Not all autobios but here are some good music-related reads I've pulled at thrifts. 

 

Loretta Lynn - Coal Miner's Daughter

Motley Crue - The Dirt

Levon Helm - This Wheel's On Fire

Henry Rollins - Get In The Van

Anthony Kiedis - Scar Tissue

Robert Scotto - Moondog, The Viking of 6th Avenue

 

I'm not a Crue or a Chili Peppers fan but I figured I'd give them a read because they've at least led interesting lives, and I enjoyed both a lot (especially The Dirt).

"Life" by Keith Richards was a really good read too.

Cool, I've read the Crue, Keith Richards and Chili Peppers but not the others. For any fans of English/Irish 80s stuff I can thoroughly recommend Julian Cope's and Bill Drummond's autobiographies and A Drink With Shane MacGowan. All very entertaining and enlightening.

Also, found some stuff in thrifts today, pics to follow.

Could you by chance post some additional pictures?  I recently picked up a pair of Charvet shoes and with nothing online regarding pedigree it has been suggested they may have been made by Weston.  Specifically the underneath and the side wall where the details are listed?  Thanks, I appreciate it.

70s or 80s. Care instructions on the label indicate post-1972.

Does anybody have any recommendations for free photo editing programs? The one that came with my computer sucks ass.

Photoshop is relatively easy to acquire for free.

"Two full suits actually!" I said and showed him the other pair. Ended up talking about the local thrift scene for about 15 minutes as we browsed the rest of the racks together. Was a good time. 

 

This! 

 

What a great story.  Makes you feel better about people in thrifts.   There are a lot of assholes that act as if they own the thrift stores and its great to hear about people willing to be kind.
