Semi OT: Biographies.
Posted by: JumpingKentFlash ()
Date: June 25, 2023 23:49

I was never a big reader, except when it comes to historical events of the last 150 years and especially biographies. I love biographies. Bill German’s book is one of my favorites for sure, and I’ve always loved a book called The Death of WCW (about American wrestling). Recently I’ve discovered Tom Wilson’s book The Masked Man. He’s the guy who played Biff in Back To The Future. Extremely interesting stuff.

I guess I wanted to ask if any of you guys have any recommendations? Biographies especially.

Too many to list

But the most memorable to me is an intro about Mao - responsible for 55 million deaths, more than anyone … absolutely a story of power

Sorry I can’t recall exact book

1.Clothes, Clothes, Clothes. Music, Music, Music. Boys, Boys, Boys. By Viv Albertine, (ISBN: 8601404198144)

No Stones content, but London, life, and music scene, 60s 70s, recommended.
“Anyone who writes an autobiography is either a twat or broke. I’m a bit of both.”

And the 2nd book

2.To Throw Away Unopened: A Memoir by Viv Albertine, (ISBN: 9780571326211)
Another gem, best read in release order

Are you saying that there's a Stones' book that has an intro that all about Mao?

Intriguing!
