From legendary singer/songwriter Steve Earle comes the fascinating memoir he swore he'd never write.

I CAN'T REMEMBER IF WE SAID GOODBYE

Steve Earle's entirely self-written memoir is a literary work in three acts. It opens with Steve dropping out of school and quitting a construction job, and meeting the troubled, genius musician Townes Van Zandt, with whom he embarks on a very complicated lifelong friendship. Steve's memoir will delve deeply into his heroes and what they meant to him, from Guy Clark and Willie and Waylon, to Steve's uncle who gave him his first guitar as well as his first shot of dope. It will take readers into the heart of the singular, dynamic and fascinating Texas music scene in the 60s and 70s, through the pain and desperation of Steve's drug addiction and, finally, to the grace of recovery through the Twelve Steps. Unlike many musicians penning memoirs, Earle is a genuine and talented writer who has authored a collection of short stories and a beautiful, haunting novel. This book, the one his fans want, brings that same lyrical prose to Steve's own incredible life, from the exhilarating highs to the crushing lows and back again--showing that recovery is possible for even the hardest of cases.
