Memoir Suite

Rock & roll books from Austin to Beijing

BookPeople hummed warm and quiet last Thursday night, readers in every corner scanning the printed page rather than their phones. A page and a half of Ace Frehley's new autobiography, No Regrets, convinced me to plunk down $26 to relive my youth in the Kiss Army. I'll let you know how that turns out, but in the meantime, here's a cache of rock & roll memoirs, poster books, and reportage to get your favorite Bad Santa through the next lean months of music industry hibernation.
