  •  Ever read Keith Richard's memoir? (4+ / 0-)

    It's heavy on composing music and writing songs, but it's a good read, if you're a fan.
    Really enjoyed it because he explained how the Stones became the anti-Beatles and how Richards, himself, started several rumors to promote the bad boy image.

    He's actually a family man.

    The one book by a musician that gave me pause, was Clapton's.
    Am a huge Clapton fan, but after reading his book, not so much.
    I'm over it now and I guess you've got to give the man credit for being so very honest and it does seem as though he's cleaned up his life.

    Clapton's book starts off being written by a ghost writer, and you can tell when Clapton fired the guy and then wrote the rest of the book himself.

    I think the biggest thing learned from Clapton's book was how very young he was when he hit it big and he wasn't quite developed yet, or mature enough to hit it big and have so much money and adoring fans and women fawning over him.
    Arrested Development?

    He does do those concerts - Crossroads - for charity, so you've got to give him that.

    But, as I've said, his autobiography is disturbing, yet you've got to hand it to him for being so honest.

    I still love his music.

    All we need is LOVE!
