The ten best rock biographies

At the Independent, Simon Jablonski named the ten best rock biographies.

One title on the list:
Nirvana: the True Story
Everett True

Kurt Cobain's biography is so familiar, it's baffling why we need this particular rock story told again. Everett True's close relationship with the band and his passion for their music does however make this a good reference work. An illuminating insight into the complex dynamics that held Nirvana together and eventually pulled them apart.
Read about another title on the list.
