Kitty's top 3 music books

There have been a lot of great rock and roll memoirs written, and a lot of lousy ones as well..Eric Clapton I'm looking at you!  Here are my top three favorite rock and roll memoirs.

1. Neil Young's autobiography Waging Heavy Peace is like taking a little trip thru Young's head. It's not in chronological order, doesn't give away any of his secrets to great songwriting or guitar playing...but is so entertaining! I could hear Neil's aging hippie voice in my head the whole time I was reading it.
 
2. Keith Richards Life. I'll admit I did skim over some of the stuff about open guitar tunings and illegal drug use. But I learned a lot about the Rolling Stones and what it takes to keep a band together for half a century.

3.CASH, the autobiography of Johnny Cash. The book which was released in the late 90's detailed a lot of stories I had never heard before. For example--he had to get armed guards to protect his home in Jamaican after his family was robbed there at gunpoint during Christmas dinner.
 
Honorable mention: Wonderful Tonight, by Patti Boyd; John by Cynthia Lennon; Bob Dylan Chronicles Volume 1

World's Worst iPod: Baltimora "Tarzan Boy"
If ever there was a song that screamed "'80s" this is it. There was a whole lotta love expressed for "Tarzan Boy" by Baltimora, even though a lot of people just remembered it as the Oh-oh-oh song! Baltimora was a band from Italy, and this song was...

Discover & Download: Kodaline "Ready"
From Kodaline.com: That Kodaline are ready to release their second album has still to sink in with the men who made it. The Dublin quartet didn't plan to follow up last year's 350,000 selling 'In A Perfect World' so promptly. In...
