46 Essential Rock Reads, as Told by the LA Times

    Everybody whip out your bifocals, because this list of rock ‘n’ roll reads is a doozy. The LA Times recently asked itself if rock music and literature make a happy couple, and the answer was a resounding, resplendent yes. Not only are new interpretations of rock history and its effect on popular culture published every year, but for decades musicians have been writing stimulating autobiographies that chronicle their time in the biz. Check out the LA Times‘ list of 46 Essential Rock Reads, which includes such page-turners as Madonna’s infamous Sex, Rob Sheffield’s Love Is a Mix Tape, and Michael Azerrad’s Our Band Could Be Your Life.
