Does any one have any recommendations for books on a few subjects?

Biker gangs

White supremecy (sp)  DISCLAIMER - I don't believe in it or condone it.  I just find these groups fascinating.  Kind of like a train wreck...............

Musician bios or books on the music industry.

Thanks!

The Mammoth Book of Bikers is a pretty good one.

Into a World of Hate: A Journey Among the Extreme Right by Nick Ryan. I read this in a sociology class in college that focused on issues of racism.
 We also read A Hundred Little Hitlers: The Death of a Black Man, the Trial of a White Racist, and the Rise of the Neo-Nazi Movement in America by Elinor Langer.

There was an excellent thread a couple of weeks ago with music book recommendations:  http://www.paperbackswap.com/forum/topic.php?t=193478

Hells Angels by Hunter S Thompson is a minor classic.
