Misunderstood: The Brian Molko Story

Misunderstood looks behind the eyeliner to reveal the true story of one of the most notorious rock icons of the 21st century. Follow the reckless wild child turned devoted father as he replaces drug binges and erotic exploits with Buddhist meditation and kids' birthday parties. He's battled bipolar disorder, clinical depression, drug and alcohol addiction, loneliness and self-loathing to sell over ten million albums worldwide with the rock group Placebo. Combining punk rock anthems with designer dresses, the singer set out to prove he's far more than 'just another nancy boy.' He describes his music as both 'a transvestite on crystal meth' and 'cocktail hour at the mental hospital' - it's going to be a bumpy ride. Alongside quotes from the singer himself are exclusive interviews featuring Brian in the words of those who knew him best. Described as everything from a fallen angel to a brutal rock-star thug, this book looks beyond the well-worn 'drug crazed sex-dwarf' connotations to discover just why Brian Molko is so misunderstood.
