Right now I just started Steve Parish's book My life on the road with the Grateful Dead. I've recently finished Bob Dylans Chronicles prt 1 and Keith Richards Life and Confessions of a Deadhead by The Starburst Commander.

Steve Parish's book was a great read. So was Bob Dylans Chronicles part I. I love the part where hes talking about how down he was the first time he was meeting the Dead for a rehearsal. But he chilled out with the guys and had a drink and then took a walk to clear his head. And he ended up in this Jazz club watching these old guys wail out. And then went back to the rehearsal and he was in a much better space. I think he said something to the effect of maybe it was something they put in my drink when he first got there or just the positive vibe he got from the guys but he was just in a generally better place creatively.But he IMHO comes off cranky allot of the time. If I remember correctly. I read it a few years ago and haven't read it again. You def get some great insight into the inner workings of the band's dynamic. O.K Book report over.

Finishing Life by Keith Richards. I'm savoring it. I've been a Stones freak since I was a kid and this book is so well done it gives you a sense of what it might be like to hang out with him.

i just read "Strangers too the system" a profile of homeless people in NY right after the 9-11 thing. from crusty punks with face tats, too old drunks, to young drunks, and all their stories. very fast and fun read, though it may sound depressing. cant remember the author but it was published by Curbside Press.
anything by Tom Robbins is the shiznit.
