Randi (The Artist Formerly known as Guitar Chick) NEON ANGEL!


Barbara Charley I just LOVE biographies of musicians (dead or alive)!!!


message 3: by Sarah Beth (new)

Sarah Beth Breck @Barbara Charley...So do I. I despise fiction. It's so cool to read about a musician and his life and then listen to his music with the knowledge you have after reading the biography...

"When you know someone's life story everything in their life suddenly makes sense"...unknown


message 4: by Donna (new)

Donna Davis Great idea for a list. But what is Johnny Cash doing here? He sure wasn't a rocker, although given the subscript, I am reluctant to just go in and zap the title. Antoine? What do you think?


message 5: by Jonas (new)

Jonas Quarry Journey Into Beatledom is a great new take on The Beatles songs in the tradition of iconic Rock critic Richard Meltzer, which tells the band's story through their lyrics and songbook.


message 6: by Chris (new)

Chris What about Marvin Gaye, Aretha Franklin and Sam Cooke?
