Having just noticed that the initiator of the latest "book" thread left the site taking the discussion with him, it's my turn again to revive it; being too important a topic to be dropped, imo.

    • Just read it earlier this year. Very candid and interesting. Although my focus waned in the second half as details of his life outside of music predominated.
    • I've just finished reading the fantastic and surprisingly in depth Richard Barnes book, The Who Maximum R&B. So thought I would give this another try after getting it on publication.
