Book Hunters in Brief #147: Rocking Memoirs

On this week when Bob Dylan became a Nobel Laureate, and Bruce Springsteen is in the midst of a book tour as opposed to his customary arena-packing, six-encores and a cross-stage vamp kind of tour, Book Hunters got to thinking about musicians on paper. Below is just a sampling of what some musicians have to say that they could not say in a song.

Mo’ Meta Blues: The World According to Questlove by Ahmir “Questlove” Thompson

Hunger Makes Me a Modern Girl by Carrie Brownstein

 Chronicles, Volume One by Bob Dylan

One Day It’ll All Make Sense: A Memoir by Common

The Universal Tone: Bringing My Story to Light by Carlos Santana

Delta Lady by Rita Coolidge

You say if God had wanted musicians to write books he wouldn't have bothered giving them a sense of rhythm and all the excess cool. Book Hunters say we can't argue with that kind of logic and wouldn't want to if we could. So just visit Book Hunters online and tell us what you do like to read and we'll whip up a custom reading list for you that'll have you singing our praises.
