How is it?
Inder:
Absolutely. Here's another collection of words:

Table salt (spoon hinge)
Octopus (Ukraine)
St. Petersburg (arms)
Ginger beer (cauliflower)
Pat Sajak (PSak)
Lamp post (self evident)
Florida Timeshare (ditto)
Heraclitus (EMI)
Developers (Developers Developers)
Boogie With Your Children

Can't imagine I'll ever read it. It smells of one of those lazy bios that are churned out because there is a fan market available for them.

In that case, I wonder how much money the authors actually make off the thing. Is it really worth it to even spend the time writing?

Yeah, I've wondered about those kinds of rock bios, which almost certainly sell more copies in the dollar bin. Maybe it's akin to scholarly work that may not sell well but is important for professional, in this case to segue into more magazine gigs that do pay.

Biography as portfolio? Not a terrible endeavor, but surely a waste of that much paper.

I'm sure he makes a living out of it anyway. His portfolio includes books about One Direction, Harry Styles and Katy Perry which sound like obvious commission jobs for which he'd get a moderately attractive advance. The Mick book, on the other hand, seems like a passion project with little financial incentive which makes the sheer lack of quality all the more disappointing. He's had 40 years to write a book about Mick/The Clash and still it feels like it was put together over the course of a weekend. Still, it's good that there is a Mick book out there at all. At least he is filling that gap in the market so I applaud him for that at least.
