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.

I didn’t write the book to have the last word on KISS.”   Read an excerpt here.

Female rock bios don’t always have the same “oomph” as the ones from the guys.  They often seem a bit tame or trying too hard to prove themselves as reckless and raunchy as their male counterparts.  If there were two ladies who’s story will play as well as the guys, it’s the sisters Wilson. They don’t have to be overtly anything to sell books. They were trailblazers.  Women who found their way around Rock without any blueprint to follow.

You can preview the book here. Pre-order here and see some early book singing dates here.
