3 Great Rock Books to Read This Month

In the mood for drugs and debauchery? John Doe co-founded the band X, so he has firsthand knowledge of the birth of the Los Angeles punk scene. In his book, Under the Big Black Sun, members of X, the Minutemen and the Go-Go's tell the true story. Rich Cohen also has plenty of parties to recount in his new book, The Sun & the Moon & the Rolling Stones, since he was there with the Stones on tour. And if you need to prove a point to a know-it-all friend who's arguing why Kanye and Taylor Swift have an ongoing beef, Steven Hyden's Your Favorite Band Is Killing Me has all the details.
