Everyone seems to like his books. I'm big into autobiographies as
well. Everyone has an interesting story to tell. I am big into
comic books. I don't collect much anymore, but I do hang out at
Barnes and Noble or the local library, reading graphic novels and
classical, blues, even the occasional country song (if the story is
a good one.)Favorite bands include Led Zeppelin, Miles Davis, Judas
Priest, Mozart, Beethoven, Grandmaster Flash, Public Enemy,
Megadeth, Metallica, Ac/Dc (Bon Scott!), Eminem, The Art of Noise,
Jimi Hendrix Experience, Iron Butterfly, Cream, Deep Purple, Crosby
Stills and Nash (and Neil Young!), Tesla, The Who, The Beatles,
Sean Lee, Stevie Wonder, tons of retro stuff. Pretty much
everything that rules.
