Well, look no further, bunkie! Check out these upcoming publications:
Out August 14 (hey, that’s tomorrow!):
“The first memoir by Wayne Kramer, legendary guitarist and cofounder of quintessential Detroit proto-punk legends The MC5.” More info about Kramer’s MC50: Kick Out the Jams – The 50th Anniversary Tour (which I’m seeing in September) here.
Out September 18:
“The outrageous and often hilarious autobiography of legendary session musician and lead guitarist and singer of Toto.” Check out more about the current bizarre synchronicity between Toto, Weezer and Stranger Things here. (I’ll be at Toto’s Grand Rapids show in a couple of weeks; look for a review to follow. Hoping for advance copies on sale at the merch booth …)
Out October 23:
“The frontman of one of the greatest bands of all time tells the story of his rise from nothing to rock ‘n’ roll megastar, and his wild journey as the voice of The Who.” Given that Pete Townshend’s Who I Am has been out for a while, I’m looking forward to Daltrey’s take.
And, out November 13:
“The singer, guitarist, and songwriter, best known for this work with Wilco, opens up about his past, his songs, the music, and the people that have inspired him.” I’m a huge Wilco fan; Tweedy is one of the few remaining rockers I know who takes the idea of music as the basis for community seriously. Very interested in what he’ll be putting down here.
Any other rock books coming soon you’d like Progarchy fans to know about? Leave the info in the comments!
