I read Tarmarkins' book and graces' biography- definitely good reads! I don't think they get too involved with the stories behind too many of the songs except for the typical ones. I have always found Graces' point of view fascinating and hysterical, and I have always enjoyed reading stories about the group as a whole. I think I learned most of my knowledge on the airplane by just investigating old magazines, and interviews.Box Of Rain wrote:Anybody read Tamarkin's book, or either of the Grace biographies. Was wondering if any of 'em are any good. I'm particularly interested in hearing some of the stories behind the songs, particularly like Rejoyce or Share A little Joke.. Do any of them talk much about the origins of the tunes?
If you can get your hands on some old Rolling Stone Magazines they are actually quite informative (Not like todays Rolling Stone) Books chronicling the History of Rock and roll and the psychedelic sound that can be found in libraries (usually are pretty old as well) are things to check out. My experience is also with European books about music they seem to get a little more in depth.Box Of Rain wrote:I've always been interested in JA interviews, now that you mention it. Must not be a lot on the internet - I type in a search, but generally not many results come up - just stuff on Starship from like, the early eighties.

Everyone on here may think I believe that is what she is saying. I originally thought that was what she was saying when I first heard the song and even for awhile after that. Then, I read the lyrics in print somewhere, and then I knew I was wrong. I just thought my screen name should be from my first memories of the band, and this came to me. I hope it wasn't a mistake.
