There's a chapter about Frank living there for 4 months.
Lots of stories of others too (Byrds, CSN, Joni Mitchell, etc...)
An era when there was no Rap or Hip-Hop
:lol:

from page 19

Quote:
By my junior year in high school, strange new vices had risen from out of the murk to pull me under. I exchanged my textbooks for Mothers of Invention albums. I grew my hair down to my ass and attended classes on an infrequent basis. I exchanged my loner personage to join up with a small band of brooding hooligans. I spent most of my time swallowing or inhaling every type of illegal substance they would pass me. Needless to say, my two-year run on the honor roll dissolved in one glorious heap of incompletes and lazy failures.

It's a shitty book, but it has a happy ending...

Living is a daily hell in Kaboul, caused by religious fanaticism used by the Taliban.
They killed laughter, they killed joy, they killed life.

A short book (150 pages) but quite enough to get the idea...

22 of the greatest books about rock'n'roll ever written
By Classic Rock 16 hours ago

In search of some quality reading material? Look no further than our guide to some of the best ever rock’n’roll books

Image

You’re heading off on holiday and you want something to read that will absorb and entertain you. You love your rock, but don’t want to read some shit that a pissed idiot in an AC/DC T-shirt (who was mates with one of the band’s ex-girlfriend’s uncles) could’ve written.

So what do you turn to? Here’s the thing: a lot of good books about rock have been written, from autobiographies to era studies, lyrics compendiums and beyond. We’ve crunched the best of them into this prize selection, including popular classics and newer and/or lesser-known gems.
