Here’s three books of interest.  First, the new and incredible Rick James memoir Glow just hit the shelves.  It’s a bit eerie to read a posthumously published memoir, but also incredible to relive James’ story in his own words. Read an excerpt here.

A book we’ve enjoyed lately is Diehards by Erin Feinberg, a cool collection of photos taken from the unique perspective of the fans.  Some of the audiences included in the book are fans of U2, Metallica, Foo Fighters and The Flaming Lips. The book also features original essays from Bruce Springsteen and Neil Peart.

Finally, Lita Ford announced that her book Living Like A Runaway will be out on November 11th. Ford has made several recent appearances with Cherie Currie, so it will be interesting to see her take on her time in The Runaways. Find Lita on Facebook.

Rock Book Show Interview: Nikki Van Noy “What Would You Say: Dave Matthews Band 20 Years On The Road”

Posted by on Jun.21, 2011, under Current Shows No Comments

This is the book Dave Matthews Band fans have been waiting for, a comprehensive look at their beloved band’s 20 year career.  But, the story of the DMB’s success wouldn’t be complete without including the fans who are so integral to their success.

Nikki Van Noy is a writer (and fan!) who covers the phenomenon of DMB during the summer tours of 2009 and 2010.  The book includes exclusive interviews and insight from the band, and the fans who were there from the beginning in Charlottesville, Virginia.

For some people, being a fan of Dave Matthews isn’t just about the music, it’s a way of life,  and Nikki gives us a backstage pass to it all.
