He’s in upstate New York. There’s a good biography about those days, 70s Palace and Jamming fanzine, “Boy About Town”. You might be in it!

Yeah, that's a terrific book. I lent my copy to a chum of Pidster's and unsurprisingly I've never had it back.

I got halfway through Hook's Substance but gave up for some reason, so I'll have to give it another go.

Yeah they are... the book is all about the excess, of sex and drugs of New York, and then it get's to Vampire Week and it's just about how focused they were on being successful!

Touching from a distance by Ian Curtis' wife is another that I loved, and what the film Control was based on.

I think I might have done similar. Couldn't get into it at all.

The 2 part biography of Sinatra is excellent
Bruce Springsteens recent memoirs are great too.

Both perfect books to read whilst turning pink and pretending you are hiding out on the Costas after being one of the 3,000 people involved in the Brinks Mat robbery.

I enjoyed Ben Folds' autobiography A Dream About Lightning Bugs.

It definitely didn't take itself too seriously and he was quite refreshingly honest about the times he has been a dick, especially to the women in his life.

I really enjoyed reading Life by Keith Richards, and Ozzy by Ozzy Osbourne which was laugh out loud funny in parts.

I remember being very taken indeed with Up-Tight, the story of the Velevet Underground, when I was 18. But I was the kind of 18 year old who would be impressed by anything about the Velevet Underground. Little Richard, Quasar of Rock was the same.

David Cavanagh's My Magpie Eyes are Hungry for the Prize is good for the rise/failure of the indies through the 80s. I really like Lipstick Traces,but can see it would be a bit marmite. The Luke Haines books on Britpop are very entertaining, partly because he is so bitchy about everyone. David Stubbs' stuff on krautrock is good, and Simon Reynolds' Bring the Noise and Retromania. I've never really warmed to that big Bob Stanley book, although I dip into it from time to time.
