Top Ten Books and Music

Posted February 16, 2016 by Grace @ Rebel Mommy Book Blog in Top Ten Tuesday / 63 Comments


Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by The Broke and The Bookish.
his week is about music and book pairings and such. I suck at that so I thought maybe I would do the top ten (ok ok eleven) memoirs and biographies and such from various rock figures. Some I still need to read but I have heard good thoughts about all. You know I love a memoir!!


Have you read any rock memoirs? Any favorites? Any you wish were written?

  1. Great topic! I haven’t read too many rock memoirs but I was tempted to read Billy Idol’s. I bet that would be interesting and I love his stuff. Motley Crue and Chrissi Hynde would be interesting…

  2. I LOVE this topic! I read memoirs/biographies of my favorite artists, so I’ve read many of Kurt Cobain, John Lennon, and I’ve only read one of Roger Waters. I’d like to someday read a Janis Joplin memoir/biography.

    Since you enjoy memoirs, have you read any of your favorite celebs in general? I’ve read Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, Felicia Day, Nick Offerman, and Drew Barrymore. They were all very good, but I think WILDFLOWER, Drew Barrymores memoir was the best. I love her.

    Awesome topic, Grace! Happy Tuesday!

  3. I can’t remember the name but I read one about Pat Benetar years ago and really liked it. I also read one by Ice-T which was really interesting as well and not so much about rap as about his life growing u

  4. I’ve read a bunch of Kurt Cobain/Nirvana bios, but my all-time favorite rock memoir is Motley Crue’s THE DIRT, and the fact that you have it up there makes me want to read all these others!

  5. Love your spin on this week’s topic, Grace! 🙂 I haven’t read too many rock memoirs but there have been a couple that come to mind. Neon Angel by Cherie Currie – it covered a lot more than her time in the Runaways but that was the bulk of it. And In the Pleasure Groove by John Taylor. I was a *huge* Duran fan in the 80’s and it was interesting to learn what his life was like at the time… and after.

  6. I read Sara Barielles’s memoir a while back. It wasn’t too good. She’s a big celeb name-dropper. Ive been dying to see Drew Barrymore’s Wildflower, Kim Gordon & Carrie Brownstein’s, though!

  7. I read Anthony Kiedis from the Red Hot Chilli Peppers book, I also rather randomly have read the book by the guitar roadie for Coldplay which was really good.

    When the Osbournes was big on MTV I read Ozzy’s book and for some reason followed up with the story of Fleetwood Mac.

    I’d like to read Kim Gordon’s book, I loved that genre of music when I was younger (I still do).

  8. I love music bios and have read 3 of the ones listed at the top (Dylan’s Chronicles, Keith Richards, Motley Crue). They’re all really good. Highly recommend Brian Wilson’s Wouldn’t It Be Nice, amazing book. Lots of great books out there about the Beatles and John Lennon. I’ve heard Patti Smith’s is worth reading, I should definitely check that one out.
