 Gary Lachman (ex-Blondie)?
Author: BCE

TP's Blondie entry: "After the Know disbanded, Valentine retired from music to become a writer and journalist."

As an unapologetic fan of "Coast to Coast AM" -- which really isn't that tin-foil hat anymore despite its reputation as such -- a lot of the former Blondie bassist's books are absolutely my cup of tea.

Why have I not heard of him before? Everyone one of his books looks like a keeper.

Obviously this book of his (dealing with his time in Blondie and in Iggy's backup band) is definitely recommended:

https://www.amazon.com/New-York-Rocker-Generation-1974-1981/dp/1560259442/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1500697315&sr=1-1&keywords=gary+valentine

Admittedly haven't checked out his non-musical books. but I've enjoyed his articles in Fortean Times.
