anyone could recommend. I'm at a loose end after reading 'Watchmen' (which is really really really good).
down to my local library and begin the ordering process. Anymore?
The Brian Wilson one - 'wouldn't it be nice' is excellent reading
although really biased due to the effects of his evil mentor Dr Landy who basically had complete control over him during the writing process and even wrote some bits
Even if you hate The Who this is a bloody funny book.
DeeDee Ramone's Auto-biog is a good, if often repellent, read. Cant remember the title though. Sorry :-/
Head On / Repossessed = the best
not a straight-up biog by any means, but an essential read.
Is entertaining simply by virtue of being so sycophantic and badly written.
At least it mentions Morrison's racist and homophobic tendancies.
Again, not a biog, and not really anything to do with music, but bloody great. It reads like a Nick Cave song turned into a novel...
The Nick Cave and Julian Cope ones would certainly tickle my trout. Thanks for all the other suggestions too. I'll save them for another day
