Al Kooper's "Backstage Passes and Backstabbing Bastards: Memoirs of a Rock 'N' Roll Survivor" was serialized in Rolling Stone when it came out, so I never picked up a copy. It's back in print, and I won't let it get away twice-- without question it's the best rock'n'roll memoir I've ever read, perhaps because Kooper has the wit to realize that the things he's seen, and the people he played with are far and away more interesting and important to the reader than he is.
