One Train Later

Genre: Nonfiction, Music; Author: Andy Summers; Publisher: Thomas Dunne Books

A disarming, surprisingly literary memoir by the ex-Police guitarist, who’s jammed with everyone from Eric Clapton to Jimi Hendrix.

Brush With Death
A bloody Yorkshire car crash in the ’60s; the yakuza’s murderous blackmail plot on an Animals Japan tour; his Kevin Ayers bandmates dangling him from a ferry over ice-cold Norwegian waters.

Final Judgment
A rollicking, you-are-there history of the ’60s
