Anthony Bourdain: Junk, Romance, and a Lust for Life
Anthony Bourdain had a lust for life. He went all in on adventure, indulgence, food, romance – including the romance of a heroin addiction that he chased through the restaurant kitchens and grimy rock clubs of 1980s Manhattan. For years he was a struggling cook and writer, but his first book, published when he was 43 years old, was an overnight success. He parlayed success as a writer into success as a TV host, traveling all over the world, dining with rockstars, presidents, and everyone in between. He dodged bullets, the real and the figurative kind, the figurative kind from the tabloids having the most impact. But in the end, he was unable to dodge the truth, which to a romantic like Anthony Bourdain, was hard to come to terms with.

The Clash: Guns on the Roof, Chased out of Kingston, and a Riot in Times Square

The Clash: Guns on the Roof, Chased out of Kingston, and a Riot in Times Square
The Clash were once described by their manager as a news organization first, and entertainers second. They were, as their record label put it, “the only band that matters.” They were on the front lines at the dawn of punk rock, but were adventurous enough to quickly branch out into reggae, dub, and hip-hop. They were arrested on suspicion of terrorism in London. Chased out of Jamaica by local drug lords armed to the teeth. Caused a near riot in Times Square when their week-long takeover of a disco was shut down by the city after night one. For Joe Strummer, one of the Clash’s two songwriters and the group’s political avatar, all this insanity came with the territory when you were disrupting the status quo. But the weight of it all, the importance of the only band that mattered, became too much to bear, and at the height of the band’s commercial success…their frontman went missing.

Stu Sutcliffe (Beatles Chapter 9): Reeperbahn Debauchery, Gangs, and the Birth of the Cool

Stu Sutcliffe (Beatles Chapter 9): Reeperbahn Debauchery, Gangs, and the Birth of the Cool
Stu Sutcliffe was rock 'n roll's original Sid Vicious. Just like Sid, Stu was a bass player. But also like Sid, Stu could hardly play. What he did have in spades was style and attitude. He was by far the coolest looking member of the Beatles, back when the Fab Four were still a fab five (minus Ringo). These were the days of the Reeperbahn in Hamburg, Germany, a violent landscape of gangsters, thugs, prostitutes, and vindictive club owners who ran their depraved joints with an iron fist. It was here that the Beatles played marathon sets at some of Hamburg’s rowdiest bars. It was where they first popped pills, were arrested for the first time – but also where they learned how to be great, and how to be effortlessly cool. That last one thanks to their bass player Stu Sutcliffe, whose days on this earth were finite, but whose impact would live forever.
