Robbie set to pen autobiography with Random House

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) – Rocker Robbie Robertson is about to add “author” to his lengthy list of professional activities.

The former frontman for The Band said he will start penning his memoirs in a few months following a couple of aborted attempts with ghost writers. The Canadian rocker hopes the book will come out within two years through Random House.

“I’m very excited about doing it,” Robertson told Reuters, while getting ready for the April 5 release of his first solo album in 13 years. “I just have to roll up my sleeves, get a cabin in the woods and do it properly.”
