I also read the Costello book. Liked the writing style; it was a good, entertaining bit of stuff. Really enjoyed "I Am Brian Wilson." If you have a chance, try it. As crazy as he is painted, he seems to--in his older age--have a level head about this life.
Now I am starting Springsteen's autobio. NOT as Bruce fan, but am reading because--although about 13 years his junior--he was brought up in a pretty goofy East Coast Catholic upbringing as I was...and I also like reading the thoughts of talented songwriters (processes, influences, etc.).
Also starting my revisit of some dystopian stuff I had read decades back (Orwell, Huxley, Bradbury, Vonnegut).
Sounds a bit like the "Get 15 books for 10 cents" book club ads from the '60s! Replies:
