Dear Boy - the biography of Keith Moon.

Best fiction book about music I've ever read is 'Espedair Street' - Iain Banks.
About an has been rock star, the book is told in flashbacks to when he and his band were famous.
Well worth a read...top book.

Incidentally, Espedair Street, the film rights for the book have been sold and Banks has been contracted to write the songs (he's a big fan of rock music).
I for one am looking forward to this, if it's done right it's gonna be superb.



On a side note, this to adidasss, plans for film versions of Complicity, The Wasp Factory and The Bridge are all underway.

Heavier than heaven-Charles C. Cross

The biography of Kurt Cobain. A look into the often psychotic mind of one of the greatest (IMO) artists in the last 50 years. As you read you realise his life wasn't that bad at all, but the way he dealt with it was.
