Stress became almost a daily activity for Bill, Dwight, Kevin and miscellaneous other friends who floated in and out of the still-amorphous band. Bruce Salmon, Mike Groner, Steve Fluke, John Terry, all had stints of varying length as members of Stress. Basically, all it took was showing up some afternoon to play at least once.

Written by Bill Hicks' lifelong friend, producer and co-creator Kevin Booth, this book offers the inside story on a unique talent. Hicks was only along for the ride for a tragically short time, yet left an indelible mark on comedy enthusiasts and free-thinkers everywhere. Bill Hicks: Agent of Evolution offers a rare fly-on-the-wall insight into the life of one of Britain's most loved US comedians. Adored in the UK for his unique style of savage, hilarious comedy, the one person who knew him inside and out tells of a man whose life was just as impassioned and off-the-wall as his comedy. Even back at High School, in Houston, Texas, Kevin was Bill's co-conspirator, as they sneaked out of Bill's strict Baptist home at night, and headed for the Comedy Workshop, where at the age of fourteen, Bill was going down a storm. They virtually shared every experience -- from magic mushrooms to girls, but it was their music and their vision of comedy, which bound them so closely together. Kevin produced, engineered and performed on, many of Bill's recordings, and it is largely due to him, that so much of Bill's comedy is readily available on CD and video.

I wanted to love this book. I admire Kevin Booth. But, whole pages of text are missing, there are many misspellings, like saying Bill was doing so and so in 1998! Obviously 1988, but, really! The book needs a strong overall edit and reissued with 100 pages less. I agree with the man who wrote that reading LOVE ALLTHE PEOPLE (letters, lyrics and words of BH), and the Cynthia True biography (which I thought was excellent) I first learned of Bill in 1989 when I was invited to his midnight recording of Dangerous at the Village Gate on Bleecker Street where I live. Booth doesn't write well, and gets an assist from the other writer, but overall the book is mess. It is a tepid cry for help and I feel Mr. Booth's pain. To lose such a character is uncommon because there was no one like Bill Hicks. He is missed terribly on the age of a president who spews so much garbage I can see Bill doing a concert about it all non stop. The great contribution this book DOES make is that it adds invaluable information about a character deeply loved, missed and we who carry his torch in the name of free speech, entertainment and awakening spiritual pursuit in the name of "the one true God whose name Is Love (BH)".

I agree with other reviewers that this is a choppy and disjointed volume that would have benefited from a good, professional edit. Frankly, it left me with more questions than answers. Nevertheless, I must recommend it to Bill Hicks fans, because it captures many previously-undocumented aspects of Hicks's life, which was itself choppy and disjointed. Bill departed this world with more questions than answers himself -- at a tragically early age. Clearly, he was a very difficult man to know, and even more difficult to understand. This book demonstrates that even his closest friends struggled, often in vain, to gain some measure of understanding of who he was and what he was looking for. Though he was the best informed and most articulate commentator of his generation, it is a shame that he wasn't allowed more time to pursue his quest for meaningful answers to the deeper questions.

Good Read For Hicks Fans. Very good. "I'm A Reader. There, I said it." Been reading for a LONG time and have become kind of picky; spoiled. However, I'm a Bill Hicks fan and enjoyed it very much.
Conjuril
A fantastic book. I've also read American Scream and enjoyed it but this book really brought Bill Hicks life into focus, warts and all. I highly recommend this to any Bill Hicks fan.
Vareyma
For fans of Hicks (or people hunting for Jones / Hicks conspiracy clues...), this is a sure hit. Great insight into the personality of a rebel comedian

I'm currently studying comedy for a writing project and this book is an indispensable source. If only Bill were here today...
Saberdragon
I expected the book to be good, but it was more interesting than I expected. It has stories from many different people who knew him personally. There are tons of great stories and varied points of view. It also introduced me to some great performers I hadn't heard before, like Ron Shock. In the book, Ron Shock's voice is my favorite.
A great book about a comic super star. Bill was way ahead of his time. Please buy this book and you will see what I mean. Thank you.
