Default Writing a book (not instructional) opinions wanted

For a while now I've been thinking about all the wonderful and wild experiences I've had playing in the music world since 1968. While I'm nowhere near the end of what I believe to be a successful career as a drummer I'm thinking about recording some of those experiences and the best way to do it would be in a book. In some sense this would be very personal as it would allow me to reflect on a ton of things that have happened over the years but it may also be of interest to folks who want to know what it's like to be a mainstream musician that isn't a "big name" celebrity. I guess you could call it something like being a workingman's musician. Do you think there would be interest to read something like that? Maybe it would shed some light on the reality of what most of us experience as musicians as opposed to the bios that are readily available about celebrity musicians.
