Neil Young's new memoir Waging Heavy Peace hit stores this week, and I am looking forward to reading the life story of one of the musicians I most respect.
To enter this week's contest, name the musical artist whose memoir you would most like to read to win this book and a $100 Threadless gift certificate. My choice would easily be the Smiths, and that wish comes true in December when Tony Fletcher's A Light That Never Goes Out: The Enduring Saga of the Smiths hits US shores.
One winner, chosen randomly from the commenters, will receive the following prizes:
A $100 Threadless gift certificate to buy book-related t-shirts like A Voyage of Discovery, A Book Lover, November Was a Good Month, Brainy Rainbow, or Word!, music-related t-shirts like The Official Guide to Music, Boom Box, Sound of the Dark, or anything else that catches your fancy.
If you have already have the book or it doesn't interest you, I am happy to substitute a second $100 Threadless gift certificate for the novel.
The winner will be chosen randomly at midnight ET Friday evening (October 2nd)
