Growing demand for rock memoirs
The Observer wrote at the weekend about the demand for rock memoirs and autobiographies. Keith Richards, Patti Smith, Steve Tyler and Sammy Hagar have all enjoyed success in recent times.
To be honest, I enjoyed the Bob Dylan Chronicles book a few years ago and have also read Anthony Kiedis’ Scar Tissue, about life in the Red Hot Chili Peppers.

If you do like rock star memoirs, then here’s a list of books signed by musicians. Lots of famous names, but who would buy a book signed by Donny Osmond?
