Only read a couple of these. In my misspent youth I uses to hang around the Creem House and got to hear Lester Banks rant. He died to soon.

Recognizing that this list was specifically not about individual bands, I would suggest some other books (which may be a bit more '60s oriented):
Dave Marsh, Before I Get Old
David Hajdu, Positively Fourth Street
Greil Marcus, Mystery Train
Greil Marcus, Lipstick Traces (one of my favorite books ever)
Joel Rosenman and John Roberts, Young Men With Unlimited Capital

And many more...

Also Lester Bangs, Psychotic Reactions and Carburetor Dung

I love those Marcus books.
