Long Live Rock

(Books, History, Music, Nonfiction) Permanent link

Books about rock stars are flooding the bestseller lists lately.  Back in November, there were four in the Top 10. 

Waging Heavy Peace by Neil Young

Who I Am by Pete Townshend

Rod by Rod Stewart

Bruce by Peter Carlin (about Bruce Springsteen, but you probably guessed that)

I've read excerpts of Townshend's and Stewart's books in Rolling Stone magazine.  Townshend really opens up and shares his thoughts and emotions in an artfully written, intellectual style.  I'm not that interested in Rod Stewart so I was surprised by how much I enjoyed his authorial voice and fun stories about his friendship with Elton John. 

If you are interested in rock history, we have all these books and many more.
