1. Dodd Darin- Dream Lovers: The Magnificent Shattered Lives of Bobby Darin and Sandra Dee

2. Mary Wilson- Dreamgirl: My Life As A Supreme

The books above are all ones that I've read. However, there are many music bios (too numerous to mention) that I'd like to read someday.

I've read the Beatles one and the Mickey Dolenz one. Both were great. I've read tons others - Rock (auto)biographies are some of my favorite reads.

LOVED Micky's book. Always on the lookout for new great rock bios to read so have been enjoying people's answers!

I've yet to read Micky's book, mostly cos Micky annoys me. I wish Peter would do a book...I also need to read Davy's updated one...

Cookingmom: Celeb bios in general are very enjoyable for me. I need to get more disciplined in my reading because there are books on my shelf that I haven't read yet. This is why I rarely buy books anymore.

Hippie-chick: Micky is my favorite Monkee and his charm/sense of humor really shone in his autobio.

Mistress of the D: To the best of my knowledge, Peter is the only Monkee that doesn't have a book written about him (either a bio or autobio). About 10 years ago, there was a bio about Mike called "Total Control". Although I didn't read it, I don't believe it was very favorable to "Wool Hat".
