Howard Grimes Autobiography
If you have not heard Howard Grimes' name, you have certainly heard his drum licks on scores of recordings made at Royal Studios and elsewhere. His steady rhythm punctuates music by Al Green, Rufus Thomas, William Bell, and many more. His life story, penned in his own words, is the gritty, reality of the Memphis music scene , equal measures of joy and tragedy.  The book came out in July and is a must read for Memphis music fans. Very nice foreword from Preston Lauterbach. As always, try to buy local -- Stax Museum gift shop, Burke's, or Novel --or if you want to order online, get it from Howard's site
