I usually buy a book or two over Xmas to read and this year I was wondering if anyone had some recommendations? I've got loads of stuff on the Chili Peppers so I'm not looking at that. Cheers!

Cash, by Johnny Cash. The Man in Black's autobiography.

A Day in the Life: The Music and Artistry of the Beatles, by Mark Hertsgaard. Detailed breakdown of the method and recording process of the Beatles. Maybe too geeky for some, but I loved it.

Hendrix: Setting the Record Straight, by John McDermott with Eddie Kramer. Well, it's a book about Jimi Hendrix, innit? Good read though, seems legit, have at least consulted people who were there ;)

That'll do, someone else can wade in with suggestions.

Ended up buying 'The Dirt', a Motley Crue biography and Duff McKagan's auto biography. The Dirt was very good, just what I wanted to read about - rock n' roll when it was real! Duff's book was decent as well although I do think he did miss out a lot of stuff on purpose...

You should check out Rex's autobiog, that's quite amusing. It takes him less than a page to slag off Vinnie Paul and he continues in that vein throughout!

Well Rex makes out that Vinnie Paul is a complete FlowerpotFlowerpotFlowerpotFlowerpot but that's just his side of the story. I'm not so familiar with Pantera history to know the other side of the argument....
