MR BLUE - Memoirs Of A Renegade

by Edward Bunker
(No Exit Press/ http://www.noexit.co.uk/)
   Edward Bunker's life is beyond the imaginings of most fiction writers. He was born in Hollywood, California, the son of a stagehand and Busby Berkeley chorus girl, whose early divorce propelled him into a series of boarding homes and military schools. From the age of five he repeatedly ran away, roaming the city streets at night. A proud character, combined with an IQ of 152, resulted in a series of altercations with the authorities. He became the youngest ever inmate of San Quentin at the age of seventeen, and there he learned survival skills and faced down the toughest prisoners in the system. He was befriended by Mrs Louise Wallis, a former star of the silent screen and wife of movie mogul, Hal Wallis, who produced films starring Bogart, Cagney, Edward G. Robinson and George Raft. She introduced Bunker to her circle of friends, including Jack Dempsey, Tennessee Williams, Aldous Huxley and William Randolph Hearst, whose guest he was at San Simeon.

GRIT, NOISE, and REVOLUTION
'The Birth Of Detroit Rock'n'roll'

by David A.Carson
(The University of Michigan Press -
http://www.press.umich.edu/)
   "From the early days of John Lee Hooker to the heyday of Motown and beyond, Detroit has enjoyed a long reputation as one of the crucibles of American pop music. In Grit, Noise and Revolution, David A.Carson turns the spotlight on those hard-rocking, long-haired musicians - influenced by Detroit's R&B heritage - who ultimately helped change the face of rock'n'roll.
   Carson tells the story of some of the great garage-inspired, blue-collar Motor City rock'n'roll bands that exemplified the Detroit rock sound : The MC5, Iggy Pop and The Stooges, Mitch Ryder and the Detroit Wheels, SRC, the Bob Seger System, Ted Nugent and the Amboy Dukes, and Grand Funk Railroad.
   An indispensable guide for rock aficionados, Grit, Noise, and Revolution features stories of these groundbreaking groups and is the first book to chronicle Detroit music of the 1960s and 70s - a pivotal era in rock music history"

EYE MIND The Saga Of Roky Erickson and the 13th Floor Elevators , the Pioneers of Psychedelic Sound 

by Paul Drummond - Foreword by Julian Cope
(Process / http://processmediainc.com/)
   The trailblazing 13th Floor Elevators released the first “psychedelic” rock album in America, transforming culture throughout the 1960s and beyond. The Elevators followed their own spiritual cosmic agenda — to change society by finding a new path to enlightenment. Their battles with repressive authorities are legendary.
Lead singer Roky Erickson was put away in a maximum security unit for the criminally insane for years. Tommy Hall, their Svengali lyricist, lived in a cave. Guitarist Stacy Sutherland was imprisoned. The drummer was involuntarily subjected to electric shock treatments.
This fascinating biography breaks decades of silence of band members and features dozens of never-before-printed photos. “One of the most exhilarating rock ‘n’ roll stories ever told.” — Julian Cope
