Three notable books about musicians and performing

Notable | See the music

Three new books capture musicians and performances in some words and many pictures.

Bonnaroo: What, Which, This, That, the Other (Abrams Image), edited by Holly George-Warren, celebrates the summer music and arts festival's first decade with hundreds of photos and lively oral history from performers and fans.

Commando: The Autobiography of Johnny Ramone (Abrams Image) is an in-your-face memoir with many personal photos, top 10 lists (favorite singers: Elvis, Bing Crosby) and more from the Ramones guitarist, who died of cancer in 2002.

Music Box: Photographing the All-Time Greats (Abrams), text by Gino Castaldo, collects hundreds of fascinating photos of musicians on stage and off, from Robert Johnson's eerie photo booth self-portrait to a Lady Gaga poster on a Beijing street.
