Hellraisers: The Life and Inhebriated Times of Richard Burton, Richard Harris, Peter O'Toole and Oliver Reed.
By Robert Sellers

It is the single greatest combined drunken biography you will ever read. Upon buying it I thought it might be a combined bio and touch on other things, then every now and then say "They got drunk!" But no. It is chock full of drinking stories from the three greatest Brit actors of their day.


Great pictures, AMAZING stories, and hilarious as all fuck. All written in a very British "I don't give a fuck what you think" way. Highly recomended.

If indeed I do not browse this, I'm hurtin' as bad as Sir Richard Burton,
Passed out behind the curtain,
Spurtin' n' hershey squirtin'.



Good reading then atop my royal throne Ferguson 5 g.p.f. pre-ban toilet?

Oliver Reed has been one of my icons since I was a kid, enchanted and impressed forever by his part in Oliver. Man, what a part! And then his final act in the movie Gladiator. Read his bio, and go to youtube to see his drunken antics. What a great drinkin' buddy he must have been.

He said book. I got so excited, I had to pour another bourbon. Other little girls slept with teddy bears. I slept with books.
