Most Likely to Die is a romp. With each poems 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 HorizonYou neednt give a toss about Keith Richards or his autobiography to love Hilary Sideriss 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 Richardss 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 LevitationWOW. 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 weve come to know and love. -- Ron McClure, BassistPublished by Poets Wear Prada, Hoboken, NJ
