Music fans are a gift in themselves when it comes to Christmas. Their favourite genres and artists were probably one of the first things you learned about them, their home is likely to be filled with records, posters and photos from favourite gigs, and you’ve heard their speech on their favourite album of all time more times than you’d like to count. So when it comes to Christmas presents, you can shop armed with all the knowledge on their musical tastes that you’ve acquired over the year.
And one of the surprising places that you might actually find something they’ll really love is the books section! Countless great musicians have released fascinating books over the years, on everything from how their career got started, to their time on the road, to their personal life and experiences in the limelight. And this year has been a particularly good one for music books, with the likes of Bruce Dickinson, Robbie Williams, Wiley, Blue, Goldie and Art Garfunkel releasing books.
