Usually I only read fiction but Cockney Reject by Jeff Turner is a great read. I don't know if the subject matter would interest you at all, but it's the autobiography of Stinky Turner the singer for the Cockney Rejects. Here's the Amazon review: Jeff Turner was raised in Custom House in the East End of London, with seven siblings to share a three-bedroom council house. When the Sex Pistols' "God Save the Queen" hit, his brother Mickey picked up a guitar and Jeff picked up a microphone, and together they stormed the music scene as The Cockney Rejects. The Rejects stood for being young, working class, and not taking anything from anyone, resulting in agression and violence being the main staple at their shows. However, the madness couldn't last forever, and as chaos at the gigs spiralled out of control, so did the band. Jeff was left dazed and penniless, and here tells his story.
