Scar Tissue: Anthony Kiedis Red Hot Chili Peppers [used book], Anthony Kiedis with Larry Sloman
1 Scar Tissue: Anthony Kiedis Red Hot Chili Peppers [used book]
Anthony Kiedis with Larry Sloman UK Time Warner Books 2004 0316729701 / 9780316729703 Soft cover Good Book Trade Paperback 
In SCAR TISSUE Anthony Kiedis, the charismatic and highly articulate frontman of the Red Hot Chili Peppers, recounts his remarkable life story, and the history of the band itself. He tells of his childhood living in LA with his unconventional father; an early life spent hobnobbing with celebrities and becoming a child film actor; setting up the band with his school friend Flea in the early 80s; discovering a love of live performance and songwriting; and the years spent struggling with a drug addiction that left him a homeless multi-millionaire living on speedball mixtures of heroin and cocaine. SCAR TISSUE far transcends the typical rock biography, because Anthony Kiedis is anything but a typical rock star. The result is a surprisingly honest and moving account of a man who almost destroyed himself, and the band that helped him rebuild his life.

2 Mamma Mia! How Can I Resist You? The Inside Story of Mamma Mia! and the Songs of ABBA [used book]
Benny Andersson and Bjorn Ulvaeus and Judy Craymer UK Weidenfeld and Nicolson 2006 0297844210 / 9780297844211 Hardcover Good Good Book 32.0 x 25.5 x 3.0 cm 
In the 1970's, the Swedish musical phenomenon known as ABBA, Agnetha Fältskog, Benny Andersson, Björn Ulvaeus, and Anni-Frid Lyngstad, succeeded in reinventing the world's perception of pop. They produced hit after catchy hit, each one instantly recognizable, infectious, and irresistible. Nearly a quarter of a century later, these beloved songs gave birth to the blockbuster musical MAMMA MIA!, which became a legend in its own right. It opened in 85 cities and has since been seen by more than 20 million people throughout the world. This officially sanctioned book tells the double story of the band and the play and it's told by those know it best: two of the group's singer/songwriters and MAMMA MIA! producer Judy Craymer. It's colorful literally and figuratively, and jam-packed with illustrations from the group's own archives. Through first-person recollections from ABBA members, intertwined with commentary from the MAMMA MIA! team, Thank You for the Music cuts through the thicket of myths and misconceptions that have grown up around ABBA to reveal what actually happened.

Playing to Win: The Definitive Biography of John Farnham, Jeff Apter
5 Playing to Win: The Definitive Biography of John Farnham
Jeff Apter Australia Nero 2016 1863958800 / 9781863958806 Hardcover New New Book 24.2 x 16.3 x 3.2 cm 
Teen idol. King of Pop. Voice of the common man. Australian of the Year. Friend. Icon. Superstar. John Farnham is the quintessential Aussie legend. As a teenager he gave up an apprenticeship to chase his musical dreams, hitting the big time with 'Sadie (The Cleaning Lady)'. A family man at heart, and the most loyal of friends, John was sometimes uncomfortable with the spotlight and for many years struggled to take his career to the heights that those close to him, including Molly Meldrum and Glenn Wheatley, felt it could reach. He finally hit his stride with 1986's Whispering Jack and the breakaway success of 'You're the Voice', which became the anthem of a generation. John lived it up – holidaying with the Skases and dining at the Lodge with Bob Hawke – but always came back down to earth. And the King of Pop would also become king of the comeback, showing longevity rare in the music industry. Thanks to the support of those close to John, author and music industry insider Jeff Apter provides a rare glimpse inside Farnsie's world. Insightful, entertaining and deeply personal, Playing to Win is the definitive John Farnham story.

Tragedy: The Sad Ballad of The Gibb Brothers # Bee Gees, Jeff Apter
6 Tragedy: The Sad Ballad of The Gibb Brothers # Bee Gees
Jeff Apter Australia Echo Publishing 2015 1760060186 / 9781760060183 Soft cover New Book Trade Paperback 
The rise and fall of the brothers Gibb is perhaps the greatest saga in Australian, even world, music history. As ubiquitous as the falsetto harmonies, flares and multi-platinum record sales were the tragedies: the highs, the lows, the highs again. And then the brothers fell, one by one. Not long before his death, Robin made it clear that he believed the Gibbs had been forced to pay the highest possible cost for their success. 'All the tragedies my family has suffered . . . is a kind of karmic price we are paying for all the fame and fortune we've had.' This is the story of all four brothers' incredible careers, lives and influence. A beautifully drawn examination of the Gibb 'curse' and an all-too-human look at the rollercoaster ride of fame. Captures the incredible highs, and the terrible lows: divorce, drunkenness and death. For Bee Gees fans, and for everyone, because we've all been touched by the music. Jeff Apter is the author of 20 books, including Up from Down Under: How Australian Music Changed the World and Johnny O'Keefe. Rocker.Legend.Wild One.

Beds Are Burning Midnight Oil: The Journey [used book], Mark Dodshon
8 Beds Are Burning Midnight Oil: The Journey [used book]
Mark Dodshon Australia Penguin 2004 0670041637 / 9780670041633 Soft cover Book Trade Paperback 
Since its genesis in 1976, Midnight Oil - fronted by the charismatic and passionate Peter Garrett until his departure from the band in late 2002 - has at various times been synonymous with beer-barn angst, green political activism, indigenous advocacy and musical nonconformism. At the same time this hugely popular band has been a mainstay of commercial radio and an icon of contemporary Australian culture. Despite the band's high profile, its members are notoriously private people who have never before revealed details of the inner workings of Midnight Oil. In Beds Are Burning, Mark Dodshon tells the full and frank story of the remarkable career of the band and its members - Peter Garrett, Jim Moginie, Martin Rotsey, Bones Hillman, Rob Hirst and manager/'sixth member' Gary Morris. Far more than a 'rockography', Beds Are Burning is a book about music, sensitivity, culture, relationships - and, above all, integrity and passion.
