ZAPPA, FRANK / OCCHIOGROSSO, PETER ~ THE REAL FRANK ZAPPA BOOK
PAN BOOKS ~ 0-330-31625-7 ~ 1989 ~ English

Rock / Biography

This is exactly what one would expect from Frank - a book as unusual as his music and as brilliant. A sort of an autobiography, but in his unique way, with some hilarious passages and some very serious comments on life, art and politics. "Destroying the boundaries of the acceptable" is a great quote about Frank and this book is just another proof of that.


ZIMMER, DAVE / DILTZ, HENRY ~ CROSBY, STILLS & NASH: THE BIOGRAPHY
DA CAPO PRESS ~ 0-306-80974-5 ~ 2000 ~ English

Rock / Biography / Art & Photography

This is an updated version of this book first published in 1984. Musician´s biographies tend to be really the worst possible trash, therefore this one is a true exception (that proves the rule). Intelligently written (by Zimmer) and accompanied by hundreds of photographs by Henry Diltz, one of the best (ever!) Rock photographers, this book is a treasure and a genuine pleasure to hold in your hands. This edition brings things up to date through 1999 and if you are interested in those 3 master musicians or in Rock music in general, this is a must!
