>>7621739 Autobiograhy - Morrissey is a haunting, poetic dance around The Smiths and Morrissey's life that could be heralded as one of the greatest books of the modern era if it didn't fall completely on its ass in the last quarter.
>>7621739 Miles Davis' autobiography is pretty damn fascinating, even if you don't like jazz. He lived a fairly vivid yet troubling life (e.g. feeding a drug habit so monstrous that he pawned off his belongings and stole clothes from friends to pawn off too), while also detailing how he managed the recording of many of his albums, his live performances, his views on race, sex and religion. He was a fascinating person and a fairly wise one.
Also I'd recommend Charles Mingus' Beneath The Underdog. I didn't enjoy it as much as Miles' autobiography, and it's less about Mingus' music and performances and more about his life, his lifestyle, his hyper-sexual affairs and his mental instability, mostly from the perspective of his conscience. It's a surprisingly abstract memoir that may have you doubting how legitimate it is, but it's enjoyable.
High Fidelity by Nick Hornby. Not about music in the sense that it deals with theory or musicians, but it illustrates how much music affected people's lives in the 90's very well. It's nothing special, just your everyday lad lit novel.
