Hi to all.  We'll be welcoming Daylight Savings' return with an evening meeting (not yet scheduled) in March. To commemorate the 50th anniversary of Beatlemania, the theme will be artists'  memoirs and bios from rock and related genres. There are so &)#&)$% many good books that I've limited the selection to artists whose careers were underway by the mid 70s. The titles I've tentatively picked are:

Shout!: The Beatles in Their Generation by Phillip Norman

Laurel Canyon: The Inside Story of Rock-and-Roll's Legendary Neighborhood

By Michael Walker

Just Kids by Patti Smith

Life by Keith Richard

I, Tina by Tina Turner and Kurt Loder

If your favorite  isn't here and you'd like to suggest it OR if you are on board with one of the books listed, please email me your pick, but only if you are actually interested in coming to the meeting and discussing your chosen book. (Since I haven't designated a time and date, I understand you could make a suggestion and then have a calendar conflict.) If there is strong support for any particular book and it meets the criteria, I'll try to include it.
