Now the uni workload has gone down, was just wandering if anyone has any suggestions for any decent music autobiographies?

Last one i read was Ronnie Wood's which was excellent. Currently looking at getting another and was looking at Clapton's and Nikki Sixx diaries.

Wholeheartedly recommend Keith Moon's "Dear Boy" autobiography. Fascinating, hilarious and tragic all in equal measures.

'A bit of a Blur' by Alex James was a good read. I'm not a Blur fan but really enjoyed the book.

 

I've seen a lot of good reviews of Clapton's book.

 

I see on Amazon that Kerry Katona's got six books out - they may keep entertained over Xmas...or maybe not.

"Tainted Life" by Marc Almond

"Shout" by Philip Norman

"Rotten:No Dogs, No Irish, No Blacks" by John Lydon

"Please Kill Me" by Legs McNeil and Gillian McCain

"Margrave of the Marshes" by John Peel/Sheila Ravenscroft

"Touching From A Distance" Deborah Curtis

 

How's that for starters?

'Touching from a distance' is a good shout. But you kind of need to like/known something about Joy Division for that.

 

'White line fever' by Lemy on the other hand is just one of the funniest books i've read, even if you have no interest in the music or band.

 

If you're willing to move away from music then Micheal J Fox's book is exceptional and his follow up should be available some time in 2009. Alan Alda is also a great writer, he has two books (I've not got the second yet) even if you're not a MASH fan.

 

I should be able to think of more. I'll be back...
