Neil Young's bio "Shakey". It's 11 years old, but better late than never, eh.

It never made the trip over from Scotland with me but I remember enjoying it, not that Neil comes off particularly well

I have lost the reading mojo a little. Sometimes it seems like a trial to read a book. The modern malaise. I am stuck a quarter way in to book four of the Song of Ice and Fire series.

You need to read " Waging Heavy Peace " It's pure Neil, spoken first person and very true to the man. Currently I am powering through a lot of Carl Haissen.

I've read that as well. Interesting perspective, but often reads like it was written by a six year old. ;-)

I am reading Carl Hiassen's newest "Bad Monkey". It has been a while since he has put out an adult book. His last few were geared towards kids/teens, which is great, I hope some point my daughter will read those.

Bob Dylan's "Chronicles Volume 1" Hard to put this one down, but I've been very busy getting settled into a new place...
It's sort of like Bob hosting his own "Behind The Music" with his wonderfully detailed writing style transferred smoothly to the text format. I actually skipped the beginning which was early in his career, meeting John Hammond, etc., and was going to put it down, but I found his narratives about his life while making his first album with Daniel Lanois (Oh Mercy). Fabulous...

I'm slowly making my way through the Pearl Jam 20 book. It's interesting to read about how the band formed and read the members' thoughts and stories about the band. It's also good prep for seeing them in a few weeks.

Reading Gregg Allman's biog... it reads more like an extended interview jotted down verbatim, but some great stories and easy to read.

I read things in snippets these days - hardly have the patience to read book length work any more.

This morning I re-read part of Thoreau's "Resistance To Civil Government" to prepare for class. Tonight I might read more of "A Sand County Almanac" or Steven Wise's "Drawing The Line - Science and the Case for Animal Rights," also all for class.

Not that I possess any class, mind you.

I really enjoyed Bad Monkey.

It's great so far. Very different from your average biog. And he's quite the funny man.
