Fall to Pieces: A Memoir of Drugs, Rock 'n' Roll, and Mental Illness (Paperback)
In Stock at Our Distributor - Usually Ships in 1-5 days
In March 2007, twenty-four hours after Mary Weiland dragged her husband Scotts pricey rock-star wardrobe onto their driveway and torched it, she was arrested and locked up in a mental hospital.
To the outside world, Weiland had led what seemed to be an enviable life. A successful international model in the nineties, she married her longtime sweetheart, Scott Weiland of Stone Temple Pilots and Velvet Revolver, in 2000. Mary was the sane one, went the story; it was the tempestuous, unpredictable Scott who was crazy. But the truth was somewhere in between.
With refreshing candor, innate comic timing, and earned wisdom, Weiland chronicles her quest to come to grips with the addictions that could have killed her, and to understand and manage her bipolar disorder. Fall to Pieces is a wild ride into the dark and back into the light.
