Hugh Cornwell: Multitude of Sins


Hugh Cornwell, ex-frontman for the Stranglers, has always been one of my favorite punk guitar players.  He left the Stranglers back in 1990 after 14 years of ups and downs and went on to have a passable solo career.  Cornwell's written two books, both of which are highly interesting to Stranglers fans.  The first "Stranglers: Song by Song" logs every Strangler song and describes how it was written, what it's about, and what was going on at the time.  His second book, "Multitude of Sins" is a more straightforward biography covering life before, during, and after the Stranglers.  Some might not enjoy the non-linear approach Cornwell took with the book, but I found it to be a good read.  If you want stories of rock & roll excess from a Telecaster guitar guru, you won't be disappointed!
