4. Glory Days: The Bruce Springsteen Story, Volume 1 by Dave Marsh

5. Can't Be Satisfied: The Life and Times of Muddy Waters by Robert Gordon

6. The Beatles by Hunter Davies

7. Psychotic Reactions and Carburetor Dung by Lester Bangs

8. Shakey: The Biography of Neil Young by Jimmy McDonough

9. Our Band Could Be Your Life by Michael Azerrad

10. Amazing Grace: The Story of America's Most Beloved Song by Steve Turner

Yea! I love Wilco! And they're going to be at Voodoo Fest. I've seen them twice so far and had tickets for the show they canceled a few years back.

That's a great list - my library is sadly lacking in this area, which is odd because of how much I love music and dance.
