Rock n Roll Biographies.

So I'm interested in suggestions for summer reading. I would love any great rock n roll books. I have already read U2 At the End of the World. What else is good?

Learning How To Die by Greg Kot is supposed to be excellent, especially for Wilco fans.

Haven't read it myself, but I am considering it.

I'm about to start reading "Everything (A Book About Manic Street Preachers)." I've thumbed through and read bits and pieces already, and it looks fantastic. It was recommended to me by someone who isn't really familiar with the band's music, so I think that bodes well, seeing as how I own quite a few of their albums and love their music.

i rather enjoyed michael azzerad's nirvana bio "come as you are." marilyn manson's bio "the long hard road out of hell" is pretty interesting too, a whole lot of celebrity dirt on trent reznor, courtney love, & billy corgan, if you're into that sort of thing (and who isn't?) i'd also recommend michael azzerad's "our band could be your life" which depicts the 80s indie scene, with each chapter devoted to a seminal band (black flag, the replacements, fugazi) while i loathe the band, i have heard that the motley crue bio is also pretty interesting.

Oh, maybe Shakey the Neil Young bio. I've been told it's really good. I've been a slacker lately on the reading front but this one's on my list.

The original question was for a book; not a leaflet.

Killing Bono by Neil McCormick


Not, as the title suggests, about Bono lol


Excellent, insightful autobiography

According to the Rolling Stones by the Rolling Stones

Elvis and Me by Priscilla Presley was really good if you are at all interested in Elvis and/or Priscilla and the lifestyle he/they led..a lot of personal things in there that were fun and interesting to read.

I forget the title but Brian Wilson's autobiography was good if you are a Beach Boys fan

I have heard that the Motley Crue book is good too, I haven't gotten around to it yet. I would also like to read TommyLand by Tommy Lee.

Rebel Heart by Bebe Buell was an interesting read (she was invovled in the whole 70's-80's rock scene, and slept with almost every big musician you can name. some funny stories in there), although I'm not sure I believe some of the things she said..
