The Beatles: The Biography by Bob Spitz
This is the most heavy and intense book I've read so far. There are so much information and emotion and stories inside, I regret I had not read it with a pencil and a piece of paper. The biography centers around John Lennon life, but as the plot expands, it pick up the involvement of other Beatles (Paul Mccartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr) and other related people in such fine sorting and arrangement.
My favourite part: the journey of the young Beatles and how they formed the band and also the stories behind the making of each of their songs/ albums. Although I think there are some minor part left uncovered and untold, you can called this book the Beatles Bible. Credit to the author for this well written biography. I give 4.25 out of 5 stars for it.
Corey Taylor: Seven Deadly Sins by Corey Taylor (Slipknot and Stone Sour frontman)
Growing up in a horrible way, Corey Taylor's life was saved by music. Music is his prayer, his religion and his god. In the end, he made the organized religions and all the seven deadly sins look illegal to this present time and made his own seven (that include shitty music as a sin).
As a reminder, this book isn't the biography of Corey Taylor but more like his opinions and views towards life of a sinner, which in the church stigma; he is a bad person and will go to hell. Read this book with an open eyes and mind. Cause' I often been left out from his long explanation, I give this book 2.5 out of 5 stars.
