Some of my favorites are queens of noise about the runaways, Keith Richards autobiography, Belinda Carlyle of the go gos biography, and the magnus opus and best band history I’ve read so far is no one here gets out alive about Jim Morrison and the doors.
If you or anyone else can recommend any others it would be great!
Gary Numans "Praying to the Aliens" is pretty good
Neil Peart's (Rush) "Ghost Rider" is fantastic

I vaguely remember a story about Jim Morrison. He was drunk and crudely propositoning Jimi Hendrix at his concert.
This went on until Janis Joplin, tired of the spectacle, smashed a bottle of whisky over his head.
It sounds apocryphal, a certain wish fulfilment to have those three tragically doomed sixties legends all together. I'd love it if it was true though.
I'm sure David's book is immaculately researched and I heartily recommend it to anyone interested in that period, the New Romantics emerging after a time when bands who either were, or should have been, on medication dominated.
I like the quote by Paul McCartney, irritated by critics interpretation of John's song, which was something like "They say he meant this or that, no he didn't, and I should know, I was in the bloody room with him when he wrote it!"
>>Did you see the original and first spandau ballet?<<
Not that I recall, this is the first time I've heard of them.
My brother in law became mayor of Ampthill and ran the local electrical shop, he knew just about everybody,sadly he died last year, but my sister might know the individual band members, when I find a copy of the book I'll ask her.
My wife liked the "famous" Spandau Ballet, I remember we saw them in concert when Carol was heavily pregnant with our first born. Technically, it was the first time Octavia danced, jumping around inside!
