How much do you really know about your favorite composers, performers and musicians? Think you've learned everything there is to learn about them? You might be surprised! A read-through of any of the biographies found in this section is sure to shed some light on the lives of the most influential artists in music history. Even if you're a self-proclaimed expert, you're bound to discover something new. Not so interested in reading about musicians? That's okay too: some of these "biographies" are about instruments or events rather than people, so chances are there's still something here for you - all you have to do is decide what you'd like to read about.
Depending on the topic, you might even find a whole range of different books to choose from. Nirvana fans, for instance, are sure to love the top-rated Kurt Cobain Journals Book from Alfred, as well as The Rough Guide to Nirvana. The more influential a band, the more there is to read! Take the Beatles as another example - the Music Sales The Complete Beatles Recording Sessions and the Backbeat Books The Unreleased Beatles Book are just the tip of the iceberg of materials and resources you'll find here about the Fab Four.
If you're more interested in reading about "what" than "who", maybe the Hal Leonard The Rickenbacker Electric Bass - 50 Years As Rock's Bottom will be the book for you. Or, how about the Hal Leonard Guitar Player: The Inside Story of the First Two Decades? If you're a Fender guitar aficionado, then The Dream Factory: The Fender Custom Shop is a can't-miss title. And all of these books are only the beginning of what's waiting in the lineup to be read.
This category may be devoted to biographies, but the word "biography" might not even do justice to the variety of books available. No matter your musical interest, it's definitely worth taking some time to have a close look at everything in the section. Chances are high you'll find something that piques your interest, and helps you broaden your musical knowledge as a result!
