Default ?favorite music autobiography/biography?

well what have you? i would say my favorite is "cash". johnny cash may be classified as a country artist... but he was a ****ing rock star. a great song writer as well.

Off the top of my head.....

Dear Boy (Keith Moon) by Tony Fletcher
Give The Anarchist A Cigarette (Mick Farren) by Himself
Stoned (Early Stones) by Andrew Loog Oldham
Englands Dreaming (English Punk Movement) by Jon Savage
No Dogs , No Blacks , No Irish (Sex Pistols) by John Lydon
Get In The Van (Black Flag) by Henry Rollins
Touching From A Distance (Ian Curtis) by Deborah Curtis
My Magpie Eyes Are Hungry for the Prize (Creation Records / Oasis / Primal Scream / MBV) by David Cavanagh
Hip Priest (Mark E Smith / The Fall) by Simon Ford

And Mark E Smith's autobiography is due out next year

And a special mention to Showbusiness: The Diary of a Rock 'n' Roll Nobody by Mark Radcliffe because it's one of the funniest books i've ever read.

"I, Shithead" by Joey Shithead is the only one I've read.

And I didn't finish it yet.

Elliott Smith and the Big Nothing is really good, the Bob Dylan chronicles are amazing. I like reading music biographies, I don't like Hendrix but I gained a bunch of respect for him after reading his. I use to have respect for Jim Morrison after reading his i've decided he was just a dick. Cash is great.

Motley Crue's The Dirt was pretty good.
Marilyn Manson's was a disappointment.

Scar Tissue-Anthony Kiedis-brutally honest with no self pitying.

England's Hidden Reverse by David Keenan. It's about Current 93, Coil, and Nurse With Wound.
