Summaries and Reviews description: Product Description:

"This frenzied and harrowing roller coaster ride brings together some of the wildest and craziest drug stories ever told between the covers of one book. . . . About as addicting as some of the drug addled personalities that inhabit these grimy pages. . . . Bottom line, pick this one up and if you’re like me you’ll be anxiously awaiting the sequel." ―Classic Rock Revisited

“A wildly entertaining read . . . Morbid? You bet, but the book is a guilty pleasure that’s hard to put down.” ―New Noise Magazine

“. . . it calmed us down too much, so we took some acid, and then we took some mescaline to make it more colorful.” —Lemmy

These are the highest of the highs, the rainbow rides before the crash, from some of the music industry’s most fabled drug takers. Smoke Snort Swallow Shoot includes incredible excerpts from memoirs by Mötley Crüe, Aerosmith, Marilyn Manson, Johnny Cash, Lemmy (Motörhead), Slash (Guns N’ Roses), Gregg Allman (The Allman Brothers), Anthony Kiedis (Red Hot Chili Peppers), Marianne Faithfull, Rex Brown (Pantera) and NOFX, among others.

“Gregory’s idea of breakfast was to mix up a Brompton Cocktail—half morphine and half cocaine—and pass out on the floor of the Hotel Louisiana.” —Marianne Faithfull

Take a ride with Marilyn Manson as he negotiates a bad acid trip and an unexpected mind-bending psycho-sexual encounter. Head upstate with Aerosmith as they shoot guns and heroin, crash cars and consume infinite quantities of cocaine, pausing now and again to record Draw the Line. Travel to Amsterdam with Guns N’ Roses as they navigate through the red light district in search of a legendary fix. Disappear into a desert cave with Johnny Cash on a mission of death. Take a hilarious crash course in junkie studies with Smelly from NOFX, from introduction to withdrawal.

“Goddamn it, they’re coming after us. Everybody eat what you got, or throw it out, but do something.” —Duane Allman

Smoke Snort Swallow Shoot is a rollicking, often uproarious collection of some of the best writing on drugs ever to appear on the page. Sit back, relax and read. They did it so you don’t have to.
