So how is it that the Rockstar completely ignores the fact that his story about the Chicago parade has been brought into question and, dare I say it, disproven ? Is this an admission that, just maybe, he has stretched the tale just that little bit too far and his memory is not as accurate as he thought ? Or maybe it was the facts were inaccurate all along and maybe he was simply confusing Chicago for Kokomo. Or maybe even Brian for Dennis. Or day for night. After all, would anyone go so far as to CHECK such recollections from years gone by ?  Does this mean a hasty rewrite for the entire volume ? Will all the grey areas that, maybe, a certain amount of artistic licensing were utilised in be removed completely ? Heaven forbid... but how many chapters will that result in removing ? How many pages of accurate facts will that leave us with ??

The problem with truth is that it's a very variable concept - your truth may be my cause of great hilarity, and vice versa - and a highly perishable commodity. "What is truth, said jesting Pilate, and would not stay for an answer".

 Smiley Smiley Good Morning Smile Readers,  To start with... I am now posting on weekends and at what times I choose.  There are a couple things I will make clear. First... as I have stated... my book "Wipeout" is a memoir... not a documentary!  As much as I enjoy making the fact checkers crazy... running around proving and disproving "FACTS!"  So, when it comes to certain "facts" I do take some artistic license.  Now, in regards to the Parade... It happened... and it was shocking!  Shocking for two reasons:  One was because I had never seen a violent side of Brian before. Except for the occasional verbal outburst, by Brian, which was always in relation to Mike, the only non-passive behavior I ever witnessed from Brian was on y directed towards Mike!  The "Parade Incident" took place... with the "Clown"... and it was shocking to me as well as to Stan.  We could not believe our own eyes... but "IT HAPPENED"!!! Why a poor innocent unsuspecting clown?  You'll have to ask Brian.  So here is the admission...    "I am not certain it was in Chicago."  It did occur after Brian threw up on the shoes of some poor guy named Ralph.  The attack on a "Clown" in a "Parade" may have been in Des Moines?  The IMPORTANT FACT IS THAT IT HAPPENED! And when Brian was asked by Stan, "What was that about?" Brian's answer was, "I thought it was Mike!" To which Stan then said... "MY brother Mike?" Again, Brian confirmed... "He looked like Mike to me!"  However, MORE IMPORTANTLY, Brian did attack Mike with a ferocious "Surfer Stomp" backstage at a concert in plain view of dozens of witnesses!  Brian was not trying to be discrete!  He was making a STATEMENT!  Now, once again... my favorite part is coming up in the next segment.  You won't want to miss it!  Smiley Smiley

 Smiley Smiley It's "FACTION"... A "Memoir" based on fact!  It's not a chronological documentary... how boring!  I can surely see that you and "the angry 13" are nowhere near bored!  Nor are THE EVER-LOVING SMILE READERS... (not to be confused with the haters} who have me up to... (by the end of the day)... OVER... 70,000 reads... since December 9th... a span of not even 3 months!  LOL LOL

 Cheesy Rocky, there are actual agreed-upon definitions for literary genres. Memoirs are meant to be factual. If it is not factual, it is fiction. So a fictionalized history 'based on fact' is fiction. That's how your book will be classified if it does not pass fact-checking.

Would Stan remember? Of course nobody has total recall, Mike and Brian have disagreed on where and when they wrote certain songs. Crosby, Stills and Nash can't agree on where they first sang together. I don't know where I put my car keys....

 Smiley YES... ALWAYS JUICED juice... Stan would  REMEMBER... whether he will REVEAL the TRUTH is anybody's GUESS!  If he can remember anything? Smokin'  Stan once told his brother Stephen that he is a "LIAR"... that he has always been a "Liar"!  But because Stan's basketball career... or lack of one... was such a "BUST" he CLUTCHES onto any modicum of celebrity... which is his brother  mike's  "CLOWN CAREER"  LOL LOL  Which I'm sure Brian will agree with me on... Brian gave "Mike" the dubious distinction as "THE CLOWN" that day in the PARADE!  
     Let's not forget "Man vs Clown"  (Why I Hate Mike Love)... It's been around a long time... I wonder how many reads it has?  Shocked Shocked  (fact checkers go to work)

 Smiley Smiley So it's not only mike-y that your in love with "doe boy" ask Stan how many splinters he picked out of his A*ss... (you two have that thing in common)  He never started a single game... for a 1st round pick... that is the definition of a "BUST"! Smiley Smiley  I did over 30 National Commercials... and then I won "The International Camel Man" job!  I made over TWO MILLION DOLLARS in My MODELING CAREER ... Stan signed ONE contract for a half mil... and they hated paying him it for picking splinters and smoking. LOL Smokin

And the "clown" episode...

Ignoring the fact that we've been told it was Chicago, no if ands or buts, the band did play Des Moines, in 1977 at the Iowa State Fair on August 22nd. Now, to kick off the 11 day State Fair, there's a parade from downtown to the fairgrounds: it's the state's biggest parade, so of course, there will be clowns. So far, so good.

However...

The 1977 fair kicked off on August 18th and ran until the 28th, thus the 22nd didn't coincide with the opening parade. So, no clown asskicking, which would most certainly have been reported in any case at such a prestigious and newsworthy event had it occurred on any day.

Daro redux ?

There is a genre called Creative Nonfiction (CNF), under which memoir fits. There are debates in the field about how factual CNF has to be.  With memoir, it's understood that memory has its limits and "truth" is not always "fact."  Using "I" pretty much indicates to anyone it's to the best memory of the writer.  You can't make stuff up, but it's not the same as journalism or history.

When in doubt, however, leave out dates or places unless you have notebooks or journals from the time. Memory is a tricky thing.

Ok, back to popcorn.

ETA: At that time, actually, it probably wouldn't have gotten reported.  Celebrity stuff wasn't that big a deal.

And yet, you still had to stoop to being a male prostitute? That ain't good, Rock.

I'm confused. Are people genuinely taken with this guy, or is this sort of like everyone is joking around, and Rocky Raccoon isn't in on the joke? Reminds me of the Daro situation a bit. A dirtbag who shows up and wants to tell his story, and a lot of it seems to be BS, or half-truths. And no amount of "quotation marks" and  Smiley Smiley LOL LOL can turn a turd into a diamond.

Obviously memoirs are subject to perspective, but what is reported in a memoir as hard fact, i.e. dates, places, are meant to be correct in a nonfiction category. This is not debated. And local news would certainly report an assault on a parade clown, celebrity assailant or not. Have none of you ever read your local newspaper?
