9781493752324: Too High to Die: Meet the Meat Puppets

Over a decade's worth of classic albums that defied categorization. An appearance on Nirvana's classic 'MTV Unplugged' performance. A hit video on MTV. A gold certified album. An opening slot on a sold-out tour with the Stone Temple Pilots. By the end of 1994, it appeared as though the Meat Puppets were poised to become the success story of the '90s. However, what seemed like in the blink of an eye, the dream quickly turned into a nightmare. Too High to Die: Meet the Meat Puppets is the first-ever book to fully examine the entire career of this highly influential and respected band. Comprised of nearly 50 exclusive interviews (including band members past and present, friends and fans from other bands, etc.), you'll finally learn the real wild and wooly tale of the mighty Meat Puppets.

"It's a very strange, wonderful experience to read...I love the way it flows...a linear time capsule compendium of the band's many perspectives tied together so well. I feel like I've been hanging out in these scenes just yesterday." -Curt Kirkwood, Meat Puppets singer/guitarist

"It was moving to read, to see other people’s takes on it. I really dig the living f**k out of it. It’s cool as f**k." -Cris Kirkwood, Meat Puppets bassist

"Greg's retrospective just helps bring everything just that much more full circle. Well done, sir." -Derrick Bostrom, original Meat Puppets drummer

"Mr. Prato's 'Too High to Die' is an excellent book, that gets all the great rock n' rollers' perspectives on why they/we all love the Meat Puppets so much. I've read it 2 times from front to end, and I'm going on my 3rd read as we speak. Everything you ever needed or wanted to know about the Pups." -Shandon Sahm, current Meat Puppets drummer

"Greg Prato takes an in depth look into the deeply fried psychedelic scriptures of these most essential southwestern country-punk cowboys, leaving no desert stone unturned in telling the saga of the Kirkwood Bros luminescent journey, from the early days at SST to Nirvana and beyond. Weird scenes inside the goldmine, indeed..." -Lee Ranaldo, Sonic Youth guitarist

"I couldn't wait to use the bathroom, many times a day, so i could relive the past, good book..." -Jeff Pinkus, Butthole Surfers bassist

"The title of this book is a little deceptive, as it’s about far more than just the extraordinarily underrated underground rock band the Meat Puppets. It, like 'American Hardcore' and 'Our Band Could Be Your Life,' helps add to the mythos surrounding the formation of the American rock underground in the late 1970s, through the early 1990s." -Jeremiah Griffey,

"Prato has not only nailed down the story of the Puppets perfectly, but that whole SST Records crew who saw Punk as a wide open world of gelatinous freedom and not just a haircut." -Tony Rettman, Vice Magazine

"The very first official, definitive bio on The Meat Puppets ever written. Engaging, honest and intimate...and often just plain's a must read." -Shirley Pena, The Los Angeles Beat

"Interviewing dozens of key players, including the band members themselves as well as producers, other musicians, friends and record company people, the author stitches together an illuminating look at the mighty Meats." -Steven Rosen,

"Employing what seems like some massive interviews, Prato looks at the Meat Puppets by framing the book in a chronological starting from when the Kirkwood brothers were children and running through to the present, documenting the trials and tribulations of the band and their personal lives." -Bob Morgan,

"The new book, Too High to Die: Meet the Meat Puppets, is a comprehensive oral history of the band's career, assembled by Rolling Stone writer Greg Prato." -Rolling Stone

"'Too High To Die: Meet The Meat Puppets' is one of the most adventurous and ultimately satisfying literary journeys about rock ‘n’ roll that I’ve ever experienced. I’m really hoping that a film adaptation is in the works...." -The Impaler Speaks (
