Favourite Biographies/Autobiographies

Shamelessly I am posting this in the hope that I get some good recommendations. Ordinarily most of my reading is fiction but I have phases of reading biographical/autobiographical books and get a lot of enjoyment out of the good ones.

Over the years the ones I recall enjoying most are:- Bob Geldof – Is that it? Viv Nicholson – Spend,spend, spend. Miles Davis – The autobiography with Quincy Troupe.

Also an honourable mention for Strange affair – the biography about Richard Thompson by Patrick Humphreys.

So recommendations please or if you prefer just your favourites if you don’t mind another list post.
