for him, as we all should for each other instead of so quick to judge. We love u scott! Sing us a song melody man!
