Today, Last Night at the Viper Room: River Phoenix and the Hollywood He Left Behind hits book stores. The book was written by Rolling Stone contributor Gavin Edwards, and gives new insights into the young actor's life, the club scene that catered to so much of the young Hollywood talent and, of course, Phoenix's career -- including time spent on one of the most iconic films of the Eighties, Stand by Me, and of the film that would be both his crowning achievement and his personal downfall, My Own Private Idaho.
Check out these photos of his life in film and family.
