Who Is the Best Musician-Turned-Author?
Dylan got such a good response to his 2004 best-seller "Chronicles: Volume One" that he's signed up to write six more books.
Richards' new book "Life" is still on best-seller lists, and critics found his tales of sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll hard to put down.
The guitar god released "Clapton: The Autobiography" in 2007, in which he opened up about addiction, love, heartbreak and of course, music.
The ex-Beatle's autobiography "I Me Mine" was published in 1980. John Lennon said he was hurt by how infrequently he appeared in the book, complaining that, "My influence on his life is absolutely zilch and nil."
The folksy pop-country singer published a book of poetry titled "A Night Without Armor" in 1998, which sold over 1 million copies and became a New York Times Bestseller.
Buffett has written three No. 1 best-sellers: "Tales from Margaritaville," "Where Is Joe Merchant" and "A Pirate Looks At Fifty."
Mötley Crüe bassist Nikki Six released the best-selling "Heroin Diaries: A Year in the Life of a Shattered Rock Star," in 2007, in which he discusses addiction and the "Girls Girls Girls" era.
Music fans, take note: Legendary folk singer Bob Dylan has inked a deal to write six new books, including two follow-ups to his 2004 best-seller "Chronicles: Volume One" and a collection based on his Sirius XM radio show.
Literary agent Andrew Wylie was seeking an eight-figure offer, Crain's New York Business reported, but it's unclear how much 69-year-old Dylan ultimately wrung out of Simon & Schuster.
We can see why Dylan signed up to write more books -- the singer once told Rolling Stone he was "spoiled" by the positive response to "Chronicles: Volume One."
"The reviews of this book, some of 'em almost made me cry - in a good way," he confessed. "I'd never felt that from a music critic, ever...."
Dylan is not the only musician to enjoy a little love from the best-seller lists. Readers can't get enough of hearing about Keith Richards' "Life" with the Rolling Stones. And back in the '90s, poetry fans were more likely to be studying Jewel than Shakespeare.
