They do not participate in a historical discussion of previous works or historical thought. Despite this, music biographies do prove to be important documents for a historian in their research, but the researcher must interrogate this source with a fine tooth comb and be prepared to dig deep into the author’s biography or other documentation to prove out any claims of truth or fact. Matt Follett and Scott Willett address the typical frustration of historians with many music biographies in their review of an Allman Brothers Band biography.
