message 1: by Jerry (new)

Jerry Zike Unfortunately, I can not vote for any of the selections, having read none of them. The closest experience I have is reading (and re-reading) "I Me Mine", a collection of interviews, conversations, and memories, of and by George Harrison. This collection, which includes lyrics and discussions, gives insight into the spirit that moved within George, and helps explain his enormous impact upon me and countless others. I highly recommend this collection.


message 2: by Julie (new)

Julie Isen I really think "Perfect From Now On: How Indie Rock Saved My Life" by John Sellers should be on this list. I would have voted for that one.

Julie, this is a year after you posted, but FYI you can add any book you want to the list.


message 5: by Stephanie (new)

Stephanie I don't believe that I've read any of the books on this list. But I'm a big fan of the 1001 series.


Themis-Athena (Does not and never will own a Kindle) Deleted High Fidelity: fiction. (Maybe to a certain extent a roman à clef, but nevertheless a novel.)


message 10: by Emily (new)

Emily I'm looking for a book my friend read, please help! It's about the life of a roadie who works for an American band in about the 2000s or 90s. Can't remember the band or the author!

Look in Amazon under Books and type in the words "band" and "roadie" in the Search area. A bunch of books will show up that may be what you are looking for. Good luck!
