Additional Description


"Writing in the voice of a rock and roll icon like Keith Richards is an incredible risk, but Hilary Sideris proves up to the task. 'Most Likely to Die' is a romp. With each poem's series of couplets like a guitar tab, her fingering is spot on -- she hits all the notes, and dishes out some wicked riffs." -- Gerry LaFemina, author of "Steampunk" and "Vanishing Horizon"

"You needn't give a toss about Keith Richards or his autobiography to love Hilary Sideris's 'Most Likely To Die.' Each poem is a stand-alone vignette, with the lasting resonance of a haiku. But the cumulative power of this volume is visceral. These poems, one after another, each as rich as a blues 78, have attitude while still being tender. Covering the full arc of Richards's life, from wartime Britain to Altamont and other crossroads, these poems exemplify how a precise image or anecdote can make an everyman out of an icon." -- Steve Koenig, Editor of "Acoustic Levitation"

"WOW. Where does one begin? As a jazzman of the same generation, on a similar path, and the designated driver for several stoned-out peers, to and from the famous Altamont concert, I find these poems ring many distant and familiar bells. Earthy and scathingly honest reflections on the Rolling Stones' interactions with substances, one another and their early musical influences, this is a clear and concise portal into their lives and processes of creating the music we've come to know and love." -- Ron McClure, Bassist
