Your top five (or ten) favorite music books.
Kind of an updated version of an earlier thread because times and tastes change.
What are your all-time top 5 (or 10) favorite music books and/or biographies?
It's super hard for me to go with just 10 but as of now my top 10 are:
Pete Townshend, Who I Am
My current favorite. I devoured this one!
Michael Azarrad, Our Band Could Be Your Life
An essential edition among my music books.
Keith Richards, Life
A must read!
John Lydon, Anger is An Energy
Inspiring and motivating! No bullshit, no lies.
John Lydon, Rotten
Excellent stories of changing times.
Kris Needs, Dream Baby Dream, Suicide, a New York Story
Excellent in every way. A strong glimpse of early 70's NYC and an incredible musical duo.
John Densmore, Riders of the Storm
Loved it! Doors Unhinged is really good to and I got John to sign my copy. Sweet guy, too.
Neil Young, Waging Heavy Peace
Marvelous though a bit scattered (a great song!). Neil's the real deal.
Bob Meir, Trouble Boys, The True Story of the Replacements
An excellent book about one of my all-time favorite bands that I found rather disturbing.
Keith Morris, My Damage
As real as it gets. And what a cool guy. Got to meet him briefly and bet my copy signed.
I wanted to add a Henry Rollins title since I have, and have read, 33 of them, but Henry is about way more than just music.
