Of the ones that haven't been mentioned yet,I'd also recommend:

Mick Farren - Give the Anarchist a Cigarette
Laugh-out-loud hilarious and sadly poignant in equal measures. The chapter in which the Deviants deliberately provoked a riot whilst supporting Led Zeppelin in Exeter is a hoot, whilst the chapter where they kicked him out of the band for not being as conventionally musical as the other members should resonate with anyone who's ever experienced the ups and downs of band politics.

Deke Leonard - Rhinos, Winos and Lunatics
Mostly just laugh-out-loud hilarious, other than a terrifying and violent encounter with the Belgian police in which the latter arrested, temporarily jailed (and in one case, beat up) the entire Manband on suspicion of being Baader-Meinhof affiliates. Just as unputdownable as Farren's tome, with deke earning extra points for having the chutzpah to say "fuck off" to Tony Hatch.
