Eels book in “brilliant” shocker

Things The Grandchildren Should Know by Mark Oliver Everett (E from Eels) is one of the best things I’ve read in ages.  Some of it’s very, very sad. And some of it is like this:

During the ‘with strings’ tour one night in Germany, a concertgoer calls out “YOU ARE BORING!” between songs. He’s German and wants to rock. We play him a Scorpions riff, but it isn’t enough.
