thread I am looking for recommendations.
I'm going through a heavy rock biography phase - Lemmy, Keith Richards, Nick Kent (Apathy for the Devil is an excellent title), Lionel Bart, Mick Fleetwood, Beastie Boys, Viv Albertine, John Lydon, Peter Hook, Bernard Sumner - and am about to finish the Freddie Mercury one. The Stephen Morris one is next up, but after that, are there any others the hive mind thinks I should read?

AQ - doing anything over the weekend?

Edit - 'heavy rock biography' doesn't mean biographies of heavy rockers, btw...
permalink I'm led to believe
the Joe Strummer one is good, but I haven't read it.

I'm sitting at an airport, flight's delayed. If I ever get home I'm going to sleep all weekend.
