Johnny B thinks he has it all: glamour, celebrity friends, free booze, lots of coke, and a roomful of strippers every night. But Johnny B is a perfect example of what happens to a human being when he falls through the hole in the ozone. The story opens in 2008 when Johnny crashes in pain to the floor of the club where he works. Rushed to the hospital, he needs immediate surgery. As soon as the booze and drugs clear out of his blood, that is. Flash back to the mid-nineties. Johnny is the hottest DJ is L.A., working at the premiere strip club of the decade, CG's. He interacts with Hollywood's A-list actors and rock stars. He's friends with gangstas, bikers, dealers, and hustlers. He's buddy, daddy, and mommy to an unpredictable group of beautiful strippers, keeping the club running and helping the girls with everything from boyfriend problems to addictions.

Charlene's Review:

DJ Chronicles is an insider look behind the scenes of a renowned strip club. Johnny B enjoys his life on the edge. With all the money, women and drugs he can handle, he lives fast and plays hard. The book begins with Johnny B in the hospital, and flashes back over his wild and crazy lifestyle. We watch his rise to the top, his personal triumph as he becomes a father, and we watch his decline from years of overindulgence.

This is definitely an edgy book. Mr. Foreman holds nothing back as we watch how celebrities live and how they self-destruct. I struggled a bit with the seemingly endless repetitive stories of sex, drugs, and rock n roll, but admittedly, this is a tell-all book and he tells it like it is. It reminded me of a train wreck, where you know what's going to happen, but you just have to continue reading because you have to see it for yourself. My favorite part of the book was actually the last paragraph; the only part of the book that I didn't see coming.
