Celebrate Beatlemania's 50th with rock etc memoirs and bios

Here's the suggested list, but if you have a great book by or about your favorite artist, I'll add. Just make sure it's someone whose career was in full force mid-60s through 70s.


Shout!: The Beatles in Their Generation by Phillip Norman

Wild Tales:  A Rock and Roll Life by Graham Nash

Just Kids by Patti Smith

Life by Keith Richard

I, Tina by Tina Turner and Kurt Lode

    Sorry to miss out at the last minute but taking my wife to the hospital in the morning for an early operation so bad timing. Keith Richards autobiography is great, highly recommend it.

    Because of an unofficial cancellation and the fact that I've expanded allowable attendees by one, everyone who was on the wait list as of today is good to come. Looking forward to a good meeting!

    Barb Pratt cancels but not able to via web. If possible, cancel her so a waiting list can come. Thanks.

    I have to RSVP No. It's my birthday and I will be having family in town. I hate to miss out on the meetup, but see you all next month!

    In keeping with the 60's thrust I would like to suggest "Memory Babe: A Critical Biography of Jack Kerouac"
    by Gerald Nicosia for an upcoming group. Supposedly the best biography of this fascinating and groundbreaking man.

      Dave, that's a great suggestion for a future meeting, but this one is really focused on musicians.

      Oh, yeah, I know. Thanks.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
