Metallica & Maiden Book Info

June 19, 2012

Book reviews are coming in thick and fast. I’ll continue to update my Blog with more info, including any quotes and links as well as any interviews that I’ve done. I’ve pasted some info below…

 

On Metallica:

 

“…the real strength of ‘The Early Years’ is the passion and strength with which it tackles Metallica’s initial development. So much so that I listened to the first three albums as I read the opening chapters,  although an even bigger compliment coming from the fact that I was inspired to purchase ‘…And Justice’, so I could revisit it for the first time in sixteen years. No many books have the power to make me go shopping!”

Steven Reid – Fireworks (issue 52 – OUT NOW)

 

and…

 

“Each album is covered in detail, including not just a look at the music but also how the cover art was conceived. One interesting element is the rare memorabilia pictured throughout the book. There are flyers of early shows, ticket stubs, t-shirts, and, amusingly, a letter to the fan club apologizing for being slow to answer correspondence… 3/5”

On Iron Maiden:

 

“Neil Daniels fresh from his book on Metallica’s early years now turns his attention to one of the [greatest] metal bands of all time, Iron Maiden. This is a lovely illustrated tome with live concert photos plus memorabilia including concert tickets, posters and backstage passes. Good, quality finish – this is no cheap cash in book… For a reasonably priced illustrated history to the band you can’t go wrong and ideal for fans/collectors and the more casual metal reader.”
