We've discussed rockumentaries before on Rock School, but this week, we'll be talking about rock star autobiographies. Every artist we'll be talking about this week has written an autobiography on themselves that we think you should read yourself. We're going full textbook on this week's Rock School!

Rs_logo_small In the world of the rock star, sometimes what we see is not really all there is too it. Like any good artist, their mystification helps to bring out their art. We only really get to see the real picture if we get it from the artists themselves. This is where autobiographies come in. This week's Rock School will be focusing entirely on the most interesting autobiographies ever written by your favorite rock stars. We're opening up the pages and going in depth on this week's Rock School! Rock on!
