    who's Auto Biogs you read ??

    i have only read 1 ..

    Scar Tissue, A.Kiedis (singer from the chillis)

    quality book , some of it abit far fetched ... but its defiantely worth a read .. one of the few books ive actually finished .. 100% recommended .. even if its too learn a few things about drugs or insight into song meanings , and how / when he writes them etc ..



    anyone recommend any ? ... im tempted to read Russel Brands, but it means sitting on the train with a book called - My Booky Wook

    Howard Marks, he's had interesting life so far but I found the book got a bit dull towards the end. Started David Attenboroughs and enjoying that so far, I did a media course so it's good to learn about one of the pioneers.

    Haven't seen any more autobiographys that I can be bothered to read, I find it hard to care enough about celebrities lives

    hahah read Eminem's when I was a younger. I read a fucking good Jimi Hendrix biography called A Room Full Of Mirrors, read Anthony Kiedis's that was good - also read Johnny Wilkinson's (i wouldn't reccomend it)

    Recollections of a Racketeer - Patrick Lane
    http://www.amazon.co.uk/Recollectio...=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1275174167&sr=8-1
    Has the Howard Marks seal of approval, dead funny and interesting.

    Stop the Ride I Want to Get Off - Dave Courtney
    http://www.amazon.co.uk/Stop-Ride-W...=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1275174252&sr=1-1
    Everything he says may be pure bollocks but interesting book, its huge as well so will keep you busy.

    A Few Kind Words and A Loaded Gun - Noel "Razor" Smith
    http://www.amazon.co.uk/Few-Kind-Wo...=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1275174396&sr=1-1
    Another one that could be all bollocks, but another funny on.

    'Fuzz One' by Vincent Fedorchek

    Is the autiobiography of one of the pioneering New York graff writers, of the Ebony Dukes and the Fantastic Partners. As well as his life it acts as a kind of graff history and some really sick old pictures. That kid went through some crazy shit when he was young! Well worth a read.

    Motley Crue - the dirt

    im not too keen on motley crues music but my dad does so has the book and it is one of the best books i have read, so would highly recommend this. Filled with stories about there lifes and touring, lots of crazy drug stories and interesting stuff. Like ozzy osbourne snorting a line of ants and the singer (Vince neil) burning down a circket pavillion or summit along them lines with sylvester stallone

    Also read Scar Tissue, great read.......

    Forgot his name (will look at dinner) but i read an autobiography of a guy from Manc who got caught smuggling Heroin through Thailand and spent 15 years in a Thai prison, truly awful things goin on........

    Chopper books are always a good read, also read the Cass book, but couldnt get into it.....think it was because i used to live next to Jermaine Pennant in Notts and his Dad always boasted about being related to him.........
