Neil Young isn't the only rocker vying for readers this fall. Inspired, no doubt, by the critical and commercial success of recent volumes by Keith Richards and Patti Smith (the latter of which won a National Book Award in 2010), a host of musicians have entered the memoir game of late, crowding bookstore shelves with backstage tales of guitars, groupies and how that No. 1 hit has always been misunderstood. Not all of these artists enjoy the respect showered upon Young and his classic-rock cronies.

Rock star John Taylor was adamant about not sitting directly in front of the window of his two-story villa on the grounds of the Sunset Marquis hotel. "They'll see me, they'll see me," protested Taylor, a 24-year-old string bean. Who? Assassins? "No . . . worse than that," he said nervously, peeking out the window from behind the drapes. "Those girls will see me. I don't want too many of them to gather outside. I don't want any hassles."

A top Treasury Department official said Thursday that China now had the ability to let its currency's value be set on the open market, a step that would presumably force its value upward and moderate the U.S. trade deficit with the world's most populous country. John Taylor, undersecretary of the Treasury for international affairs, said China had adopted all the institutions it needed to let its currency float without sinking on world markets.

In reporting the struggle for control of Disney productions, John Taylor is telling the quintessential Disney story of innocence and goodness menaced by the forces of evil. While "Storming the Magic Kingdom" is a solidly researched and entirely factual account of the events leading up to the takeover of the company by a coalition of corporate raiders and financial manipulators, the book has all the qualities of an animated film.

John Taylor dodged, danced and eluded his pursuers with ease Monday--and that was after the 27-year-old wide receiver's 11-catch, 286-yard performance in the 49ers' 30-27 victory over the Rams. Like the Ram defense, reporters found Taylor nearly impossible to catch after his team-record spree. His 286 yards exceeded the previous San Francisco record of 241 yards, set in 1985 by Jerry Rice.

John Taylor chronicles and laments the elevation of greed from the status of Deadly Sin to national ideal during the 1980s in this brief social history. He recounts the fiscal shenanigans of investment banker Charlie Atkins (who spent an estimated $18 million a year on himself during the early '80s); watches artist Mark Kostabi grind out high-priced paintings in his loft-factory, and shares the gaucheries of billionairess Susan Gutfreund.

When Stephen "Tin Tin" Duffy left his post as the original lead singer of Duran Duran, it was because he thought the band wasn't going anywhere. Twenty years later, bassist John Taylor left because he felt the band had gone as far as it ever would. A founding member of the Fab Five, Taylor jumped ship following the Birmingham band's attempted mid-'90s comeback, which produced the hits "Ordinary World" and "Come Undone" off 1993's "The Wedding Album".

A City Council candidate has been acquitted of charges that he falsely declared that he lived in the city. John Taylor, 51, a retired businessman, was indicted May 7 by a grand jury on two felony charges of submitting false nomination papers for the November 2000 election. Prosecutors alleged that Taylor lives in an unincorporated area but, in order to run for a council seat, stated that he lived in Yorba Linda. The defense argued that any mistakes Taylor made were due to inexperience.

The title song in the much-awaited new album from Diana Krall is a gorgeous Leslie Bricusse ballad from the 1967 film "Dr. Dolittle." And her capacity to find its tender inner qualities is one of the touchstones of the recording, a clear indication of Krall's desire to take her singing beyond the light-hearted trio jazz formats that largely have dominated her work in the past.

Near the final pages of John Taylor's "Falling"--when not only his marriage has unraveled, but so too, it appears, has the couple's resolve to remain friendly and avoid disputes about custody or money--he asks his soon-to-be former wife in a mediation session how she expects him to come up with the money she's demanding from him. "Write a book," she tells him. So he did. The result is this thoughtful, ambivalent and melancholy memoir, subtitled "The Story of One Marriage."
