33 Revolutions Per Page

Around Christmas, Ace Frehley's Kiss makeup caught my eye at BookPeople – just as we went to press with our semiannual rock & roll books roundup ("Memoir Suite," Dec. 16, 2011). That book review written, I'm setting my sights on Gregg Allman's new tell-all for the fall. Two books a year? That's all my live music scheduling allows. As for you, pick one – summer and Barton Springs beckon.
