Pigs Might Fly

I got this book over the weekend and haven't been able to put it down yet, well just for a small while but Mark Blake's story of Pink Floyd is a fantastic read. There are a few bio's of the band out there including the drummer Mason's Inside out but this one sure is detailed and gives a great inside into one of the most interesting bands in rock history. It does lack the discography which I feel is essential in any band bio.
Talking about Band Books, it seems to be the only things I read lately. The last I read was Neil Young's "Shakey" and it took quite some time to read. A lot happened in his life and after reading it, it feels like you went through it all too but its a very in-dept analysis of the man and a must read.
Any suggestions from the readers? What have you read in terms of band books, good or bad?

that sounds cool, i'll have to check it out. and i still need to read Shakey.
if you want a quick/short easy read, the book about Wilco, "Learning to Die" is pretty good.
