Comrade Rockstar: The Life and Mystery of Dean Reed, the All-American Boy Who Brought Rock 'n' Roll to the Soviet Union by Reggie Nadelson

Image
I was living in West Berlin when Dean Reed died under mysterious circumstances in East Berlin. I even managed to pick up one of his LPs in East Berlin.

So it just so happens I am currently reading a book that is related not only to music but also to my pseudo-Slavic internet nom de plume. 8)

I'm reading the Jimi Hendrix: The Intimate Story of a Betrayed Musical Legend. I've read a few on Hendrix and other than Room Full of Mirrors this is the best I've read. It's cool insight because she seemed to be a genuine friend of his. Good stuff.

Barnaby Rudge. Trying to reawaken the love of Dickens I had in earlier life...

Seem to keep picking up Guitarist magazine instead, though. :oops:

Not at all music-oriented, but re-re-rereading Gen Robert L Scott's "God Is My Co-Pilot," memoirs of his early life and flying "with" the Flying Tigers" and other very early WW II exploits.

Every time through it is amazing, especially his one-man, one-plane "private" war against the Japanese in May and June of 1942.
